Blooming Quesadilla Ring

Mandy Stone

Drizzle olive oil over chicken breasts and season both sides with Mrs Dash Southwest Chipotle seasoning, salt, pepper and parsley. Broil about 10-15 minutes each side, then shred . Also, add the drippings from pan into mixture of this recipe as written. This was outrageously delicious!


It was very impressive and very good! Many compliments!! The only change I made was used 1 cup of my homemade salsa plus 2 tblsp of taco seasoning.

Was a huge hit! Although with recommend amount of chicken, I was only able to get two rows of quesadillas. Would definitely need more chicken mixture for a third row. The whole thing went in about 5 mins so I wish I had the additional row 👍🏼 lol

for 20 servings

3 cups cooked and shredded chicken (375 g)
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeño, chopped
1 cup taco sauce (260 g)
20 taco-size tortillas
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (300 g)
3 cups shredded monterey jack cheese (300 g)

Preheat the oven to 375˚F (190˚C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, add the chicken, onion, red bell pepper, jalapeño, and taco sauce, and mix to combine. Set aside.
Cut each tortilla in half. Evenly add about 2 tablespoons each of the cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, and chicken mixture to each tortilla half.
Roll the tortillas into cones, starting fro the cut edge and making sure not to push the ingredients out of the tortilla.
Place a wide mouth jar or glass in the center of the baking sheet.
Create a ring around the jar with about 13 tortilla cones. The points of the cones should be in the center, touching the jar. Sprinkle cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese over the layer. Repeat with the remaining cones to make 2 more layers, finishing with the rest of the cheddar and Monterey Jack. Remove the jar from the center of the ring.
Bake until the cheese is melted and the edges of the tortillas are crispy, 15-20 minutes.
Carefully transfer the blooming quesadilla to a serving platter. Place your dip of choice inside the ring and top with your desired garnishes. Serve immediately.
