If Chicken Enchiladas and Cheese Quesadillas had a baby, it would be these incredible Corn Tortilla Quesadillas!  They are my latest obsession, with  crispy edges, a soft gooey center, and mouthwatering flavor.  I filled these with hearty shredded chicken, flavored with warm and smoky Mexican spices.  Then layered in shredded Pepper Jack cheese and Cheddar that gets so melty and oozy and delicious.  The result?  An irresistible new dinner or appetizer idea…maybe breakfast, a mid-morning snack, dessert 🙄…I’m just sayin’.    

It Just Tastes Damn Good!

This past Spring I received my certification in Nutrition and Healthy Living from Cornell.  Since then, I have made sure to share the health benefits for each of my recipes.  Well, I will tell you that corn definitely has health benefits, including fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins.  But, let’s be real here.  No one eats Quesadillas for the health benefits!  Not even if they are made with corn tortillas.

So, these guys are just damn good.  That’s why you should make them 🙂

If you’re like me, Mexican Food is a guilty pleasure and it’s hard to stop at just one dish.  So, if you now have a hankering for more, check out these recipes!

PREP-AHEAD STEPS FOR YOUR CHICKEN CORN TORTILLA QUESADILLAS

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details) Chicken Corn Tortilla Quesadilla triangles on platter.

It's an irresistible new easy dinner or appetizer idea. #quesadillas #mexicanfood #enchiladas #familydinner #chicken

To start, determine what you want to fill your quesadillas with.  My kids really love Chicken and Cheese, so I went basic.  However, you can get creative or healthier by adding grilled zucchini, mushrooms, onions, peppers, steak, the list goes on!  In a pinch, I’ve been known to add frozen-then-cooked chicken fingers!

You can also use pre-cooked chicken from your store, whether that is rotisserie, grilled, or roasted.  If it’s pre-cooked, just be sure to shred it and then mix a little of the seasonings with it (Chili Powder & Cumin).

Ok, so up to 5 days in advance, you can roast or grill your chicken!

Drizzle a little bit of Olive Oil on the chicken and rub it all around. Then sprinkle all sides of chicken with Salt & Pepper and roast in 400 degree oven for 25 minutes (Or Grill it for 5-6 minutes on each side) until temperature reaches 165 degrees in center. Once the chicken has cooled enough to handle, shred it with 2 forks or with fingers.

Shred the cheese using the large hole side of your grater.  I really like to grate my own cheese because the pre-shredded cheese often has fillers in it to preserve and prevent it from melding together.  TIP: You can shred a bunch of cheese and FREEZE IT!  That way you always have it on hand for recipes where you will be melting it anyway!  Get more Freezer Hacks Here

COOK YOUR CHICKEN CORN TORTILLA QUESADILLAS

For a faster cooking process, preheat 1-2 large griddles or 2 large skillets. This way, you can get 3-4 (or more) quesadillas cooking at the same time.  Otherwise, you will just need to cook in batches, which is completely fine and uses less pans, but will take longer.

Lay out 8 tortillas on a flat surface (sheet pans, cutting board, plastic wrap, clean counter). Over each of the 8 tortillas, sprinkle a layer of PepperJack cheese. Then add shredded chicken. Last, sprinkle more Pepper Jack and a little Cheddar. Then top with the second tortilla.

To the preheated pans, brush on Olive Oil to the bottom and then immediately add a Quesadilla carefully transferring it from the flat surface to the pan using a large spatula. Cover the quesadilla(s) with a pan lid or aluminum foil so that the cheese starts to melt. Let cook for 3-4 minutes.

(If you have to cook these in several batches, keep them in a 300F degree oven on a sheet pan or aluminum foil to stay warm and melty.)

Black Beans are Magical! High Protein, High Fiber, and Gluten Free!

Black Beans are pretty amazing in terms of health benefits.  They have a whopping 15g of protein and 15g of Fiber in 1 cup! It’s recommended that Women get 25g of Fiber daily, but most women are not getting this much in their diet.   When I checked my daily fiber intake, I was only at about 15g and was really surprised!!  Track your Fiber for a day or two and see how you stack up. 

Black beans are a great source of Fiber, especially if you are eating a gluten free diet and may not be getting fiber from grains.  Try my Easy Brazilian Black Beans or Chickpea & Black Bean Cakes with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce or my Creamy Cajun Beans & Cauliflower over Quinoa for a few other great way to make these!

