Tips for Making the Perfect Blooming Quesadilla Ring

There are a few things to keep in mind when making a Blooming Quesadilla Ring:

  • Use a high-quality nonstick skillet. This will help ensure that your quesadillas don’t stick to the pan and that they cook evenly.
  • Don’t overload the skillet. If you add too much filling, your quesadillas will be challenging to flip, and they’ll likely fall apart.
  • Cook the quesadillas over medium heat. If you cook them too fast, they’ll be crispy on the outside but raw on the inside.
  • Be patient! It takes a bit of time to cook a Blooming Quesadilla Ring, but it’s worth it in the end.

Ingredients

  • 20 soft flour tortilla taco shells

  • 4 cups colby and monterey jack cheese finely shredded

  • 3 cups cooked skinless and boneless chicken breast shredded

  • 1 yellow bell pepper seeded and diced

  • 1/2 cup sweet yellow onion finely diced

  • 1/2 cup red onion finely diced

  • 1/2 cup salsa your favorite brand

  • 1 cup taco sauce your favorite brand

  • 2 cups cheddar cheese finely shredded

  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped, optional garnish

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put a large, wide mouth glass jar in the center of the baking sheet.
  • Using a cutting board and a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, cut the tortilla’s in half. Cover the halved tortilla’s with a clean dry cloth and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the shredded cooked chicken, diced yellow pepper, finely diced yellow, finely diced red onion, salsa, and taco sauce. Stir well until all of the ingredients are completely incorporated.
  • Sprinkle 1 ½ to 2 tablespoons each of the shredded colby monterey jack cheese and the chicken mixture.
  • Roll each of the halved, “filled” tortillas into a cone shape. Be careful not to squish out the filling. The small pointed ends of the cones need to touch the wide mouth jar and form a ring around the jar.
  • Once you have made a complete bottom layer, about 12 to 13 cones, sprinkle ¾ cup of the shredded cheddar cheese on top of the ring.
  • Repeat the ring of cones for a second layer. Then top with 1 cup of the colby and monterey jack cheese.
  • Repeat for the 3rd and final ring. Remove the glass jar from the center of the cones.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the edges of the cones are golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  • Using the edges of the parchment paper, carefully transfer the quesadilla ring to a heat safe serving plate.
  • TIP: If you are wanting to trim the excess parchment paper, be very careful not to touch the hot cheese.
  • Serve the quesadilla ring with your favorite salsa or dipping sauce.
