Follow these simple steps to create your very own Blooming Quesadilla Ring:


  1. Preheat the oven to 375˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cooked and shredded chicken, chopped onion, red bell pepper, chopped jalapeño, and taco sauce. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Cut each taco-size tortilla in half. On each tortilla half, add about 2 tablespoons each of shredded cheddar cheese, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, and the chicken mixture.
  4. Roll the tortillas into cones, starting from the cut edge. Be sure not to push the ingredients out of the tortilla.
  5. Place a wide mouth jar or glass in the center of the baking sheet. Arrange about 13 tortilla cones around the jar, with their points in the center and touching the jar.
  6. Sprinkle a layer of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese over the arranged tortilla cones. Repeat the layering process, creating two more layers and finishing with the remaining cheeses.
  7. Carefully remove the jar from the center of the tortilla arrangement.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the edges of the tortillas are crispy.
  9. Gently transfer the Blooming Quesadilla Ring to a serving platter. Fill the center with your dip of choice and top with desired garnishes.
  10. Serve the Blooming Quesadilla Ring immediately and enjoy the culinary masterpiece you’ve created!
