Instructions

  1. Mix the Neufchatel cheese, cheddar cheese, chiles, cumin, and garlic powder together in a large bowl. Stir in the chicken. Spread the mixture onto 2 pieces of naan and sprinkle with cilantro. Top them with the remaining two pieces of naan.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with olive oil. Place one quesadilla in the skillet and cook 3-4 minutes until toasted and golden brown. Flip the quesadilla and cover the pan. Cook another 3-4 minutes until naan is toasted and cheese is melted. Repeat with the remaining quesadilla. Cut the quesadillas into 8 wedges each. Serve with salsa, diced avocado, and Greek yogurt or sour cream.
