These quesadillas are so good y’all. I love that this recipe is mostly hands off time while the chicken is baking with the onions and poblanos. I use lots of spices so this dish is packed with flavor without being spicy. The Cholula Ranch is just a touch of heat without being overly hot. Of course you always add more Cholula for extra heat if you like it spicy!

Poblano Chicken Quesadillas with Cholula Ranch 

This is a great meal to make for a lot of people or just for one! I like to make extra so that BMW and I can eat the chicken and peppers over rice or salad for lunches during the week. Because these have so much flavorful, they are always satisfying and make meals taste a little extra special without being too much work. I love quesadillas! They are basically just golden fried soft tacos with lots of cheese. Who can argue with that, right!?
