Tips and Tricks

Assembling the Quesadilla

To prevent the quesadilla from becoming too soggy, pat the cooked chicken dry with a paper towel before adding it to the tortilla. This removes excess moisture.

Cooking the Quesadilla

If using a skillet, cook the quesadilla over medium heat. Press it gently with a spatula to ensure the cheese melts evenly and the tortillas get crispy.

Melting the Cheese

Cover the skillet with a lid for a minute or two while cooking. This helps the cheese melt faster without burning the tortillas.

Preparing the Salad

To keep the salad crisp, add the salt and lime juice just before serving. This prevents the greens and vegetables from wilting.

Customizing Heat

Adjust the amount of jalapeno peppers to your heat preference. You can also remove the seeds from the jalapenos to reduce the spiciness if desired.

Serving Suggestions

Serve the quesadilla wedges hot for the best texture and flavor. Pair with a light, fresh salad to balance the meal and add a variety of textures.

Adding Extra Flavor

Add a sprinkle of fresh cilantro or a dollop of Greek yogurt on top of the quesadilla wedges for an extra burst of flavor and freshness.
