Ingredients 

1 tablespoons olive oil, divided

3 (1/3 pound each) Gold’n Plump® Chicken Patties, Tex Mex Flavor

3 medium plum tomatoes, diced (1/4-inch pieces)

1/4 cup finely chopped white or green onion

1 small jalapeno chile, finely chopped

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1 tablespoon lime juice

1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded marble Jack cheese

6 (6-inch) flour tortillas

Instructions 

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add frozen patties; cook 7 to 8 minutes per side or until lightly browned and no longer pink in center.

Meanwhile, mix tomatoes, onion, chile, cilantro, and lime juice to make a fresh salsa.

Lay 3 tortillas out on work surface. Sprinkle each with 1/4 cup cheese, top with a cooked burger, a spoonful of salsa, and another 1/4 cup cheese. Lay remaining tortillas on top.

Carefully transfer first burger stack to the large skillet, over medium heat. Toast for about 2 minutes; turn over with a wide spatula. Toast 2 to 3 minutes longer or until tortillas are golden brown and cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining burger stacks. Serve quesadilla burgers with any remaining salsa.
