  • 1 pound chicken breasts, cooked shredded
  • cup barbecue sauce
  • ¼ cup red onion finely chopped
  • 8 ounces vegan cheese I used Daiya Smoked Gouda Block, sliced thin
  • 4 gluten free tortillas
  • 2 Tablespoons vegan buttery spread


  1. Place some vegan buttery spread in the pan for frying, and heat over medium heat.
  2. Place the shredded chicken and barbecue sauce in a bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Once the frying pan is hot, place a tortilla in it. Place some sliced cheese on one half of the tortilla.
  4. Add the barbecue chicken and some red onion, then layer on some more cheese.
  5. Fold over the tortilla.
  6. Cook on one side until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Flip over and finish cooking on the other side.
  7. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  8. Serve with guacamole or salsa.

Recipe Notes

You can use any type of dairy free cheese that works for you.

Depending on the size of your tortillas, you may need more or less chicken. If you have too much chicken, just make an extra quesadilla or two.
