Yield: six quesadillas

Ingredients:

1/4 c. fresh garlic, chopped fine
1/4 c. lime juice, fresh squeezed
1/4 c. salad oil
1/4 c. fresh chopped cilantro
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
1 lb. chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, butterflied
2 c. green bell pepper, cut into thin strips, cooked until tender
2 c. Spanish onions cut into thin strips, cooked until tender
1/2 c. red bell pepper. cut into thin strips, cooked until tender
12 each flour tortillas
1 c. ripe tomatoes cut into medium dice
3 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 c. fresh hot peppers, seeded and fine chopped
 


Procedure:
Combine the garlic, lime juice, oil, salt, pepper and sugar. Divide into two bowls and add the chicken, tossing until the chicken is coated. Marinate for at least 4 hours or for up to three days.

Sauté or grill the chicken until it is thoroughly cooked. Cut into thin strips and use immediately, or refrigerate and reheat when ready to serve.

Place a tortilla in the bottom of a no-stick frying pan over medium heat. Sprinkle with cheese, sliced chicken, onions, peppers, tomatoes and hot peppers, if desired. When the cheese begins to melt, fold over the tortilla gently so that the meat and vegetables stay inside. The quesadilla is done when it is lightly browned on both sides.

Cut into quarters and serve as an appetizer or lunch entree with your favorite salsa and Mexican condiments.
