Improved Quesadillas!

Back in January, I posted Easy Dinner Recipes, which included a recipe for Easy Quesadillas. I'll admit, that they're easy and they're good, but kind of bland. My father-in-law called me a couple of months ago and suggested using my indoor grill to make quesadillas. Around the same time, I found a recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning, which tastes much better than the store-bought stuff. I made chicken quesadillas using the Homemade Taco Seasoning and my indoor gill; what an improvement!!

  • 1 lb. cooked, boneless, skinless chicken; shredded
  • Taco seasoning (homemade or store bought)
  • About 1 cup (or so) shredded cheddar cheese (or a Mexican blend)
  • 5 large flour tortillas
  • Indoor grill
  • Garnishments: sour cream and/or taco sauce


Step 1: in a pan, add chicken and taco seasoning and cook according to package directions.

Please excuse my pics, I used my phone again, ARGH!

Then on half of a flour tortilla, add meat and desired amount of cheese:

Fold over, cook on preheated indoor grill for 5 minutes:

Then, using a pizza slicer, cut each into halves or thirds:

Serve with desired toppings and enjoy!!

You could always cook up the meat and keep the ingredients in the fridge and have them handy for a quick lunch. You may want to preheat the meat in the microwave, or cook them on the grill for a couple of minutes longer.


  1. Glad you liked the taco seasoning, it is one of my favorite recipes.

  2. It is way better than store bought... I will never buy taco seasoning again!
