These chicken quesadillas have chicken, cheese, and onions. So many different quesadillas can be made by swapping out ingredients. The main ingredients include meat and cheese. Then you add extras like onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, and/or peppers.

What goes with chicken quesadillas?

Rice, refried beans, bean salad, quacamole, or tortilla soup are some ideas for you to try as side dishes to chicken quesadillas.

What’s the best cheese to use for quesadillas?

I used shredded cheddar jack cheese in the chicken quesadillas. However, here a few more ideas….

  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Mexican blend shredded cheese (good choice)
  • Oaxaca (melts very easily)
