Updated May 25, 2022

Ingredients

  • 1 package (9 oz) frozen cooked southwestern-seasoned chicken breast strips, thawed, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped drained roasted red bell peppers (from 7-oz jar)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 4 tortillas from 1 package (11 oz) Old El Paso™ Flour Tortillas for Burritos (8 Count)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup Old El Paso™ enchilada sauce (from 10-oz can)
  • 1 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend (4 oz)
  • Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, mix chicken, roasted peppers and sour cream.
  • 2
    Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. To prepare each quesadilla, brush one side of tortilla with some of the oil. Place tortilla, oiled side down, in skillet. Brush 1 tablespoon enchilada sauce over entire tortilla. Top half of tortilla with 2 tablespoons cheese, 1/4 cup chicken mixture and 2 tablespoons more cheese. Fold other half of tortilla over filling, pressing down slightly.
  • 3
    Cook 2 to 3 minutes, turning once, until tortilla is golden brown and cheese is melted. Repeat to make remaining quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges. Serve with salsa.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You can use 2 cups chopped cooked chicken or turkey for the packaged seasoned chicken breast strips. Your quesadillas just won't have quite the same flavors.
