If you’re looking for a flavorful and fast way to feed a crowd look no further than these sheet pan chicken quesadillas.

They are packed with seasoned shredded chicken, corn, black beans, and lots of delicious cheese.

The best part about this quesadilla recipe is that it’s made on a sheet pan so you can pile in all the fillings, bake it, and BOOM a meal to feed a crowd!

While it’s not hard to make a traditional quesadilla I love the ease of having a quesadilla that can feed a family of 4 all done at the exact same time.

I love to dip mine in sour cream but it’s also great when topped with salsa and guacamole.

What is a sheet pan quesadilla?

It’s a delicious way to make a quesadilla that can feed a family of 4!

You add your flour tortillas to an oiled sheet pan and top with all your favorite toppings. Then just fold up the tortillas over the side, top with a few more tortillas, bake, and enjoy!

Can I make this vegetarian?

Of course!

I have made it by using sautéed sliced mushroom instead of using shredded chicken to up the veggie intake and to make it vegetarian.

If you’re looking to make it vegan you can use the sliced mushrooms and replace the shredded cheese with non-dairy cheese.

Can I use corn tortillas?

Yes, but because corn tortillas tend to be smaller you may have to use a few more in order to cover the whole sheet pan quesadilla.

You can also use larger flour tortillas if you cannot find 6-inch flour tortillas.

What other fillings can I add to this sheet pan quesadilla?

I love making my quesadillas super customizable so here are a few of the delicious additions I love:

  • sautéed bell peppers and onions
  • cooked mushrooms
  • minced cilantro
  • pica de gallo
  • spinach
  • sliced avocado

How can I store leftover sheet pan chicken quesadillas?

While it’s very easy for me eat this whole recipe (I’m a HUGE quesadilla lover!) it will keep well in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Make sure to leave any toppings (salsa, guacamole, sour cream, etc.) off the quesadilla as it can make the tortilla a little soggy in storage.
