The big game is this weekend and I will be making Chicken Avocado Quesadilla's for the crowd. Easy to make and good!!

Its my hubbies birthday and I love to fix all his favorite dinners all week long.  We call it Birthday Day Week!  I’ve got his favorite dessert in the oven and oh my it smells so good and I will be making his favorite dinner tonight.  Even though he is a southern man, he loves Mexican food.  Especially my Chicken Avocado Quesadillas.

We both laugh every time I tell him I am going to make these because hubby can’t seem to say quesadilla very well.  But, he doesn’t care how to say it, just bring them to the table.

For years I use to make it without avocado and I had one that was getting pretty ripe, so I decided to put it in the sauce.  He never noticed anything different.  I love sneaking goodness into his food.  The avocado really adds a creaminess to the sauce.  Avocados from Mexico are available all year round.

And these are perfect for football parties we have.

Chicken Avocado Quesadilla

Simple ingredients really make this dinner or appetizer easy to make. An Old El Paso soft taco kit from my local Publix, cheddar, and Monterey Jack with Jalapenos cheese, shredded chicken, and the sauce. The chicken is mixed with the packet of taco seasoning which comes with the kit.

The sauce is what really brings this all together and you will find the recipe below.

I always make an assembly line near the stove and I highly suggest a nonstick pan for this. I do mist the pan with olive oil after each quesadilla is made. Start with the sauce all over the soft flour shells. The chicken and cheese only go on half the shell as you can see in the picture below.

The stove is on about medium-high and I let it sit there for a minute or two.

I flip the empty side of the taco shell over the half with the chicken and cheese. I then take a spatula and press down a bit on it so the cheese will stick to the shell and hold it together.

After a minute or two, I flip it over and let the other side brown. This process makes it nice and crispy.

I take each quesadilla and cut it half to serve as an appetizer or you can leave it whole for a dinner meal.  Serve with sour cream and the taco sauce included in the kit.

  1. Wow i never try this and it looks delicious. I need to try this for my family. Thanks for the instruction

  2. To be honest, I never thought of adding avocados in a quesadilla before, but it makes perfect sense! I love the idea. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  3. Those quesadillas look great. My favorite football appetizer is dip. It’s the one time I indulge. Or salsa, that’s a close second (and salsa would go great w/your quesadillas). 🙂 Thanks for hosting.
