Ingredients (19)


Tomato Salsa

  • plum tomatoes, seeded and finely diced 4
  • small red onion, finely diced ½
  • jalapeño, finely diced ½
  • juice of 1 lime
  • olive oil 2 tablespoons
  • fresh basil, finely chopped into ribbons 3 tablespoons
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • quesadillas
  • sour cream, for serving ½ cup
  • Tomato Salsa, recipe above, for serving
  • fresh basil, chopped for garnish 2 tablespoons
For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Steps (6)


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 450°F. 

  2. 2

    Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and season with 1½ teaspoons of Hidden Valley® ranch seasoning. Cook until the mushrooms are golden brown and all of their liquid has evaporated. Set aside to cool. 

  3. 3

    Place the tortillas next to each other on a baking sheet (you may need two sheets). Sprinkle a thin layer of the cheese on 8 of the tortillas. Add the cooled mushrooms to four of the tortillas and the shredded chicken on the other four tortillas, making sure they are well-distributed. Season each layer with salt and pepper. Stack the tortillas to create four 2-layer quesadillas. Cover each quesadilla with the remaining tortillas and brush the top tortilla lightly with canola oil and sprinkle with remaining Hidden Valley® ranch seasoning.

  4. 4

    Bake for 6 to 8 minutes until the cheese is melted and the tortillas turn lightly golden brown and have crispy edges. While the quesadilla cooks, make the tomato salsa. 

Tomato Salsa

  1. 1

    Combine the tomatoes, red onion, jalapeño, lime juice, olive oil and basil in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper.


  1. 1

    Remove the quesadillas from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. Immediately cut into 4 pieces. Garnish each slice with a dollop of sour cream. Add a dollop of salsa on top of the sour cream and garnish with basil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super yummy with a twist! I made this recipe a few nights ago but added my own tist. My family does not like mushrooms so I exchanged the mushrooms for fresh,thick sliced smoked bacon. Added fresh green onion to the mis as well as a mexican blend of cheeses to the chicken side and mozzarella to the bacon side. So in turn, Chicken, Bason Ranch quesadillas!! Is now a family fav!
