These cheese crusted keto quesadillas are a spin on the regular cheese quesadillas with just as much decadence but with fewer carbs. A delectably crispy cheese blend “tortilla” is topped with an addictive chicken mixture for a quesadilla that will have you coming back for more when the craving hits.

If you’ve ever made a cheese-filled wrap or toasted sandwich, you may have experienced the deliciously addictive phenomenon that is crispy cheese. When cheese is in direct contact with the pan, it creates a layer that hardens up and becomes almost like a cheese “crisp.” That is the base for this quesadilla recipe, which combines the creamy notes of the chicken mixture with a variety of herbs and spices for incredible crunch and flavor with every bite.

Unlike regular quesadillas, the only cooking required is to prepare the cheese “tortillas.” Once these have been prepared, you can set them aside and then mix together the ingredients required for the chicken mixture. We recommend rotisserie chicken for ultimate convenience (plus, we think it tastes amazing), but if you have some leftover chicken breast or thigh, simply shred them and add them to the mix.

Red onion and red bell pepper add some color and vibrancy to the mixture while also cutting through the mayonnaise’s creaminess. Cheese and chicken can be a relatively filling combination, so adding in a generous dose of vegetables can make it that much fresher. Don’t forget to serve them with a sprinkle of parsley or cilantro!
