How To Make A Quesadilla

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time20 mins
Course: Breakfast or any meal for that matter
Cuisine: American
Keyword: quesadilla
Servings: 2


  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin; split
  • 1/2 onion sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 2 large flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese* split (plus more cheese if desired)
  • rotisserie chicken chopped
  • salsa
  • guacamole
  • sour cream


  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large non-stick saut√© pan or skillet over medium-high heat for about a minute to two. Add the onions and bell peppers and cook until softened and slightly browned. The longer you let them cook, they will start to caramelize a little. Alternatively, you can grill your vegetables on the grill in a grill pan over medium high heat. Remove vegetables from the pan and onto a plate. Wipe out your pan.
  • Since I like to use large flour tortillas, I cook my quesadillas one at a time. Heat your pan to medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to your pan and after a minute, lay in your tortilla. On one side, top with the shredded mozzarella cheese, some rotisserie chicken and some of your cooked vegetables.
  • Close the tortilla in half and let cook until golden brown, for about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook the other side until golden. Repeat with other the quesadilla. Serve warm with salsa, guacamole and sour cream if desired. Enjoy!


For any quesadilla, I always like to add the cheese first and then layer in my fillings. So, if you'd like to add scrambled eggs and cooked bacon, do so after adding the cheese and then close your tortilla and cook. 
*feel free to use a blend of mozzarella and cheddar if desired.
