  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chili powder
  • 1 can (284 mL) CAMPBELL’S® Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) PACE® Chunky Mild Salsa, plus additional for serving
  • 2 cups (500 mL) shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) sliced green onion
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) sour cream, for serving


  1. In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion, red pepper, and chili powder. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until starting to brown. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in soup and salsa.
  2. Cook, stirring often, for 3-5 minutes or until peppers are tender-crisp. Stir in chicken; cook 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat, stir in green onions and cool for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Spread one quarter of the chicken filling over half of a tortilla; fold tortilla over to enclose filling. Repeat with remaining filling and tortillas.
  4. Set a clean non-stick pan over medium heat; coat in non-stick cooking spray. Toast quesadillas, in batches, for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Carefully remove from pan and rest 1-2 minutes; cut each quesadilla into wedges. Serve immediately with additional salsa and sour cream.

Recipe tips

  • For quesadillas with some bite, add a few dashes of hot sauce or cayenne pepper with the soup and salsa.
  • Use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken for a speedy weeknight recipe or dish.
  • Feel free to experiment with cheese. We recommend monterey jack cheese!

    Awesome dinner

    I buy a pre-made roast chicken and then double the rest of the ingredients. My family and grand kids love this recipe!

    Easy and Delicious

    Super easy to make, especially when you use rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. My crew of 4 teens and my husband all loved these!
