I know I just said yesterday that I’ve been baking in lieu of Super Bowl foods, but these would be the exception.
Because quesadillas should always be the exception, right? These were inspired by the BBQ Chicken & Cheddar Pizza I posted about recently, and use pretty much the same flavor profile. So basically that means they are amazing and you will love them.
I made a super easy, warm corn and black bean salsa that both fills the quesadillas, and is served on the side. It’s a little bit sweet, a little bit sour, and a whole lot of delicious, with just a hint of spice. The BBQ sauce I used is my homemade Spicy-Sweet BBQ Sauce, which works really well here, but feel free to substitute with your favorite 🙂
I tried to make this recipe as simple and quick as possible so that you can whip it up in less than 10 minutes with ingredients you may already have on hand: frozen corn, canned black beans, cooked chicken, etc. They’d be perfect for the game on Sunday!
Now, with sandwiches, quesadillas, etc. I hate to put exact amounts of filling ingredients because… well… it should be up to you! Everyone likes different amounts of stuff. I personally like my quesadillas a little less cheesy because I like equal amounts of all the ingredients. Maybe you love cheese, go ahead, pile it on, I won’t tell! Maybe you’re a vegetarian, or you just don’t want chicken—skip it! Whatever, you know what you like!
