Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To give these Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas some added spice and flavor, sprinkle a few dashes of Old El Paso™ taco sauce or extra red pepper sauce on the tortilla before folding over.
  • tip 2
    For a speedier Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas recipe, shred leftover cooked chicken or purchased rotisserie chicken, or use canned chunk chicken breast in place of the poached chicken.
