Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas loaded with rotisserie chicken, buffalo sauce, ranch, and lots of cheese. These DELICIOUS extra crispy quesadillas are SO easy to make and are ready in just 15 minutes!We’ve all had those days when coming home from work or school, and the only thing you want to do is throw yourself on the sofa and relax. Then it’s either the hunger kicks in or in my case, your spouse or kid starts complaining about being hungry. This is when this recipe comes in handy. It’s super simple and easy to make and can be prepared ahead of time.
The whole family loves quesadillas because they are so freaking amazing!! I love adding a lot of cheese and kicking it off with a plain and simple sour cream dip to balance out the savory flavor.
It’s times like this that I appreciate having lived in Sunset Park Brooklyn because I was exposed to the wonderful Mexican cuisine. For those of you that aren’t from NY, Sunset Park is basically like “little Mexico” in the heart of Brooklyn. It’s about 30 blocks wide and runs along 5th ave. It’s filled with tons of authentic Mexican restaurants and taco spots. I remember my first week there I tried over 10 taco places out of the excitement!
