I love copycat recipes for things I like to eat at restaurants. That includes fast food. I don’t go to Taco Bell often, but when I do I often get their chicken quesadillas. They’re so good! Part of the reason I love them is the sauce, so I was so happy to find a copycat recipe. It’s a good one so I had to share with you all! I used this recipe (here). The changes I made were that I used rotisserie chicken instead of grilling my own and since I was using smaller sized tortillas, I used 2 per quesadilla (sandwiching them) instead of folding them over. I also used Mexican blend cheese instead of cheddar, monteray jack, and American.
The key to this copycat recipe is the sauce, of course. Check out the original recipe linked above for the exact measurements, but the sauce includes chopped jalapenos, jalapeno juice, mayonnaise, cumin, sugar, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt.
After mixing the ingredients for the sauce together, I spread it on the tortillas. Lay one down in a pan and then top the bottom half with the chicken and shredded cheese. Then, I place the other tortilla on top and after the bottom browns I carefully flip it to brown the other side.
I cut the quesadillas in to triangles and that’s it! So good! If you’re a sour cream lover you can have that to dip your quesadillas in to or salsa’s always a good choice!
Are there any copycat recipes you love?
