Hi Friends! This quick Chicken Green Chili Quesadilla is one of the easiest recipes to put together. Perfect on its own for a weeknight dinner idea, and is a great way to use up leftovers too.

You can make these in about 5 minutes if you have some cooked chicken on hand. You can also use cooked ground beef. Clean up is minimal because I make it all in one pan. You can also make this in your microwave oven. 

How to make a quick Chicken Green Chili Quesadilla

I used mini flour tortillas, but you can use corn tortillas if you prefer. The result is cheesy goodness.

For a quick snack, I serve it with some salsa and avocado or with a hot soup. These quesadillas only have a few ingredients.

flour tortillas – You can use corn tortillas if you want, but flour tortillas are more meal-sized. 

cooked chicken – Use rotisserie chicken on those busy nights and this will be a 10-minute meal. 

chopped green chilis – Use a canned version for this. I stock up on these when they are on sale. 

Monterey Jack cheese – Monterey jack is a nice mild cheese that always goes great with green chilies.
