Copy Cat Taco Bell Chicken Quesadilla Melts


I don’t know about y’all but my family was pretty upset when Taco Bell removed the shredded chicken quesadilla melts from their menu…we absolutely loved them (not to mention they were $1!) I know they replaced them with something similar but in my opinion they are no where near as good as they were before (why taco bell, why?) I wanted to share with you the “copycat” version I make that we really enjoy! 




  • put the chicken thighs in your pressure cooker and sprinkle the chicken taco seasoning on top (I also add a little creole seasoning but I’m a weirdo and add it to everything…it’s not necessary) add about 1 cup of water and cook high pressure for about 15 minutes. 
  • once the chicken is finished cooking, remove it from the liquid and shred
  • start assembling your quesadillas: Tortilla, a little chicken mix, a little cheese, a little sour cream, a little chipotle sauce, fire sauce if you like it, wrap.
  • heat a skillet with a little olive oil and warm up the quesadillas until they are warmed throughout (my husband likes his extra crispy so it’s cooked a little longer)

That’s it! we like to serve ours with some tortilla chips and salsa on the side! 




*QUICK TIP* this recipe can be made without a pressure cooker, it just made it a little quicker. Try making it on the stovetop, in the slow cooker, or even in the oven!

*ANOTHER QUICK TIP* if you are on a keto diet, use low carb tortillas or lettuce wrap and it will be keto friendly!

I hope you give this recipe a try! If you do, leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
