Barbecue Chicken Quesadillas

by Laura

They have bbq chicken pizza, so why not a barbecue chicken quesadillas! A while back, I had some family over for dinner and I made slow cooker barbecue chicken. I ended up having some left overs after our gathering. I never mind having leftovers, and this leftover chicken went into my freezer.

The other day I was ready to use my leftover bbq chicken in the freezer and decided to use that chicken to make these bbq chicken quesadillas. Now if you want to can just cook up come chicken and add bbq sauce to it. Or feel free to buy a rotisserie chicken and tear it up then add bbq sauce to it. However, this recipe for slow cooker barbecue chicken that I linked to below is delish!

I added cheddar cheese and red onion in them. However, the red onion is also fine to swap with green onion. The quesadillas were excellent and the whole family loved them, even my picky daughter ate them up.


Here is what you need to make the

  • BUTTER
  • FLOUR TORTILLAS
  • CHEDDAR CHEESE (OR WHATEVER CHEESE YOU LIKE)
  • RED ONION (CAN USE GREEN ONION IN IT’S PLACE)

Black Bean and Pineapple Salsa | Real Mom Kitchen August 22, 2014 - 6:15 am

[…] The recipe is very similar to a recipe that I have posted before called Black Bean and Corn Salsa which is also known as Cowboy Caviar.  I gave this salsa about an hour to sit in the fridge and it was delicious.  However, most of the time these kind of salsas only get better the longer you can let them sit and let the flavors marinade.  The pineapple added a nice element of sweetness.  I found it similar in flavor to a mango salsa i have had in Mexican restaurants.  Yummy and easy – who could ask for anything more?  This is a fun side to any Mexican dish.  I served it with Barbecue Chicken Quesadillas.

We do the same thing except we add corn and black beans too. It’s such an easy but tasty twist to regular quesadillas, I love it!
