Quesadillas are a staple in my house, and very likely yours as well. They are a great way to stretch little bits of meat, cheese, and veggies.

Plus, they cook up crazy fast making them perfect for busy weeknights when homework needs to be done along with a ton of other activities leaving you with little time to cook.

For these easy chicken quesadillas, I used some of my pressure cooker spicy shredded chicken but you could use any type of plain precooked chicken you have on hand already. A rotisserie chicken would be a great substitute.

I kept these quesadillas simple and just seasoned the chicken up a bit and added cheese but you could certainly add some cooked and drained black or pinto beans for part of the chicken or add sauteed onions and peppers. The onions and peppers would give a fajita style quesadilla which would be quite tasty.
