Chicken Fajita Quesadilla Recipe

Most Friday nights of my high school years ended at Taco Bell. It was the hang out after football and basketball games. But, now, the adult Coop’s digestive system is not a friend of the Bell. Whatever that “meat” is made of, does NOT agree with me anymore. Those Chicken Quesadillas were my favorite thing to order. It was just some about that Jalapeno sauce that I loved. So, of course I tried to come up with my own jacked up Chicken Fajita Quesadilla recipe for you guys. 

Let’s talk Taco seasoning. I make my own. You can find the recipe here: I like to season my chicken breast and rub it in good. 

Onions and peppers add so much flavor. The sweetness of the red bell peppers is something special.

Monterrey Jack and Cheddar or Colby Jack cheeses are my favorite to use in quesadillas. Mexican blend is fine, but always shred your own cheese. The bagged stuff never melts right. 

As for the sauce, it’s creamy with just the right kick of spice. It may not be a direct replica of the Taco Bell condiment, but I actually prefer it more!

Happy Cooking,
