There's nothing bland about this recipe from A Kitchen Addiction. The jalapenos and green pepper add just the right amount of spice, while the ranch dressing and cheeses add the perfect bit of creaminess. The black beans add a bit of heartiness and a depth of flavor that you don’t normally expect in a quesadilla. Feta crumbles are added along with the usual shredded cheese to give the quesadillas a more authentic buffalo chicken flavor.


  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded chicken
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 3 tablespoons ranch or blue cheese dressing
  • ¼ cup green pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeno, chopped
  • ½ cup black beans
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, I used a blend of cheddar and mozzarella
  • ½ cup feta or blue cheese crumbles
  • Sour cream and salsa, for garnish


Step 1

  • Stir together chicken, hot sauce, and dressing until well-combined.

Step 2

  • Spray a skillet with olive oil (I used a Misto Bottle for this) or non-stick cooking spray.

Step 3

  • Place a tortilla shell in the skillet. Top with ¼ C shredded cheese. Spread half of chicken over the top. Sprinkle with half of the peppers, black beans, and feta crumbles. Spread another ¼ C shredded cheese over top. Top with another tortilla.

Step 4

  • Cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes per side or until tortilla is light golden brown and cheese is melted.

Step 5

  • Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.

Step 6

  • Cut into wedges and serve with sour cream and salsa.
