A Cheesy Delicacy

We all know that it is very difficult to resist a steamy and creamy tortilla filled with overflowing cheese; but what’s even more irresistible is this very dish with the addition of chicken, mushrooms and our brand new  Butter & Sea Salt Jasmine Rice Cups. Luckily, the only things that you’ll need to prepare this mouth-watering delicacy are some simple ingredients and 7 minutes!

So, if you have any tortilla left over on your shelf, this is the ideal opportunity to shine during your lunch break (or whenever you want) with just a few effortless preparation steps. For another cheesy treat, grab those extra tortillas and roll a Cheesy Beef & Rice Burrito – it even has hidden veggies! 

Double Dipping

Things get even more interesting when you dip these soft quesadillas in a sauce of your preference. In fact, why stop at just one sauce? Here, you’ll find a quick list of dipping sauces that would taste great with your meal:

Marinara: perfect if you want to add a touch of italian flavor to your food.

Chipotle Guacamole: the most spicy and authentic way to enjoy a little taste of Mexico wherever you are.

Beer Cheese: quesadillas are already filled with cheese, but if that’s not enough for you, you could dip them in more cheese with this robust dipping sauce that will make you believe you are in an Irish pub.

Tzatziki: if you are not new to Minute®, you’ll know that we already mentioned this appetizing Greek sauce more than once on our blog.

Honey Mustard: this is something you can’t help but try if you are a big fan of spicy and sweet combinations.

Those options would all look great on a taco platter for your next Tex-Mex and Mexican Dinner Party!
