Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas with Dip Sauce

Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas with Dip Sauce

These tasty chicken quesadillas include the flavors of olives, cheese, tomato, Cajun seasoning and chicken. Unlike rolled quesadillas, these are made by having one tortilla spread with the filling, the other tortilla topping it and then the whole thing is flipped over and browned gently.

Easy Chicken quesadilla recipe

When it is time to flip the quesadilla , you need to flip the whole thing over, which is where a very wide spatula comes in very handy.

If you do not have one (or preferably two!) then you can flip the quesadilla on to a plate and then on to another plate.

Slide it back into the pan from the second plate.

It is rather like tossing a pancake - some people find it easy and others wonder why it is still sticking to the ceiling or broken up into pieces! Do not worry, practice does make perfect.
