Quesadillas are a delicious option for lunch or dinner. They’re quick, easy, and absolutely satisfying with their crispy shell and ooey-gooey melted cheese center. These buffalo chicken quesadillas are a yummy take on the classic. Packed with chicken, cheese, hot sauce, ranch dressing, and scallions, these quesadillas are the perfect quick meal option.

This buffalo chicken quesadilla recipe serves two, but you can easily double the quantities to serve more. They’re ready in just 15-minutes! Much like the flavors in my Slow-Cooker Buffalo Chicken, these quesadillas have just enough Frank’s RedHot Sauce for an ideal (and addictive) heat.

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • 10-inch Flour Tortillas – These are burrito-sized tortillas.
  • Cheese – This recipe calls for two types of shredded cheese: cheddar and provolone. Or you can substitute the two varieties for the Mexican cheese blend.
  • Shredded, Cooked Chicken (rotisserie or homemade)
  • Frank’s RedHot Sauce – This is my personal go-to hot sauce. It is perfect for buffalo-style recipes such as this one. Wing sauce is a great substitute.
  • Ranch Dressing
  • Scallions – If you do not have scallions on hand, use minced white or red onion instead.
  • Fresh Cilantro (optional)
  • Avocado Oil – Or your favorite neutral-flavored oil, like canola.
  • Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt – For service.

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas

Combine all of the ingredients {except the tortillas and oil} in a large bowl.

Divide the mixture between the two tortillas and spread over one half of each tortilla. Fold the opposite side {of each tortilla} over and gently press down.

Heat the avocado oil in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Cook until each side is golden brown and the cheese has melted.

Recipe Tips

Use kitchen shears to cut the quesadillas into slices. They make the slicing process a breeze!

For service, stir a teaspoon of ranch dressing into sour cream or Greek yogurt. Dip each quesadilla slice into this delicious concoction.

Frequently Asked Questions

    Is the ranch dressing, the powdered kind in an envelope or the ranch dressing in a bottle?

    This gets a 5 star for sure. What a great snack for when the kids come in from school or ball practice or anything. It was so easy to prepare and I made sure I had some extra chicken left over for tomorrow's lunch. I will be making this over and over. Thanks for the recipe.
