Kid Recipe Alert: Chicken Quesadillas

I’m not Latino, but this is good …

Just ask my 5 year old, who begs to make these at least once a week now! She even said they were better than Chipotle’s quesadillas and I think she’s right. #winning

However, these literally take about 10 to 15 minutes to make, depending on how many you need, and that’s why I love this recipe! It’s quick, and so easy, I literally made us two each, last night for a quick snack before bedtime. My parents are even hooked on this stuff, and they never eat anything other than the Caribbean food my mom makes.

So without further ado, I present to you … the easiest chicken quesadilla recipe you’ll ever find, so easy that my 5 year old makes it without touching the stove of course, I do that part, lol, that everyone will love, including yo mama …

Kid's Chicken Quesadillas
  1. Heat non-sticking pan on stove, for at least two minutes, or until hot.
  2. On a dry plate, place one tortilla upside down, and then sprinkle your desired amount of cheese on half of the tortilla.
  3. Place a few pieces of chicken on top of the cheese, then sprinkle a bit more cheese on top.
  4. Close tortilla, by folding in half, and place in pan.
  5. Using the bottom of a small, clean pot, press down on the tortilla for a few seconds so the cheese can melt.
  6. Flip the tortilla over, and repeat step 5, until tortilla is light brown and cheese is melted.
  7. Repeat steps 2-6, until all tortillas are complete.
