Easy Gluten-Free Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla

This easy, healthy, buffalo chicken quesadilla makes the perfect game-day appetizer or weekday lunch/dinner!
Servings 1


  • 1/4 heaping cup shredded buffalo chicken
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 avocado (mashed)
  • 1/4 cup chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese sauce or ranch (optional: for dipping)


  • Pre-heat your tortilla before filling it with toppings and folding it by heating it on a skillet for 30 seconds per side. This will help it fold without breaking. Use kitchen shears to cut a slit halfway through the middle of the tortilla. (It should look like Pac-Man with his mouth closed.)
  • Place the buffalo chicken on a quarter of the tortilla. Do the same with the romaine lettuce, cheese, and avocado until the tortilla is full.
  • Fold a quarter of the tortilla on to itself until it is completely sanwhiched into one quesadilla that is 1/4 of the original size of the tortilla. (I highly recommend watching the video attached to do it properly).
  • Preheat a non-stick skillet with 1 tbsp. of avocado oil over medium-high heat. Place the quesadilla on the pan and then apply pressure on top with a spatula or a pan to firmly press the quesadilla down so it is thin and crispy (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Gently flip and place pressure on top of the quesadilla for another 2 minutes until crispy.
  • Slice in half and enjoy dunked in ranch or blue cheese. Garnish with green onions if you want!
