These quesadillas have been a staple in our family for  years.  They are super easy and just delicious!  Our recipe makes about 8 quesadillas


  • 8 extra large tortillas – burrito size
  • Shredded chicken, about 1/4 cup per tortilla.  We roast a whole chicken and can make this recipe twice.
  • 1 red bell pepper, sauteed in a little olive oil
  • 1/2 of a red onion
  • Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • Onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt, pepper to taste


  • If you have followed this blog and own a Pappy’s Campfire Cooker… you know the drill.  Light your fire and let it get to an even flame.
  • If you are camping, easily prep and pack ingredients separately and combine into a quesadilla quickly on site.
  • Lightly sautee red bell pepper and red onion, set aside.
  • Cook chicken and shred.  Season with Onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and pepper to taste, stirring until all chicken is lightly seasoned.
  • Place tortillas flat onto Grill Plate surface, sprinkle only 1/2 of tortilla with cheese, place down chicken, then red bell pepper/onion mixture, and another thin layer of cheese.  Taking a long spatula, fold the empty half over to cover.  Allow cheese to melt and flip onto it’s other side to brown.
  • Remove from Grill Plate and serve!  YUM!
