Life is too short to eat mediocre quesadillas.

At least that’s my philosophy. When dining out, there are usually so many intriguing options, I steer clear of plain-jane chicken quesadillas on the menu.

However, cooking quesadillas at home provides the opportunity to bump the flavor to new levels of goodness.

I like to sneak in unexpected ingredients, like a veggie you wouldn’t normally find in quesadillas, or something to add a little zip.

Recently I made a batch of quesadillas that my family absolutely adored.

I call them Sweet and Tangy Chicken Quesadillas, because of the zippy sauce the chicken is cooked in.

Want to try them?

Sauté the chicken in a blend of Musselman’s Apple Butter, cayenne pepper sauce, and apple cider vinegar.

The apple butter provides a deep rich sweetness that creates a perfect base for this spicy, tangy sauce.

Once the chicken is coated in the secret sauce, layer it on top of tortillas with cheese, seared red onions, bell peppers, and fresh cilantro.

Cover with more cheese and a second tortilla. Then flip when golden.

    Brilliant!!!  Quesadillas at home are a favorite of mine!

    These look awesome.

    Chicken Quesadillas have always be my favorite late night snack.  These look just like the ones I’d get at R. Thomas Grill in Atlanta after working the midnight shift.  

    Funny,  mine never looked this good at home.  I guess I should take this as inspiration to practice.

    Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

    I love easy quesadillas. It was my go to dinner while in my 20’s. Couldn’t even tell ya how often I made them – it was A LOT!

    Apple butter to quesadilla is such a good idea.

    A little sweet and savory never hurt anybody. Admittedly, I’ve mostly reserved apple butter for baked goods, but I’m open to all the ways in which it can be used!

  12. Julie Blannerposted January 4, 2016 at 10:46 pm Reply

    That’s brilliant! These quesadillas look irresistible…even my girls would love them.

    A perfect quesadilla recipe for all my boys!

  14. Gaby Dalkinposted January 5, 2016 at 12:48 am Reply

    yum!! these are going to be perfect for super bowl parties!

  15. Susanposted January 5, 2016 at 11:21 pm Reply

    This is a good idea.  For years my favorite pizza has been an apple butter pizza served at a Swiss-Italian pizzeria.  It’s not on the menu, but old timers remember from when it was.  The combination of a superior crust, apple butter and good quality mozzarella cheese (not as easy to find as you might think) is out of this world.  Add some tangy ingredients, and I can well imagine how good these quesadillas would be.  This is a recipe I am definitely trying!

    These sound yummy!

    One question: Would the cayenne pepper sauce be Tabasco or Sriachia or something else? Thank you!
