Chicken Fajita Quesadillas are a cheesy spin on a classic. Full of fajita veggies, tender chicken and lots of cheese these are perfect any night!
Chicken Fajita Quesadillas are the easy to whip up dinner that your whole family will love!!
I honestly think I could eat mexican food everyday, it is my favorite!
And I love making these Chicken Fajita Quesadillas. They are quick, cheesy, filling and crowd pleasing!
You could easily cut these smaller and serve as appetizers but I like to cut them in wedges and serve with a little sour cream, some pintos and rice and it is an amazing dinner!
Now if I didn’t have the picky eater to please I would throw in a can of corn and black beans but that might cause a riot in my house, so I leave them out.
These quesadillas are the perfect mix of caramelized onions and peppers, taco seasoned grilled chicken and a melty mix of colby and pepperjack cheese that adds just the perfect hint of spice.
These are certainly kid friendly, my picky eaters love them but if your kids don’t go for the peppers and onions you can make theirs with just the chicken and cheese, however, these quesadillas are the perfect vehicle for sneaking some veggies into your kids. You could easily hide some broccoli in there ;)
No one can turn down this magical combination of caramelized veggies, melty cheese, perfectly spiced chicken and crunchy tortilla, serve some sour cream, salsa or guac for dipping and your kids will be asking for this every week!
What other kind of chicken can I use?
My favorite part about this recipe is you can use any kind of chicken! Grilled, baked, sautéed, leftover chicken from the other night, a rotisserie chicken you picked up on the way home, it all works great!
What other proteins can I use?
You can use steak or shrimp, leftover shredded pork or even make them with black beans or refried beans for a meatless option.
Make these this week I promise you will love them!!
