     With a few simple shortcut ingredients, you can have warm and cheesy homemade quesadillas on the dinner table in less than half an hour.  If you need to master the basic steps of how to make chicken quesadillas, this is the place to start!
 

Super Easy Chicken Quesadillas

 12 flour tortillas
3 c. shredded chicken
1 c. salsa  
1/2 box of Velveeta cheese or other similar cheese

    I know it is just a few ingredients and may not sound like it would be super delicious but they are.  The absolute best part is dipping the quesadilla into the salsa con queso.  Yum!!! 

    Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

    Melt your Velveeta in a crock pot, double boiler or microwave.  I just used my crock pot.

    Once it is melted, stir in the salsa.  You can add more or less salsa depending on your preference.

     I like to boil my chicken and then shred it but any shredded chicken will work.  Now, in a large bowl, mix together your shredded chicken and about 2-3 cups of the salsa con queso. You don't want an abundance of the salsa con queso, just enough to just coat your chicken.

     Spoon some of the chicken mixture into the middle of the tortilla and fold over in half.

     Place each of the quesadillas onto a baking sheet and bake for about 9-11 minutes or until they are golden brown.  Remove and cut in half so that they are now wedges.

    Be sure to get you a bowl of the salsa con queso you made up and dip the quesadillas into it as you eat it.  So good this way.
