This Easy Chicken Green Chili Quesadilla recipe is perfect anytime for a quick lunch, dinner or appetizer!
If you have leftover chicken or use rotisserie chicken, this meal comes together in about 10 minutes. It is perfect on it’s own served with a little salsa, or with a hot bowl of soup.
I love to serve this with fresh avocado or a small salad too!
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. Clean up is minimal because I make it all in one pan.
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.
It is great for a weeknight recipe idea.
You can mix up the meat and use leftover beef or pork in place of the chicken.
