We like to use our VillaWare Pizza Grill, as it makes the perfect platform for grilling quesadillas. You can check out our review. If you don’t have yours yet, you can just put the tortillas on directly on the grill, over a low heat.
To make these chicken quesadillas, we grilled some chicken breasts, red peppers and onions right next to the VillaWare frame. To grill the peppers and onions, just brush them lightly with olive oil and them put them over direct medium heat. Keep an eye on the peppers as they can quickly go from done to burned. Once the chicken was ready, we cut it up into pieces and assembled a quesadilla. Add cheese first, then the chicken, onions and pepper.
With the pizza stone in the “zone” at 500 degrees, we slid on the quesadilla.
After only about 2 minutes, the cheese was melted, so the only thing left was to fold it in half and remove from the grill.
The quesadillas were just amazing. We added some homemade guacamole to finish off the dish nicely.
