Total Time9 mins
- 2 flour tortillas (8-inch)
- 2 cups chopped Mexican spiced chicken
- 3 tablepsoons ranch dressing
- 3/4 cup grated pepper jack cheese, could use monterey jack
- 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup pico de gallo (homemade or store bought), refer notes
Toss chicken and ranch dressing in a bowl.
Divide the filling between the tortillas, covering half the surface. Divide both cheeses evenly over the filling. Fold in half and press down.
Heat a medium non-stick over medium-high heat and spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Gently transfer one quesadilla onto the hot skillet. Cook until golden brown on both sides (about 2-3 minutes). Remove from pan and place on a wire rack.
Repeat process with remaining quesadilla. If not serving immediately, let quesadillas cool on a wire rack (this will prevent it from getting soggy) and pack into lunch boxes. Serve with pico de gallo.
