We love waffles for dinner and I don't just mean for dessert. From our pepperoni pizza waffles to these delicious Waffle Quesadillas we bring out the waffle iron at least once every couple of weeks for dinner. These are a great alternative to Chicken Taco's or Fajitas it's easy to adjust the spice level to what you enjoy so here you go our Dinner Waffle Chicken Quesadillas for family meals.
Waffles for Dinner
Savoury waffles are one of my favourites, but the kids weren't convinced at first used more to the waffles we enjoy for breakfast and desserts it took a little to convince them. But, they are now converted and loving trying new recipes and ideas.
As the waffle iron heats and cooks the waffle batter if you include cheese it melts into the waffles and is perfectly cooked when you release the lid.
We like to serve these with some guacamole, sour cream and a side salad. Perfect for Mexican night in the Hey Mom house.
What is a Quesadillas?
Quesadillas are a South to Central Mexica Taco that is usually made with a corn tortilla and filled with cheese, vegetables and some form of meat. Easy to make they are popular for lunch throughout Central America as well.
This version takes the idea of the cheese filled, with meat and Mexican flavours and puts it together in our favourite savoury waffle mix.
We have used cheddar and pepper jack cheese in this quesadilla recipe and as you tear into the waffles the cheese oozes out fantastic.
Made with chicken and taco seasoning the spice can be adjusted by using mild or stronger chilli powder to season the chicken.
