Chicken and Pico de Gallo Quesadillas

I don’t know about your kids, but mine could live life with quesadillas as their only meal option.

Just put those cheesy triangles on a plate and they will love you forever! 

Oh, and don’t forget salsa for the little lady and guac for the young man. 😉

These 4 Ingredient Chicken and Pico de Gallo Quesadillas were created out of a last minute dinner we hosted. I had just enough time to wrap my mind around what food I would prepare and head to the grocery store. Quesadillas sounded like a simple and delicious option and I knew our guests would enjoy them.

The next choice would be what protein to add to the cheese and tortillas.

Thinking…

Ahha! Shredded chicken with a salsa, NO a homemade pico because you all know the premade stuff is crazy expensive. Yes, that would do and hopefully it would all come together the way I had hoped. 

Luckily this time it did. I have had my fair share of flops especially with first time (and sometimes 2nd-10th time!) recipes. 

Why, oh why do I try new recipes when guests are coming over?! I think I like to make myself crazy. Ha!

Along with the quesadillas I threw together a Mexican-inspired quinoa salad with ingredients my kitchen so graciously had on hand. 🙂

The salad had tons of sauteed veggies, tri-color quinoa, and a few simple spices. YUMMO!

Both the quinoa and this quesadilla recipe would be absolutely perfect for a quick family night meal or to feed guests like I did. To make it easy, pick up a rotisserie chicken and shred it at home as well as a premade pico de gallo. I know I was giving the premade a hard time, but it really is convenient!

When serving these 4 ingredient beauties give a choice of salsa, sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, and ALWAYS guacamole. 

I mean what is Mexican cuisine without guac?!

Notes

***Use your own judgement regarding how much cheese, chicken, and pico to put on each quesadilla! The measurements are just estimates and I make each quesadilla different every time I do it. How's that for giving you accurate instructions?! Needless to say, there is no wrong way to make these. They will always taste ahhhhmazing!! Enjoy!
