Fresh bell pepper, onion and jalapeño peppers bring delicious flavor to this Chicken Fajita Sheet Pan Quesadilla. It’s the perfect easy weeknight dinner for a hungry crew!



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup diced bell pepper (red, green and/or yellow)
  • 1/2 cup diced white onion
  • 1 medium jalapeno, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 3 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 13 (8 to 10-inch) flour tortillas

Serve with:

  • Sliced avocado
  • Guacamole
  • Cilantro
  • Jalapeno slices
  • Sour cream
  • Pico de gallo
  • Lime wedges


  1. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large heavy duty pan. Add the bell pepper, onion, jalapeno and garlic, sauté for 5 minutes or until peppers and onion are tender. Add the chicken and taco seasoning to the pan and stir to combine well. Remove from heat.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  3. Coat the inside of a 18″×12″ rimmed sheet pan with butter, making sure to cover completely.
  4. Lay 10 tortillas on the sheet pan, starting with the corners and overlapping a bit to cover the entire pan, leaving about two inches hanging over the edge of the pan.
  5. Spread chicken mixture over tortillas in the sheet pan.
  6. Sprinkle evenly with the shredded cheese.
  7. Lay three tortillas down the middle of the pan. Fold edges of the tortilla left hanging over the pan to cover completely. Use a toothpick to hold the edges in place, if needed.
  8. Butter the bottom side of a second rimmed sheet pan. Remove the toothpicks and place on top of the tortillas, buttered side down, pressing it down just a bit.
  9. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove top sheet pan and let bake for another 5 minutes or until golden brown all over the top.
  10. To serve, cut into squares and serve with your favorite quesadilla toppings.
