Chicken & Corn Salsa Quesadillas are a great choice for a quick & easy lunch or dinner.
I just love a good corn salsa, don’t you? One of my go-to quick and easy meals are quesadillas. My kids squeal with delight when we make quesadillas. I’m sure it’s mostly because they prefer simple Cheese Quesadillas; however, I like to make them a little bit more filling by adding corn salsa and chicken too. These Chicken & Corn Salsa Quesadillas can be a quick lunch or dinner, it’s totally up to you!
I like to make these in the skillet, much like you would a grilled cheese. I layer a tortilla with a bit of cheese, corn salsa, chicken, and more cheese. Once it’s all nice and full, I let it toast on each side. These are perfect served with some Restaurant Style Salsa. That happens to be my personal favorite topping.
I make these with both flour or white corn tortillas. I will say the flour tortillas setup the best; however, for those of us like myself that are gluten-free, white corn is a great option.
The corn salsa is a burst of flavor with several ingredients, simply mixed up. This way you get a nice helping of veggies on that quesadilla too. I typically make enough corn salsa to last throughout the week too. It’s perfect served on these Corn Salsa Burgers or Corn Salsa Brats too.
In the midst of the crazy busy weeks we’ve been having, putting these together in less than 10 minutes was a dinner time rescue. Have you had nights like that lately? I am starting to really look forward though to the days that aren’t such a rush, when I can spend more time in the kitchen.
It’s nice though to have recipes such as these Chicken & Corn Salsa Quesadillas that happen to save dinner!
