Zesty Chicken Ranch Quesadillas
Directions
START WITH
1
In a bowl, mix the chopped Mexican-spiced chicken and ranch dressing.
2
Divide the chicken mixture evenly between the two flour tortillas, covering half the surface of each tortilla.
3
Sprinkle both pepper jack and cheddar cheese evenly over the chicken mixture on each tortilla.
4
Fold each tortilla in half and press down gently.
5
Heat a medium non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and lightly spray it with non-stick cooking spray.
6
Carefully place one quesadilla onto the hot skillet and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side. Repeat this process with the remaining quesadilla.
7
Transfer the cooked quesadillas to a wire rack to cool slightly. If not serving immediately, let them fully cool on the wire rack to avoid sogginess.
8
Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges and serve with pico de gallo on the side.
MEAL PREP
9
Let the cooked quesadillas cool completely on a wire rack. Slice into wedges and pack into meal prep containers. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
10
To reheat, place a cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium heat and cook the quesadilla on both sides until the crust is crispy and the filling is heated through. Alternatively, microwave each quesadilla at 30-second intervals until heated through.
