Guest Chef on Casaculinarian.com Maurice Flores- Signature Sandwich Recipe-
“Chicken Fajita Quesadilla”
I worked with our Guest Chef for almost 17 years… He truly is as good as anyone I know…
Recipe is for two Quesadilla’s
large flour tortilla shells 4
boneless cleaned and rinsed chicken breast 1
red bell pepper 1 cut into strips
onion yellow 1/2 cut into slices
cheddar cheese 8 oz. four for each quesadilla
Pico de Gallo 1/8 cup
on the side- guacamole, sour cream, and classic salsa
salt and pepper for taste
Goya Sazon seasoning 1/2 teaspoon
fresh cilantro chopped 1 tablespoon
olive oil 1 tablespoon
In a glass bowl add chicken breast and above ingredients. Mix ingredients over chicken and let marinate for 15 minutes. Grill or Sear and place in the oven until cooked. 165 internal degrees. Set aside.
Sauté onions and peppers with salt and pepper for taste in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Leave them al dente.
On a flat griddle place on 300 degrees. Spray lightly with cooking spray, then add 1 tablespoon of butter to the griddle. When it starts to melt use a paper towel to spread it out. Add 2 flour tortilla’s to the griddle. Add 4 oz. of cheese spread out on both shells. Slice your chicken and spread out on both shells. Do the same with your pepper, onions, and Pico de Gallo. Place a cover (another tortilla shell on top of each). Add a plate on top of both as a weight. Cook 2 minutes on both sides. Serve with Guacamole, Sour Cream, and Salsa.
Thanks Chef Maurice.
