Chicken Quesadillas

Everyone loves quesadillas, and these are especially tasty. Made with a garlic-lime cream cheese mixture and shredded chicken, they’re great for a crowd on game day, or for a light family supper.







  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 cups chicken, cooked and diced to ⅜-inch
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon bottled hot sauce (optional)
  • 16 small flour tortillas (5-inch)
  • 3 Tablespoons Challenge Spreadable Butter


  • 1

    Blend together cream cheese, garlic salt and lime juice in a bowl or blender. Stir in chicken until pieces are evenly distributed in mixture.

  • 2

    Preheat oven to 250°F.

  • 3

    Spread butter on one side of each tortilla (about ½ teaspoon). Place tortillas, one at a time, butter-side down in large skillet or griddle over medium heat.

  • 4

    Add about 2 to 3 tablespoons cream cheese/chicken mixture on half of each tortilla. Fold tortillas in half over filling, so buttered side is out.

  • 5

    Grill folded tortillas until golden – about 1 minute per side. Work in batches and transfer cooked tortillas to a baking pan in preheated oven.

  • 6

    Use a pizza wheel to cut each folded tortilla into halves.
