Leftover Chili Quesadillas

Save Recipe


Use your leftover chili to make deliciously cheesy chili quesadillas. Meaty, cheesy, and ready in minutes.


  • 2 1/2 cups leftover chili
  • 2 red peppers
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • sour cream
  • chopped cilantro


  1. Prepare ingredients:
    Heat leftover chili in the microwave or on stove top until warm.
    Slice peppers into strips.
  2. Cook quesadillas: lay one tortilla in pan. You’ll use about 1/2 cup shredded cheese per quesadilla, so sprinkle 1/4 cup of cheese down on the tortilla, then scoop the chili over the cheese, spreading it out over the tortilla. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese and the other tortilla.
  3. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining ingredients for a total of 4 quesadillas.
  4. Top with sour cream and chopped cilantro and serve with pepper strips.




  • Alternatively, you can heat them in the microwave for about 60 seconds, or until cheese has melted.
