Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas

Quesadillas are one of the foods I usually order when I go to a restaurant. I just love them. Any which way you make them, I just love a good quesadilla. But I love the flavors of buffalo chicken so I decided to make a buffalo chicken quesadilla.

Traditionally buffalo style sauce is a vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce and butter and the buffalo style chicken is usually served with a blue cheese dressing. But I don’t make my buffalo sauce anymore. I use Frank’s buffalo wing sauce and it’s amazing, it saves time and money.

The way I cooked the chicken, is I just cut it in small pieces and poured the buffalo sauce over it. In a skillet I heated some olive oil and added the chicken and cooked it till it was done, and no longer pink. It will not brown, but it will be a nice redish color from the buffalo wing sauce, so you will want to check it to make sure it’s cooked properly.

Now since it is a buffalo chicken quesadilla and I really love the flavor of the blue cheese, I added some blue cheese to the cheese mixture along with a Mexican blend of cheeses. And that’s all there is to it. I grilled them on a panini press but you can use a skillet as well, serve them hot with sour cream, some extra buffalo sauce and that’s all she wrote.
