BBQ Chicken Quesadilla

There’s nothing better than a warm quesadilla filled with melted cheese and savory deliciousness!

A quesadilla is a Mexican delicacy that is essentially a warm tortilla with melted cheese inside along with other mouth watering ingredients like chicken, pork or beef.

I’ve taken this recipe and made it over to pump up the protein and decrease the fat without compromising the flavor!!

There’s also no better combo than the sweet flavor of BBQ with ranch, black beans and sweet corn, am I right?

A wedge of Laughing Cow Light and shredded reduced fat cheese ties it all together for a taste that your family will love!

With the super bowl approaching, this is an appetizer that I typically make for my guests and they keep coming back for more!

You can use any chopped grilled chicken in the recipe or use a portion of my Zesty Crock Pot Shredded Chicken.

Enjoy!
