Ckicken Quesadilla Pie

This recipe uses a tortilla rather than a pie crust, so I call it a Quesadilla rather then a Quiche. You can call it anything you like, but I call it just Good eatin'. It is quick and simple, making it a good camping dish.

1 ( 12-inch or larger ) flour tortilla
Pan spray
3 cups chicken meat, shredded or cut in bite size pieces, cooked  *
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded, divided
½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
½ cup pickled jalapeños, chopped
1 teaspoon salt, divided
½ teaspoon pepper
3 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

* left overs or rotisserie 

Spray a 10" dutch oven with pan spray. Press the tortilla into the Dutch oven and spray lightly with the pan spray. In a large mixing bowl, combine chicken, 1cup of the cheese, cilantro, jalapeños, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Spread filling over over the tortilla.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together until smooth, eggs, milk, flour, baking powder, and ½ teaspoon salt. Slowly pour over filling, then sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
Bake at 450ºf. Place Dutch oven over 12 to 14 charcoals. Place lid on oven and 17 or 18 charcoals on lid and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Let cool for 10 minutes, Cut into wedges and serve.


  1. Hi Ron,

    I just found your site. Is the Rogue Valley DO chapter still active? I live in Grants Pass.

    1. I think so. Check with Bob Russell at The Butte Creek Mill.

  2. Second Saturday in May the Mill will hold there big event. Vintage Fare

  3. This dish is presented beautifully and it looks delicious. I am going to ask for your help, I Rv with a group of several friends , and I want to make something spectacular for an outing to the calif coast in sept. In the past we've roasted a whole piglet and rotisseried a prime rib. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    1. if you have a large Dutch oven, you could do a standing Crown pork roast stuffed with a corn bread,sausage dressing, or a mashed potato w/ a purred califloure.

    2. At the bottom of see "Older Post" click on that and you can go back about 5 years of recipes. You may find something you like. Good Luck. I will look for more suggestions.

    3. Look up "Smoked Salmon Scalloped potatoes, 1/18/11 and Topsy Turvy, (Apple Pie)3/01/10. Sorry I'm so slow.Had to change jobs and am a little busy. I think you will like both of these.
