Chicken and Avocado Quesadillas

Chicken and Avocado Quesadillas
National Grilled Cheese Month is coming to an end and Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and I thought it was fitting to celebrate them both with a Mexican style grilled cheese, aka a quesadilla! Chicken, avocado and salsa verde is a fabulous flavour combination and it is so good in quesadilla form, all sandwiched between two crispy tortillas along with a ton of melted cheese! Yum! When I made the skillet chicken verde last week, I made a double batch to ensure leftovers to make these chicken and avocado quesadillas! I like to make quesadillas in a skillet, just like a grilled cheese sandwich, where I place a tortilla in the warmed skillet, sprinkle on the cheese, chicken, avocado, salsa verde, even more cheese and top with another tortilla and grill it until the tortillas are crispy, toasty and golden brown and the cheese is all nice and ooey and gooey and good! These chicken and avocado quesadillas take less than 20 minutes to make and they will disappear in a heartbeat!

Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 15 minutes Servings: 2

Quick, easy and tasty chicken and avocado quesadilladas!


ingredients
  • 2 (8 inch) tortillas (corn tortillas for gluten-free)
  • 1/2 cup montery jack cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup cooked chicken, sliced or shredded
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 cup salsa verde
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
directions
  1. Heat a pan over medium heat, place one tortilla in the pan, sprinkle half of the cheese followed by the chicken, avocado, salsa verde, cilnatro, the remaining cheese and remaining tortilla.
  2. Cook until the quesadilla is golden brown on both sides and the cheese is melted, about 2-4 minutes per side.

Option: Use your favourite cheese such as cheddar, mozzarella, gruyere, etc.
Option: Use leftover skillet chicken verde, taco lime grilled chicken, tequila lime grilled chicken, cilantro lime grilled chicken, etc.
Option: Use your favourite salsa!
Option: Top with extra salsa, sour cream, cheese, etc!
Option: For a single serving, cut the ingredients by half and instead of sprinkling the filling over the entire tortilla, sprinkle it over half and then fold the empty half of the tortilla over the filling on the other side!
Tip: To easily flip the tortilla, place a large plate onto the tortilla in the pan, hold the plate, flip the skillet so that the tortilla is now on the plate and then slide the tortilla back into the skillet (the uncooked side will now be on the bottom)!
