Whether you've got friends coming over to watch a game, or you're just looking for an easy lunch or snack, these Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas are a real winner. Buffalo chicken makes for a tasty addition inside these cheesy quesadillas, and the celery adds a nice a crunch!

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 cup chopped frozen buffalo chicken strips, cooked according to package directions, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery, divided
  • 2 (10-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Blue cheese dressing (optional)

What to Do

  1. Sprinkle 3/4 cup of cheese, 1/2 cup of chicken, and 1/4 cup of celery evenly over one half of one tortilla. Repeat with remaining tortilla.
  2. In a large skillet or griddle over medium heat, melt butter.
  3. Place one tortilla, toppings side up, on skillet and cook 30 seconds, or until cheese begins to melt. Using a spatula, fold the tortilla over in half and cook 1 to 2 more minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted. Flip and cook an additional 30 seconds, or until both sides are golden brown. Repeat with remaining tortilla.
  4. Slice each tortilla into four wedges and serve with blue cheese dressing, if desired.

When I made this, I did use some shredded Mexican cheese. I had mozzarella on hand, but wanted to reserve that for pizza I was intending to make later. I had some of the Buffalo strips, but they were a bit bland so I did add some additional Buffalo sauce along with the chopped celery. Even though I love jalapenos, I didn't include those this time around, preferring to just experience the Buffalo flavor by itself. Next time, I'll probably opt for regular chicken strips and try using pepper cheese as well as some sliced jalapenos on it.

This is a very good recipe to make for lunch or even a late night snack. I didn't have any of the pre seasoned chicken strips, so I just used shredded leftover roast chicken and added a little bit of wing sauce, which is basically about 1/8 little cayenne pepper sauce mixed with a tbsp. of melted butter. I left the celery out of it and substituted some finely diced poblano pepper for an extra kick, and it was very flavorful. I think next time I might use either a Mexican blend cheese or even some pepper jack.

Where is the Buffalo Chicken hot sauce in this?

Hello! The frozen Buffalo chicken strips are already coated/cooked in Buffalo sauce, so we don't add any additional sauce. However, if you'd like a little more Buffalo sauce flavor you can add some or even include it as a dipping sauce! Enjoy. :)

such a great twist on buffalo chicken - added some diced jalapenos and they were gobbled up fast!

I'd love to try making these for lunch!
