Easy Peasy Cheat Chicken Quesadillas

by Denielle B

There are some nights when I’m too tired to make anything fancy or elaborate for dinner, but I always have a few things on hand I can rely on so I can still quickly make something delicious. Quesadillas are a great way to have a quick, no-fuss meal. Why do I call this cheat? I used pre-cooked and pre-shredded chicken breast! Definite timesaver!

  • 2 cups of pre-cooked, pre-shredded chicken (1/2 cup for each tortilla)
  • 2 tbsp Siete Spicy Taco Seasoning
  • 4 medium-sized flour tortillas
  • 2 cups of shredded Mexican-blend cheese
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • sour cream
  • salsa
  • avocado


  1. Mix the taco seasoning with about 1/4 cup of water. I use the Siete Spicy Taco Seasoning, but you can use whatever brand your prefer.
  2. Put the chicken in a small pan and add the taco seasoning mixture to it. Cook only until the water from the seasoning has reduced since the chicken is already cooked. Set aside.
  3. Wipe the same pan clean. Then, heat up a flour tortilla on medium heat. Add about 1/4 cup of shredded cheese on top of it.
  4. Once the bottom layer of cheese is slightly melted, add about 1/2 cup of the shredded chicken, 1/2 cup of spinach. Top with 1/4 cup of shredded cheese.
  5. Keep on the pan until the top layer of cheese is slightly melted, then top with another tortilla. Flip the assembled quesadilla to warm up the tortilla you just added.
  6. Repeat steps #3-5. Serve with sour cream, avocado, salsa, and whatever else you want!
