The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

  • Fully cooked shredded chicken – this is a great use for leftover chicken, or you can cook raw chicken in a slow cooker until tender (which is what I did for this recipe). The Instant Pot is also a perfect way to quickly cook chicken to use in your quesadillas.
  • Buffalo sauce – use mild, medium, or spicy Buffalo sauce that you like.
  • Monterey Jack cheese – this cheese melts so nicely and has a nice flavor in these quesadillas.
  • Large flour tortillas – use burrito size tortillas.
  • Ranch Dressing – our Homemade Ranch Dressing is perfect with this.
