I LOVE this recipe. It comes together in about 10 minutes so it’s perfect for lunch, a snack, light dinner (serve it with a salad) or a quick appetizer. If you want to cut calories and fat, you can omit the cheese inside the quesadilla and only use the feta in the red pepper sauce. I have done that and it was still popular.

EASY Mediterranean Quesadillas with Feta, Red Pepper Sauce
1 cup chopped, skinless rotisserie chicken
1/3 cup hummus
1 tablespoon chopped red onion
½ teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chopped black olives
1 tablespoon chopped green olives
3 (8-inch) flour tortillas
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Parsley or cilantro to garnish (optional)
1/3 cup feta cheese
¾ cup roasted red pepper slices
These quesadillas are so, so, so easy and delicious!
Make the sauce first. Place feta and roasted red pepper slices in a food processor and process for 30 seconds. Set aside.
Next, mix chicken, hummus, onion, cumin, and olives together and set aside.
Place mixture in half a flour tortilla shell (so when you fold it over it looks like a half moon). Top the mixture with cheese.
Preheat a nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium heat. When hot, place the folded quesadilla down and cook about 3-4 minutes per side.
If desired, garnish with parsley or cilantro (I did this more for the photo than the taste).
Remove and top with red pepper sauce and serve immediately.
