How To Make Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas…

Add another 1 oz of cheese and carefully fold in half
Heat butter in skillet until melted
Carefully add quesadillas to skillet, one at a time if needed, and cook 2-3 minutes until browned on one side
Flip and repeat
Let cool slightly before cutting in half
Flour tortillas work best for quesadillas. You could also use gluten-free tortillas, so long as they are soft and pliable.
I prefer shredding my own cheese from the block as it melts much better than already shredded cheese from a bag.
Ranch or Blue Cheese make the best dipping sauces for Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas.
If you like blue cheese, you could also add a few crumbles in the with shredded cheddar.
Adding finely chopped celery to the chicken will give your quesadillas some added flare.
