Southwestern Chicken Quesadillas

Ingredients
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 small boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and halved lengthwise
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and halved lengthwise
  • 4 slices of red onion
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1¾ cups Black Diamond Shredded Tacos and Nachos
Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Combine 2 tbsp of oil, the chili powder, cumin, and salt and mix well. Brush mixture over all sides of chicken, peppers, and onion.
  3. Grill chicken and vegetables over medium coals for 5 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender. Once cooked, transfer to chopping board and cut chicken and peppers into bite-sized chunks; separate onion slices into rings.
  4. Brush remaining oil over one side of each tortilla. Place 4 tortillas oiled sides down on cookie sheet. Combine chicken, vegetables, and Black Diamond Shredded Tacos and Nachos cheese; divide mixture over tortillas and top with remaining tortillas, oiled sides up.
  5. Bake for 6 minutes or until golden brown on bottom. Use a large spatula to turn quesadillas over. Continue baking until tops are golden brown, another 2 minutes. Cut into quarters.

Give Yourself to the Dark Side

Pair deeper, malty beers with nutty, aged cheeses. Try pairing a sturdy stout with old cheddar cheese.

Find Common Ground Between Wines and Cheeses

Wine and cheese from the same regions make very good pairings. Following this idea, try pairing Black Diamond cheese with wines from Ontario’s Prince Edward County.
