Sriracha Chicken Quesadillas

For as much as I love Tex Mex cuisine, I never make Quesadillas. I always feel like assembling them seems more hassle than it's worth. In the past my attempts at making them were challenging with the filling falling out of the tortilla or one side getting burnt. It's not that hard to make a quesadilla, but apparently it is for me! I decided to give it another shot after finding this amazing Sriracha Quesadilla Recipe while browsing pinterest. Yeah, baby! Cheesy, Spicy, Chicken goodness. What's not to love? They turned out great and were delish!

Sriracha Chicken Quesadillas
Heavily Adapted from All Recipes
Makes 8 wedges
WW PP=4 (per wedge)
Cal 169, Carbs 9.7, Fat 6.1, Fiber 1, Protein 16.3

2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1/3 cup Sriracha
2 tablespoons sour cream
1.5 cups reduced fat shredded cheddar jack
4 Fajita Size flour tortillas

 In a large mixing bowl, combine chicken, Sriracha, sour cream, and cheese.

Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and over medium heat lay a flour tortilla down in the skillet. Spoon ¼ of the chicken/cheese mixture on half of the tortilla in the skillet then fold the tortilla in half. Cook until the underside is lightly browned, about 2 minutes.

Carefully flip the quesadilla and cook until both sides are lightly browned and the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes more.

Repeat with the remaining 3 tortillas. To serve, cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges. Serve with sour cream, for dipping, and garnish with cilantro leaves and Sriracha, if desired. Enjoy!
