Taco Bell Chicken Quesadilla Recipe

One recipe of jalapeno sauce (separate entry)
4 chicken breast tenderloins
4 large flour tortillas (10-inch)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
2 slices American cheese
Prepare creamy jalapeno sauce by combining all ingredients in a small bowl.
Cover and chill so that flavors develop. Stir occasionally.
Preheat your barbecue grill to medium heat.
Rub chicken tenderloins with vegetable oil. Salt and pepper each side of
each tenderloin. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes per side. When chicken is done,
slice it very thin.
When you are ready to build your quesadillas, preheat a 12-inch skillet over
medium low heat.
When the pan is hot lay one tortilla in the pan. Arrange about 1/4 cup of
shredded cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup of shredded jack cheese on half of the
tortilla. Tear up half a slice of American cheese and arrange it on the
other cheeses.
Arrange about 1/4 cup of sliced chicken over the cheese.
Spread about 1 tablespoon of jalapeno sauce over the tortilla on the half
with no ingredients on it.
Fold the sauced-covered half of the tortilla over onto the ingredients on
the other half and press down with a spatula. Cook for about 1 minute, then
turn the quesadilla over and cook for a couple more minutes or until the
cheese inside is melted. Slice into four pieces and serve hot. Repeat with
the remaining ingredients.
Makes 4 quesadillas.
