Tacos, or quesadillas? Have the best of both with fried quesadilla tacos

These fried quesadilla tacos are just what your Taco Tuesday needs!

It’s a marriage of two of our favorite Mexican dishes – quesadillas and tacos! Take the cheesy, crispy quesadilla and pair it with the toppings of a traditional taco, and you’ve got a dinner your family will ask for over and over.

Salsa Verde Chicken Street Tacos


  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • Garlic salt and pepper – to taste (generously cover the chicken breasts)
  • 1/2 chopped onion or 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 2 cups salsa verde


In a slow cooker, cook on high for 4-6 hours.

Serve on corn tortillas or fried quesadillas. Garnish with chopped white onion, chopped cilantro and lime wedges.


Fried Quesadillas


  • Yellow corn tortillas
  • Mexican shredded cheese


On a griddle, heat corn tortillas for about one minute on medium/high heat. Flip over and cover with shredded cheese. When cheese is just melted, flip tortilla over again, cheese-side down. Let it cook the cheese until slightly crispy. Eat as is or serve as your taco shell.
