These sweet chili chicken quesadillas have a DELICIOUS peach salsa and are ready in under 20 minutes! Leftovers make for a great lunch the next day.
Note: this recipe is part of a series where I share a base slow cooker recipe, then three ways to use it. Here’s the base slow cooker sweet chili chicken recipe!
Here we are…day two of the 3-in-1 slow cooker series. Yesterday I shared the super duper easy slow cooker sweet chili chicken recipe, and today I’m sharing these delicious sweet chili chicken quesadillas with you.
Just like the base recipe, these guys are super easy, and SUPER tasty!
I had to take advantage of peach season and make some peach salsa to top these guys off. I sure do love me some fruit salsa, how about you? I’ve made cherry salsa, apple salsa, strawberry salsa, kiwi salsa and mango salsa (multiple times!) So it was about time for a summery peach salsa. And I’m kind of sad I waited this long to make it, because peach salsa might just be my favorite yet!
I didn’t want to mess around with cooking up any extra fillings for these quesadillas (I had considered some bell peppers and red onions and if you’d like to add some, I’d give them a quick sautee for 10 or so minutes). For these quesadillas I went super simple and just combined the slow cooker sweet chili chicken with some mozzarella cheese.
Fry them up, top with your peach salsa and you have the makings of one ridiculously easy and ridiculously delicious dinner. I would recommend serving with a side salad just to add a few more veggies 😉
This is honestly my favorite time of year. I love all the fresh fruit in the store, and it’s not just cheaper but has SO much more flavor!
Make sure you get the sweetest peaches you can for this peach salsa, and adjust the jalapñeos to taste. My jalapeños were definitely mild so I wouldn’t call this spicy. Up the jalapeños by all means or keep the seeds and membrane for a spicy salsa!
So. Day two of our 3-in-1 slow cooker series and I am pretty pleased. I can’t wait to share the third recipe with you (tomorrow)!
