Cooking Tips:

It is important to not over stuff your tortilla as you will find that it will either pour out the sides or you will go to pick it up and it will be incredibly hard to handle.
You should avoid using too much oil as the tortilla will absorb the oil and make it soggy.
You can also use a pan to cook your chicken quesadilla but it is a little trickier as you will need to flip it to cook the other side of it.
You don’t have to use two tortillas, just simply use one and fold it in half. Only put the filling on one half of the tortilla otherwise you will end up with a mess.
It is easy to overcook your tortilla so use a medium heat and cook until the tortillas are nice golden crispy.
These are not very easy to cook for a crowd but if you’re going to give it a go you will need multiple pans or sandwich presses. They don’t keep very well so you should serve straight away.
There are many different variations with the chicken quesadilla only being just of many you can make beef, salmon and many more.
