Chicken Fajita Quesadillas are made with onions, poblano peppers, and mixed cheeses. The poblano pepper is mild and adds a great flavor to the quesadillas!

This recipe is fun to eat as either an appetizer or a meal. This recipe calls for large tortillas so these will be big enough to be considered a meal.
I used to order these all of the time at one of my favorite Mexican Food Restaurants, On the Border.
What I liked the most about their quesadillas is the green Poblano peppers inside. The peppers are not spicy whatsoever, which I liked. They just add a nice subtle flavor to the quesadillas. So let's get into it so I can show you how it's done!

- Sour cream
- Poblano pepper

- Seasoned salt
Steps to make the recipe:
Saute' your chicken and veggies in cooking spray. Spread butter on one side of your tortilla and sour cream on the other side. (This can get a little tricky).
On the sour cream side, layer your chicken, cheese, onions, and peppers. Place the second tortilla on top.
Spray your skillet with cooking oil and cook until the tortilla starts to become crispy. Flip and repeat!
Remove the quesadilla from the skillet and allow to cool for a few minutes before cutting as desired.
The Poblano pepper is from Mexico, but can be ound is most local stores so it was not hard to find. I found the pepper at my local Walmart.
The same placed I ended up finding the chicken for this recipe. The chicken is modestly seasoned so you can really control your flavors. I really love the convenience of pre-cooked chicken. A real time saver.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Only add just enough oil/cooking spray to your pan.
Store them in an airtight container in the refridgerator.
They can be reheated in the microwave, oven or skillet. When reheating in a skillet or the oven, I don't recommend adding any oil or cooking spray.
