Blooming Quesadilla Ring



  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, chopped
  • 1 cup taco sauce
  • 20 taco-size tortillas
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

How to Make Blooming Quesadilla Ring:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, onion, red bell pepper, jalapeño, and taco sauce. Set aside.
  3. Cut each tortilla in half. Evenly distribute about 2 tablespoons each of cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, and the chicken mixture onto each tortilla half.
  4. Roll each tortilla half into a cone shape, starting from the cut edge, making sure not to push the ingredients out.
  5. Place a wide-mouth jar or glass in the center of the baking sheet.
  6. Arrange about 13 tortilla cones around the jar to form a ring, with the points of the cones touching the jar in the center. Sprinkle cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese over this layer.
  7. Repeat with the remaining cones to create 2 more layers, finishing with the rest of the cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese.
  8. Remove the jar from the center of the ring.
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the edges of the tortillas are crispy.
  10. Carefully transfer the blooming quesadilla ring to a serving platter. Place your dip of choice inside the ring and top with your desired garnishes.
  11. Serve immediately and enjoy!
