Ingredients for Quesadillas
All you need for this recipe is tortillas, 1 package of KRAFT Cheddar & Asadero Cheese, shredded rotisserie chicken, canned pinto beans, frozen corn, chopped tomatoes, green onions, KNUDSEN sour cream, and KRAFT Chipotle Aioli. All of these ingredients are super easy to find and simple to keep on hand for when you’re ready to prep dinner!
How to Make a Quesadilla
To make the quesadillas, place 6 tortillas around the sides of a rectangle sheet-pan, with edges overlapping and the outer edges extending over the sides of the pan. Cover the opening in the center of the pan with 1 of the remaining tortillas. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the tortillas and top with chicken, beans, corn, tomatoes, and green onions.
Making a Sheet-Pan Quesadilla
Top the filling with the rest of the cheese, and then place the remaining tortillas on top of the filling. Fold the edges of the tortillas over to cover the filling, and then use another baking sheet to press on top of the quesadilla to flatten it gently. Bake your quesadilla at 425 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes until everything is heated through and the cheese is melted. Remove it from the heat, let it cool slightly, and then serve this up with sour cream and chipotle aioli!
