It’s Cinco de Mayo! It’s the perfect day for me to bring you this new recipe! I am so thankful this Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla Pie has come into my life. It doesn’t require a lot of work or fancy ingredients. You can throw it together in minutes and customize it to your tastes.

Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla Pie

This week while doing my grocery shopping, I came across something amazing, something inventive, something that changes everything (being dramatic, I love food). Maybe I am really behind on this (okay I probably am) BUT I found tomato and basil flavored flour tortillas! Yes! Did you know about this? Why have I never tried these before? Oh my word! I love these and only have two left, so I am about to panic. These will take your quesadilla game or anything tortilla game to a whole new level. The crust of this pie was supposed to be a regular flour tortilla but that wasn’t happening after I found these. It really added a whole nother level of flavor.

Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla Pie

This quesadilla pie is so creamy and full of flavor. For my filling I used shredded chicken, cilantro, cheddar cheese, and chopped jalapenos. The jalapeno added a nice smokiness but not to much heat. I was hoping I had a can of green chilies in the pantry but no such luck. Those would have been amazing in this pie.

This makes a great weeknight meal because it takes 30 minutes start to finish and it’s something the whole family will love. So give this one a try. I know it won’t let you down.
