The Best Quesadillas Ever: Grilled and Stuffed with Roasted Red Pepper, Spinach, and Chicken
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming! You may have heard that we recently moved to our own place in Brooklyn, and the cherry on top of this new place is the massive (relatively speaking, that is) amount of outdoor space we now have. That means we can grill, and that we'll be sharing our grilling secrets with you.
The first one we're going to share is one of our favorites - grilled quesadillas. Usually you don't see quesadillas that are grilled, but let me tell you, the result is excellent. It's crispy without being oily, and you can get them to be almost charred, which gives them a nice deep flavor.
These grilled quesadillas are filled with grilled chicken, roasted red pepper, and spinach, as well as some Monterey jack cheese. The flavor combination here is tremendous. The roasted red pepper are nice and sweet, which goes perfectly with the earthy spinach. The melty cheese brings it all together and the tasty, spicy chicken gives it a nice kick. So this weekend, throw these easy to make quesadillas onto your grill and enjoy!
Making the Dish
3 large flour tortillas
3 cups shredded monteray jack cheese
2 chicken breasts, butterflied
1 bag spinach
1 red pepper
1 tbsp cajun seasoning
1 tbsp olive oil
Prior to cooking anything, take the chicken out and butterfly it so that it can lay flat. Rub with the cajun seasoning, and then let rest until it comes to room temperature.
