Step 2 Add the shredded chicken to the tortilla and fold it over. If desired, add a sprinkle of shredded cheese as well to make a quesabirria taco. Make sure to use a good white melting cheese like quesadilla cheese, Oaxaca cheese, or Monterey jack. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until the taco is browned and crispy.
