Ah, Game Day food. Who can resist? Whether its baseball, football or even the occasional British 'footie" game, the munchies are a necessity. Game day is when you can easily eat way too much, feel horribly full and yet you can still continue to consume. Sound familiar? I almost dread it for that exact reason, but I always love a chance to try something new. That is where these Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas come into play. If you are a fan of Buffalo Wings, then this will easily become a new favorite. I loved the spiciness paired with the oozing cheese and crispy tortilla. While I made them for dinner, they would also be perfect for a quick tasty snack after school or work. They are incredibly simple to make for when you are in a rush.
To go alongside the wings I made some homemade gorgonzola dressing. While it got great reviews from my husband, I will take his word for it. I'm not fan but if you decide to try it, i'd love to hear your thoughts as well.
1 store-bought rotisserie chicken, shredded
3/4 cup buffalo sauce
1 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
12 small soft flour tortillas
Preheat your skillet on medium heat or heat your panini maker. Mix the chicken and the buffalo sauce in a bowl until it is mixed evenly. Then add the monterey jack cheese.
Divide the chicken-cheese-sauce mixture on 6 flat tortillas, then top each one with the other 6 tortillas.
In the preheated skillet or panini maker, spray nonstick spray. Then place your first quesadilla in. Only spend about 3-5 minutes per side, depending on how brown and crispy you would like them to get. Make sure they don't burn. Use a spatula to turn each one if using a skillet.
Cut the finished quesadillas into halves or quarters and serve.
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola
In a bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, salt, and pepper until well blended. Stir in the gorgonzola.
