Quesadillas with a side of Chili Lime Butter Corn on the Cob


Last night’s dinner had to be easy, tasty and somewhat quick.  It was the Championship game for Dennis’ Thursday night softball league. The Fast & Furious had a great season and they were headed to the Championship game.  They came in 2nd, way to go guys!!!  After a six week break, they’ll start up again.

For dinner, the athlete was requesting a quesadilla before the big game. I decided to use the corn and wheat tortillas last night.  I used some plain chicken breast that had already been roasted.  I cut it into strips and sautéed it in some olive oil, chili lime rub, kosher salt, lime zest and the juice of one lime.

I shredded Colby jack cheese and placed some on the bottom tortilla. I added diced scallions, diced jalapeños (seeds and membrane removed), cowboy caviar that I bought already prepared from Trader Joe’s. You can find this in the aisle with their jarred salsas. I then topped this with a few strips of the chicken and a bit more shredded cheese and cooked it in a skillet with just enough olive oil to brown the tortilla. I topped the tortilla with light sour cream, chopped cilantro, diced jalapenos, and diced scallions.


For the corn on the cob, I whipped together a chli lime butter using the same chipotle lime seasoning I used on the chicken, and sea salt.  We just smeared this butter on the corn and sprinkled cilantro and a little more chili lime seasoning on the corn and that was it. Simple, yet yummy!

This was a great, quick dinner. I hope you enjoy!
