Ingredients

  • 2 10 inch flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Colby-Jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded rotisserie chicken

Quesadilla Sauce

  • 1/4 cup mayonaise see note
  • 2 tsps minced pickled jalapeƱos
  • 2 tsps pickled jalapeƱo juice
  • 3/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder

Instructions

  • Place a large skillet that you can fit with a lid over very low heat.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the ingredients for the sauce.
  • Divide the sauce in two and spread over each of the tortillas.
  • Working with one tortilla at a time, spray the skillet with a very small amount of cooking spray.  Place the tortilla (that has been prepared with the sauce) in the skillet.  Add half the cheese and half the chicken and fold it over on itself.  
  • Let it cook for about four minutes or until the shell begins to turn golden brown. Cover while it is cooking.  Flip it over, recover, and cook for another four minutes.  Repeat with the other prepared tortilla.
  • Slice with a pizza cutter and enjoy.

Notes

I used light mayonnaise. It saves on the calories and doesn't change the taste.
