Using a spatula, press down on the tortilla so the top sticks to the cheese and the bottom of the tortilla is pressed firmly on the skillet.  You will have a half moon quesadilla.  Let this cook for 3-5 minutes until golden brown on the bottom.  Carefully flip it over and continue cooking for another 3-5 minutes until the second side is brown.

  • 8 Ole Extreme Wellness Tortillas
  • 2 Cups of cooked, shredded chicken breast
  • 2 Cups of Shredded Cheddar cheese
  • ½ Sliced yellow onion
  • ½ Tsp. Chili powder
  • ½ Tsp. Onion powder
  • ½ Tsp. Garlic powder
  • ½ Tsp. Ground cumin
  • 1 Tsp. Kosher sale
  • ½ Tsp. Fresh ground black pepper
  • Pam Cooking Spray


  • Mix all the seasonings in a small bowl and put to the side.
  • Sautee the sliced onion in a pan sprayed with Pam Cooking spray until the onions are soft and wilted. Add to a bowl with the room temperature shredded chicken.
  • Place one tortilla in a dry pan on the stove. On one half of the tortilla, spring 1/8 cup of cheese and top with ¼ cup of chicken/onion mixture and then another 1/8 cup of cheese.
  • Fold the empty side of the tortilla over the mixture creating a half moon. Press down with a spatula and heat for 3-5 minutes until the tortilla is lightly browned. Carefully, flip the tortilla over to brown the other side and continue to melt the cheese and heat the chicken mixture through.
  • If you are making these individually you can put them on a lined baking sheet and put into a 200-degree oven to keep them warm while making the other quesadillas.
