How to Make Chicken Quesadillas with Creamy Jalapeño Sauce


  1. First, make the sauce because it will need to chill for an hour for flavors to develope. Take a small bowl, add all sauce ingredients and stir well to combine. Cover and let chill for 1 hour, so the flavor of the spices can blend.
  2. Cook chicken, you can fry it or even boil it. Chop and shred the chicken, and season it with seasoned salt or salt and pepper.
  3. Take large skillet, pour oil in so the outside of burrito can get crunchy. Take burrito and spread your sauce on top, add cheese to one half of the burrito, and then top with chicken. Place in hot oil, fry, and flip one side over like an omlet, fry until crispy and light brown. Continue with other burritos.
