Green Chile Cheese Quesadillas are filled with gooey cheese, zesty green chilies, and toasted in a flour tortilla. They’re an easy and inexpensive lunch or dinner option and are vegetarian friendly!

Enjoy them vegetarian as I did, or add leftover chicken or turkey for a heartier meal!

Serve these quesadillas with Chipotle Ranch Sauce and a Pineapple or Sunset Margarita!

Green Chile Cheese Quesadillas

I basically filled my Green Chile Quesadillas with my Quick Chile Cheese Dip. I enjoy these flavors so much, I’ve actually made a few recipes with Chile Cheese flavors.

Not only are these quesadillas taste delicious, they an easy and economical lunch, dinner, or appetizer option.

They’re filled with corn,  green chiles, and cheese. Another biggie, these quesadillas take only about 12 minutes to make.

Tips and Subs

  • For the cheese, I like Monterrey Jack, Pepper Jack, or Colby cheese. You can use your favorite cheese or whatever you have on hand. I recommend shredding your cheese instead of purchasing pre-shredded cheese. Pre-shredded cheese is coated with a cornstarch mixture to keep it from sticking which may alter some of your recipes.
  • Add chicken – If you have leftover chicken or turkey, add it to your quesadilla for more protein.
  • For the tortillas – Of course, you can use any size tortilla you like, I used 6-inch flour tortillas because they fit in my pan nicely and are easier to flip than the large ones. As well, you can use any tortillas you like. The Coconut Wraps are organic, gluten-free, and paleo. And these are low-carb and low-fat. These are sweet potato wraps that are wheat-free and gluten-free! There are so many tortillas to choose from!
  • ToppingsChipotle Ranch Sauce is a must, but sour cream, avocado, and pico is tasty too!

  1. I added a good bit of cumin, & a little garlic powder & cayenne for good good measure- very good! Will definitely keep this in rotation! A nice change from regular quesadillas.
