Description

A spicy twist on a Mexican classic!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE QUESADILLAS:
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil, Or As Needed
  • ½ whole Onion, Sliced
  • 2 whole Banana Peppers Sliced
  • 1 whole Chicken Breast
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Paprika
  • Salt And Pepper
  • 2 cups Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 3 whole Flour Tortillas
  • FOR THE CHIPOTLE SAUCE:
  • ¼ cups Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Vinegar
  • 1 whole Chipotle In Adobo
  • Salt And Pepper

Preparation

In a large frying pan, heat olive oil until warm. Add onions and peppers and cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Slice chicken breast into strips. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, and pepper, coating both sides evenly.

In the same frying pan you used to saute the onions and peppers, now add chicken and cook until done, about 5 minutes depending on the size of your strips. Remove from heat and chop into smaller pieces.

Assemble quesadillas by combining 1/3 of cheese, chicken, and peppers/onions into each tortilla. Cook until the cheese melts, about 3 minutes on each side.

For the chipotle sauce, combine mayonnaise, olive oil, vinegar, chipotle, salt, and pepper (to taste) and mix thoroughly. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.

Serve sauce on top of or on the side of quesadillas.
