Print Recipe


  • 2 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 8 oz Crystal Farms® Roasted Red Pepper Cheese grated
  • ½ cup corn kernels fresh or canned
  • 4 scallions thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 10-inch flour tortillas
  • 4 tablespoons butter softened
  • Sour cream salsa, and/or guacamole for serving


  • Season the chicken with taco seasoning on both sides.
  • In a skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Cook the chicken on both sides until cooked through, 4-5 minutes per side.
  • Transfer the chicken onto a cutting board. Let cool and then cut into small bite-sie pieces.
  • In a medium bowl, combine chicken, cheese, corn, scallions and cilantro.
  • Take ¼ of chicken mixture and spread over half of a tortilla, leaving about ½-inch border at edge. Fold the tortilla over filling, pressing firmly to seal. Continue with the remaining tortillas and filling.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  • Place 2 quesadillas in the skillet, and cook, firmly pressing with a flat spatula, until tortillas are golden brown and cheese is melted, about 2 minutes per side.
  • Transfer to a cutting board, and repeat with the remaining butter and 2 quesadillas.
  • Cut into wedges and serve with salsa, sour cream and/or guacamole, optional.
