Kickoff Quesadillas

Fresh off-the-grill quesadillas from AllRecipes. If you have a Fuego Element gas grill, try this recipe on a porcelain enamel cast-iron griddle, sold separately at

What you’ll need:

  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • Adobo seasoning to taste
  • 12 (10-in.) tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese blend
  • 1 onion
  • 1 (6 oz.) can sliced black olives, drained
  • 1 (7 oz.) can diced green chilies, drained

What you’ll do:

  1. Marinate the chicken with adobo seasoning for 15 minutes. Chop the onion while you wait.
  2. Preheat your Fuego grill on medium-high heat.
  3. Place chicken on grill and cook for 10 minutes per side, or until juices run clear.
  4. Remove chicken from grill, let it cool and then cut into bite-size pieces.
  5. Place 2 to 3 tortillas on your Fuego grill, and sprinkle with a thin layer of cheese, chicken, onion, olives, and green chiles. Top with another tortilla.
  6. Grill until brown and crispy on both sides, approximately 3 minutes per side.
  7. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  8. Cut into wedges then serve!

Serve with salsa and sour cream, and you are ready for kickoff!
