Serves: 4


  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 4 10-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 avocado, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Daisy Sour Cream


In a 1 1/2-quart saucepan, mix the chicken, onions, chili powder, sugar, paprika, cumin, garlic powder and cayenne pepper; stir in the water. Cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring once or twice. For each quesadilla, spoon 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture on one half of a tortilla. Top with 1/4 of the avocado; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon lime juice. Top with 1/4 cup cheese and fold over. Press firmly. Coat the bottom of a 12-inch nonstick skillet with 1/2 teaspoon of the oil; heat over medium-low heat. Place one quesadilla in the skillet. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once with broad spatula. Repeat for the remaining quesadillas. Cut the quesadillas into wedges to serve. Garnish each wedge with the sour cream.

We're not avocado fans, but we do love our quesadillas! We used the Daisy Squeeze Sour Cream as a dipping sauce for our quesadillas and LOVED it! Since we do quesadillas a lot in the winter, we'll be sure to have plenty of Daisy on hand. In the summer when we switch to chips and sandwich dinners, it will make a great base for the sour cream and onion dip. I received a coupon for a free squeeze bottle of Daisy courtesy of Influenster. Opinions are my own.

I tried out this recipe tonight and the whole family loved it! It is a fairly simple recipe and I loved that the ingredients were pretty basic. I already had all of them without having to go to the grocery store which is always a plus. I will definitely be making this again. I tested Daisy Squeeze Sour Cream courtesy of Daisy and Influenster for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

I received a coupon in an Influenster box for a free Daisy sour cream product, I immediately went to the grocery store and bought all the ingredients I needed to make this recipe. It came out delicious and the Daisy sour cream I bought was the squeezable pouch and it's so convenient to use, I love it!

We love for taco Tuesday in our household! My family loves them some tacos and also quesadillas!!! Anything with cheese pretty much, these were a hit in our home and to top it off perfectly with daisy slit cream from the win! I love the squeeze option, so much easier and cleaner for all of us!!! The kids love that they can squeeze it out themselves with no mess! Win-win all the way around for all of us.

My family loves mexican food, and we love Taco Tuesday (and Taco Thursday.... :) ). We tried this twist. I've never made quesadillas before at home, but this was easy and delicious! And the squeeze tube of daisy was SO easy to use. I love sour cream and spooning it out is the hardest part. The squeeze bag made it easy to top the quesadilla with just the right amount. I will always get this from now on! I did have an opportunity to try this for free and all opinions are my own.

I had the opportunity to try Daisy sour cream for free and needed a good recipe to try it out on! We love this spin on taco Tuesday! I'd never tried to make quesadillas before at home, and this was good and easy to follow. I tried the squeeze daisy, and it changed my life! :) I will always get the squeeze tube from now on. Tasty and easy to use!

I received a free sample of daisy sour cream in exchange for my review, opinions are my own. I searched this site for a quick lunch for the family, and stumbled upon this gem! Great flavors, quick and easy, and topping it with Daisy sour cream makes it even better! Definitely recommend!

We made these for dinner tonight and they were quite yummy! I hate onions so I took those out and substituted the seasoning for regular taco seasoning and it was great! We used rotisserie chicken also. Not only did we love it, but so did our little picky eaters--a huge WIN in my book! I received a free sample of Daisy Sour Cream for testing purposes. All thoughts are my own.

Love this reciepe for quisadillas. The chicken and avacado work so well together. Adding the sour cream just made it so much better. I recieved a coupon for a free daisy brand squeeze tube and is made so much easier to get what I want.
