Blackstone Chicken Fajita Quesadillas Recipe:

If you are looking for a simple lunch or dinner idea, make chicken fajita quesadillas. These quesadillas can be made on your Blackstone or a large skillet.

The chicken is seasoned with taco fajita seasoning. The chicken is then placed between two tortillas so the melted cheese all blend together. This is great recipe to use leftover chicken and add in some vegetables.

Top your quesadillas with sour cream, guacamole and salsa for a complete meal. This recipe is perfect to feed a crowd. The Blackstone allows you to cook the quesadilla easily because of the large flat surface.

Can you use a Griddle for Quesadillas?

Yes, you can use a griddle for quesadillas. We recommend making quesadillas on the griddle. The tortilla gets crispy and golden brown and you can make your chicken on the same griddle.

Making a quesadilla is a quick lunch or dinner idea. It doesn’t take long to heat up the griddle and I can have lunch ready in about 15 minutes or less.

Fajita Chicken Quesadillas is one of our favorite Mexican dishes to make.

Chicken Fajita Quesadilla Tips:

  • Oil for the Griddle – I used vegetable oil in this recipe. But any oil with a high smoke point will work great. Avocado oil, coconut oil or canola oil would work great in this recipe.
  • Cheese – You can easily use your favorite type of cheeses in this quesadilla recipe. Use what you have. We like to use cheddar and pepper jack.
  • Vegetable – Red bell pepper works great in this recipe but any type will work.
  • Leftovers – These are best served fresh but you can refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
  • Seasoning – You can add in some garlic powder or chili powder for extra flavoring.

What temperature should a Griddle be for Quesadillas?

We recommend heating the griddle to about 400 degrees. We like to cook our chicken on high heat as this prevents the chicken from sticking to the flat top.

What type of Cheese is best for Quesadillas?

There are many different types of cheeses that you can use when making quesadillas. We usually use what we have on hand. Hand shred the cheese on the thinnest holes so that it melts evenly.

You can use cheddar cheese, Colby Monterrey jack cheese, or any type of Mexican Blend cheese.
