Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas Recipe

Publisher Photo
My quesadillas are filling enough to serve as a meal and versatile to win big points as a snack while the big game is on. Feel free to sub in your favorite flavored tortillas. Or kick up the spice factor with pepper jack cheese instead of the Mexican blend. —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, CO

For a fun twist with extra blue cheese flavor, try using blue cheese stuffed olives!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 14, 2013

Oh so good...my family loved this recipe; however, we are not big fans of blue cheese so I used ranch dressing to dip. But truthfully did not even need it. One thing...my quesadillas did not brown in the oven so they did not look as perfect as the picture, my family did not seem to care.
