Prep Time
Cook Time

Step 1

Whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking powder and chili powder. In separate bowl, whisk together Truly Lemonade Hard Seltzer and egg. Gradually whisk into flour mixture (do not overmix; batter will be slightly lumpy).

Step 2

Pour 3 inches of oil into large saucepan. Heat over medium heat until instant-read thermometer reaches 375°F.

Step 3

One at a time, dip chicken tenders into batter, then slowly add to hot oil. Cook, in batches, for 3 to 4 minutes or until crispy and chicken is cooked through. Transfer to paper towel–lined plate; sprinkle with salt. Chop into pieces.

Step 4

Sprinkle half of the Cheddar cheese evenly over tortillas, leaving 1/2-inch border. Scatter chopped chicken, red bell pepper, jalapeño and green onions over top; sprinkle with remaining Cheddar cheese. Cap with remaining tortillas to enclose filling.

Step 5

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in large skillet set over medium heat; cook quesadillas, in batches, for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until golden and cheese is melted, adding remaining oil as needed. Cut quesadillas into wedges. Serve with salsa for dipping and enjoy!


Serve with other favorites too, like guacamole or sour cream!
