“I always make extra grilled chicken to be used in recipes like this a day or two later. The family really likes when I serve these. I do think the better the grilled chicken, the better the quesadilla. I usually make mine with Mirj's Grilled Moroccan Chicken (that chicken is so versatile!) I'm very much into the habit of throwing this together so all measurements are approximate. Do more or less of anything that suits you better.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute green peppers and onions in vegetable oil until softened.
  2. Combine cooked peppers and onion with beans, corn, cheeses, and seasoning.
  3. Spread some mixture over one half of a tortilla. Fold tortilla over to form a half moon and press around the edges.
  4. Lightly spray or brush a skillet with vegetable oil.
  5. Grill the quesadilla on medium to medium high heat. Each side takes about 3 minutes.
  6. Do the same for the reaming mixture and tortillas.
  7. It's easiest to use a pizza cutter to cut them into wedges.
  8. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
