Mango, Chicken and Chorizo Quesadillas
by Chef Deedle

Not all sandwiches come with two slices of bread – try tortillas!

1 link (4 oz.) Spanish Chorizo, diced
1 ½ cups shredded deli chicken, or cooked chicken breast
4 8-inch flour tortillas
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
1 cup chopped, peeled mango
4 tsps. chopped cilantro, plus additional for garnish (optional)
Cooking spray or butter
½ cup salsa
½ cup sour cream

Heat a large nonstick skillet over med-high heat. Add sausage and sauté two minutes. Stir in chicken; sauté two minutes longer or until heated through.

Remove sausage mixture from the pan and set aside. Wipe the pan with a paper towel.

Sprinkle half of each tortilla with cheese and top with ¼ cup of sausage mixture, 2 tablespoons of mango and 1 teaspoon of cilantro. Fold tortilla in half, pressing gently to seal.

Return pan to medium heat. Coat with cooking spray or butter. Add two filled tortillas to pan and cook for two minutes on each side or until lightly browned.

Repeat with more spray and remaining tortillas. Top each with 2 tablespoons of salsa and a tablespoon of sour cream. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.
