You've Never Had a Quesadilla Like This!



Quesadillas are one of those super simple meals that are easy to put together... but, it is always fun to jazz things up. The marinade is enough to make at least 4, or 2-3 chickens. I made this for myself using shrimp, so feel free to mix it up however you like! Just one quick tip, after you have baked it, set the oven to broil and let the top brown a bit for a bit of an extra crunch! Cheers guys and happy eating!!!




Quesadilla recipe

Marinade:
1 garlic clove
1/4 cup canola oil
3 TB lime juice
3 TB red wine vinegar
2 TB honey
sprinkle of cilantro
1.5-2 tspn cumin
1.5-2 tspn chili powder
chipoltle peppers in adobe, to taste (I use at least one)
salt
pepper

Blend all ingredients in a small blender. Use half the mixture to marinade protein, reserve the other half for when you assemble your quesadilla.

Topping:
1/2 yellow onion (if you are making four, use the whole thing)

Saute in oil with adobe peppers, salt, pepper.

Quesadillas:
Tortilla shells
Mexican shredded cheese
Gruyere or Gouda Cheese
Onions
Chicken, cut into strips
Sprinkle of the marinade
Shredded Cilantro

Start with sprinkling Mexican cheese on one tortilla shells. Add the onion and chicken strips. Add about 2 tablespoons of the marinade, followed with some cilantro and lastly with a generous amount of Gruyere cheese.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 5-7 minutes. Finally, set the oven to broil and let the top brown for a minute.
