Quesadillas - BBQ Chicken ala Recipe Roundup

Pin It Now!

My favorite lunch/snack or a very easy appetizer party food!

And a great use for one of my beloved Rotisserie Chickens.

Today's blogger you have met once before, way back in mid August, I mad a "Sausage Spaghetti Pie ala Recipe Roundup" that I thought was AMAZING!  Tricia of the Recipe roundup blog is a terrific read.  Real food for her real family is what she posts.  Currently she is participating in a 100 days to Christmas Countdown.  Not just recipes, but DIY crafty ideas.  Always a great read!
Also currently (well, for a couple of more days anyway, until the 30th), Tricia is hosting a wonderful fun giveaway.  A metal and fabric folding basket/tote.  Perfect to slip under your car seat for those quick trips to the store.  Be stylish and be green.  No more plastic bags!

Just click the image of the tote to the left and you will find the blog post of her giveaway!

But today, for me, it's a quickie simple lunch/snack.  Here's you a hint about quesadillas... If you have to shop for them, you are thinking too hard.  This dish is made for leftovers.  Whatever you got, add a little cheese, and you have it!

Me, I used...

1 cup shredded Chicken
1/2 cup diced Onion
2 TBS BBQ sauce
2 TBS Salsa
2 TBS chopped Cilantro
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 Corn Tortillas
and a little oil for heating the tortillas

Could not be easier... Frying pan over medium heat, just a tiny bit of oil and heat.  Add a tortilla, heat until just starts to brown
  • remove and heat the second tortilla
  • On the freshly heated side of one of the tortillas, spread the ingredients evenly around.  Put the hot side of the second tortilla on top of the ingredients.  return to the frying pan and heta until it starts to brown and the inside is melting.
  • Flip and heat the final remaining side of the tortilla cut into wedges and you are done!
  • Serve plain, with a dab of sour cream, more salsa, avocado... Whatever you got!

Thanks again Tricia, terrific ideas, recipe and I still LOVE your blog!


This recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Uses For a Rotisserie Chicken"  (Now close to 100!)...I am so confused... $5.49 for a fully cooked, fully seasoned Oven Roasted, Rotisserie Chicken. Yet shop in the raw meat department and most raw chickens are at best $8 each and usually far closer to $10. Anyone have an answer??? Me either. So, I can either rail against the machine, or learn to embrace the beauty that is the $5 chicken! In this pin are recipes I have made, and recommend. MORE than 52 (I just can't stop)..
You get the idea.  From Scratch Pizza to Chinese Take Out recipes, Lots of Soups and Chili... Appetizers to Main Courses (Still can't find a dessert, but I am looking).  More than enough ideas for that store nought bird to shine with just a little extra work
