Cowboy Quesadillas

YEEHAW!  Cowboy Quesadillas are the ultimate football food, especially for this cowboy family!  As a Velveeta Kitchenista, it’s time again for me to bring you another round of delicious Velveeta recipes!

It’s funny because of all the football food I’ve shared here on My Wooden Spoon, I don’t think I’ve ever made any quesadillas, which are perfect finger food!  Sadly, the Dallas Cowboys aren’t doing too well this year so while we enjoyed the quesadillas, we did not enjoy the game.  What I love about quesadillas is that like an omelet, you can pretty much put anything you want in it.  This particular recipe called for green onions but since I have a couple of boys who aren’t big fans of green onions, we chose to use black beans instead and it was really good!

Truett wasn’t as big of a helper as he usually is, in fact, he was being a lil punk but I always enjoy having him in the videos.  You’ll see that these are SO easy to make and literally only take minutes.  Enjoy the video, followed by the recipe below! (All groceries were bought at Walmart, as usual.



  • 1 lb. (16 oz.) VELVEETA Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 6 flour tortillas (10 inch)
  • 4 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced  (We used a can of black beans instead)
  • 1 can (10 oz.) RO*TEL Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained


COMBINE VELVEETA and tomatoes in 1-1/2-qt. microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 5 to 6 min. or until VELVEETA is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring every 3 min. Stir in chicken and onions.  HEAT large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Spoon about 1/2 cup chicken mixture onto half of 1 tortilla; fold in half. Add to skillet; cook 1 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.

CUT into wedges and enjoy!
