Southwest Chicken Quesadilla

Cook time:

10 minutes

Difficulty level:


Whether its weeknight meals or tailgates, these Grilled Southwest Quesadillas will be a hit! We like to use Adobo Lime Chicken, but if you didn’t prep it in time, no worries. Just use your favorite Southwest rub (such as Hardcore Carnivore Tex Mex) and a little lime juice instead!


  • 4 burrito-sized flour tortillas
  • 3 cups chicken (We like to use Adobo Lime Chicken)
  • 1-1/3 cups shredded Monterrey jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes (about 1 vine-ripened tomato)
  • 1/2 cup seasoned black beans (sometimes sold as Cuban or Southwestern,) drained but not rinsed
  • 1/2 cup frozen or fresh corn, thawed
  • Other optional toppings: fresh or pickled jalapenos, green Tabasco sauce, chopped cilantro


  1. Heat grill to approx. 300 degrees.
  2. Place 1 flour tortilla directly on the grates then layer 3/4 cup of chicken, 1/3 cup cheese, and 1/4 each tomatoes, black beans, and corn. Sprinkle on another 1/3 cup cheese then place another flour tortilla on top.
  3. Cook until golden brown then spray top with nonstick spray, flip and cook until second side is golden brown.
  4. Allow to slightly cool, slice, & enjoy!
