This Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas recipe combines the classic flavors of buffalo chicken with gooey melted cheese and crispy tortillas.

A quesadilla is a Mexican dish consisting of a tortilla filled primarily with cheese, and sometimes meats, beans, and spices, then cooked on a griddle.

Traditionally, a corn tortilla is used, but it can also be made with a flour tortilla, particularly in northern Mexico and the United States. You can read more about it here Quesadilla – Wikipedia.

Instead of the Monterey Jack Cheese, try some Mozzarella or some White Cheddar. Whatever cheese you choose, make sure it melts well!

Just like its cousin Buffalo Blue Cheese Chicken Sliders, these Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas can be served with ranch dressing, sour cream or even more Buffalo Wing Sauce but I prefer my Blue Cheese Dressing for this delicious quesadillas.

I like to use 2 tortillas when making quesadillas. You can make a quesadilla with just 1 tortilla by putting the filling on top and folding it in half like a half-moon.
