Probably one of the easiest recipes on our blog, but seriously so delicious! I don't know about you but quesadillas are the quick go-to in my house when my family wants something tasty, crunchy and cheesy. For this recipe, you'll need to grill up some chicken with some Chile Margarita spice rub ahead of time and dice it up. I like using boneless, skinless chicken thighs because they stay juicer when you cook it the second time in the quesadilla. But, you could always use chicken breasts if that's how you roll.
I like to drizzle a little sriracha on my quesadillas but these would be equally epic with a side of sour cream and guacamole.