The best part about these is that you can make tons right on sheet pans and let people take as many as they want. Then you can save whatever is left to warm up later. Yum and yum again!

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR HUEVOS TOSTADAS COOKING KIT

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details)

The beans are the first component that you can completely prepare ahead and then reheat.  These are simply blended in a mini food processor with a garlic clove, chili powder, cumin, and water.  I love mine with some texture, so I pulse until its a nice mix and there are no huge chunks of garlic.  After blending, you will cook the beans on the stove for about 10-15 minutes until all of the flavors are melded together.

While the beans cook, you can make the tomato sauce, thinly slice the scallions and chop the cilantro. 
On a sheet pan or in a large bowl, place the black beans, cheese, the cilantro, tomato sauce, the uncooked tortillas, and Eggs. Store your ‘Kit’ in the fridge!  

COOK YOUR HUEVOS TOSTADAS 

When you’re ready to cook, pull your KIT out from the fridge and Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

Place the tortillas flat on a sheet pan. You will likely need 2 pans to cook the tortillas or you can do them in batches. Spray or brush the top of each tortilla with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then sprinkle salt and Chili Powder over top.  Then flip the tortillas over and do the same to the other side. Bake in oven center rack for 10 minutes one side, then flip the tortillas over and cook for another 10-15 minutes on the other side until they are crisp all the way to the center. When the tortillas are done, you can place them on paper towel or pat them down to soak up excess oil.

While the tortillas are in the oven, warm the tomato sauce up in a covered saucepot on stove. Warm the beans up in microwave or on stove.

Preheat a large skillet on high heat and spray with extra virgin olive oil. Then add 4 eggs at a time and sprinkle the top with salt and pepper. Cook just until the bottom sets, about 1-2 minutes, then flip over gentle and remove the skillet from the heat.  For little kids you can of course swap these with scrambled eggs. 

Now comes the assembly. First, spread a layer of black beans on the tortillas and then top with a fried egg.  Next drizzle the tomato sauce and add a sprinkle of cheese, then scallions, and cilantro.

  2. You want the beans mostly blended, but with some texture, as these will get cooked down and then spread on the tortillas. Scrape down the sides of the blender and add more water if needed, 1 tablespoon at a time, continuing to pulse until you get the ideal texture and there are no big chunks of garlic.

  3. After blending, add the beans to preheated saucepot with 1 tsp olive oil.  Stir the beans around as they cook so as not to burn. Turn the heat down to med-low and cook COVERED for 10 minutes.

  4. Tomato Sauce: While the beans cook, you can mix together in a bowl, the tomato sauce, chili powder, and cumin.  Taste for seasoning and add salt or adjust other seasonings as you like.

  5. Finally, thinly slice the scallions and chop the cilantro. Place these in separate storage bags.
  6. Store your 'Kit' in the fridge! On a sheet pan or in a large bowl, place the black beans, cheese, the cilantro, tomato sauce, the uncooked tortillas, and Eggs.

Final Cook and Assembly

  1. When you’re ready to cook, pull your KIT out from the fridge and Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

  2. Place the tortillas flat on a sheet pan. You will likely need 2 pans to cook the tortillas or you can do them in batches.  Spray the top of each tortilla with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then sprinkle salt and Chili Powder over top. Then flip the tortillas over and do the same to the other side. Bake in oven center rack for 10 minutes one side, then flip the tortillas over and cook for another 10-15 minutes on the other side until they are crisp all the way to the center.  When the tortillas are done, you can place them on paper towel or pat them down to soak up excess oil.

  3. While the tortillas are in the oven, warm the tomato sauce up in a covered saucepot on stove.  Warm the beans up in microwave or on stove.

  4. Preheat a large skillet on high heat and spray with extra virgin olive oil. Then add 4 eggs at a time and sprinkle the top with salt and pepper. Cook just until the bottom sets, about 1-2 minutes, then flip over gentle and remove the skillet from the heat. You want the bottom to set, but not the yoke, as you want that runny. Finish for all 8 eggs.
  5. Now comes the assembly. First, spread a layer of black beans on the tortillas and then top with a fried egg.

If you have small kids, you can certainly swap the runny fried egg with scrambled or just fully cook the yoke when frying.
