Spicy Chicken & Cheese Quesadillas

Spicy mexican inspired food pairs really nicely with Sauvignon Blanc. I made these quesadillas for my Sauvignon Blanc Wine & Dine event so that everyone can taste how spicy food reactives with the wine.

Spicy Chicken & Cheese Quesadillas
2 lbs chicken breast, diced
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1 teaspoon lime zest

2-3 cloves minced garlic

1 medium onion, chopped

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 cup sliced green onions

1-2 diced jalepeno peppers

6 burrito sized flour tortillas

olive oil for cooking
cooking oil spray

In a pan, brown chicken in some olive oil.
Add all the seasonings, garlic and onion.

Add lime zest and juice.

Allow the chicken to cool slightly.

Preheat oven to 400.
To prepare the quesadillas, spray cooking spray on one side of tortilla.

Place sprayed side down on a baking sheet.

Fold tortilla in half.

Open up the folded tortilla like a book and add chicken to lightly cover one half.

Sprinkle cheese over the chicken.

Sprinkle with sliced green onions.
Close tortilla.
Repeat with other tortillas.

Place in preheated oven and bake for 7-10 minutes or until browned.
