There are those dishes in our recipe box that appeal to the entire family. This is the case with these cheese and chicken quesadillas. They are super easy to prepare, and are always a hit when served. So versatile, it doesn’t matter if you prepare them at home for a mid-week meal or if you are on vacation or enjoying the weekend with your family, camping at the beach or the mountains.

This time I did not go camping, but I invited some friends to come over and enjoy a day at our community pool where I live. After spending the afternoon at the pool, the chicken quesadillas hit the spot perfectly.

I like to make these because you can fill them with vegetables, mushrooms, chorizo, beef, pork, or your favorite filling. You can’t go wrong with this recipe. So far, I’ve created many successful combinations everyone has liked. Just look for tasty leftovers in your refrigerator or freezer. Use everything you’ve cooked for the week and add Cacique® cheese for a delicious flavor boost.

In this case, I had prepared a roasted chicken, and as always I had plenty of leftovers. I stored the leftovers and when I was pressed for dinner time, I prepared these delicious quesadillas using Cacique® Queso Quesadilla cheese. I served them with a side of Mexican rice, guacamole and a mixed salad made with another of my favorites, Cacique® Queso Blanco.

The secret is to let the cheese soften completely and incorporate with the rest of the ingredients. Cacique® cheese is always there to make meal time a complete success.
