Chicken Quesadillas

       I bought crushed red pepper recently for a pasta dish and I noticed that on the back of the bottle it had a delicious sounding recipe for chicken quesadillas.  I was NOT disappointed!  I couldn't stop raving about these quesadillas all through dinner, and I still think about them regularly.  My husband is lucky I have to cook something different every night otherwise I would be tempted to have these every week! Anyway, enough talking it up, I might get your hopes too high!  It's still a quesadilla guys.  [The best one you'll ever eat though!] 

Chicken Quesadilla Recipe
2 c. cooked chicken, cubed or shredded
2 c. cheddar cheese
1 c. chopped tomato
1/4 c. chopped green onions
1/2 tsp. Crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp. allspice (I think I used season all, same thing??) 
1/2 tsp. thyme [this is key!]

1.  Spread each ingredient evenly on 4 (8 in.) tortillas.  Top each with another tortilla.  Lightly brush with oil.  Sprinkle with paprika (or sprinkle it on the inside, I think that's what I did). 
2.  Bake in 350 degree oven 10 minutes or until cheese melts. 

Here's another view of the inside: 

Now go make some quesadillas!!  They are so fast and did I mention delicious?!


  1. I think allspice is more like cloves or cinnamon--somewhat misleading when you think (like I did) that it must be lots of spices mixed together. oops. But those quesadillas look so tasty! I have a few recipes I should send your way as they are fast, easy, really tasty and very healthy. Keep up the good work!

  2. Please do! I have loved each recipe I've gotten from you before, so you are welcome to continue sharing! :)

  3. A yummy delicious recipe.I should definitely try this.
