Pepper Jack, Chicken, and Peach Quesadillas



I think if I had to be any food, it would be a quesadilla. I mean, is it even possible not to like quesadillas? They are about the most friendly food in the world, they practically smile at you with that crispy rounded tortilla. Not to mention the fact that they are filled with whatever fabulous ingredient you want, bound together by gooey, melty, cheese. No utensils required, the quesadilla doesn't require any work on your part. You get to use your hands, and you don't even mind that your fingers are dripping with those wonderful juices and oils when your done.

Being a quesadilla also mean continuously donning a new outfit with different meats, cheeses and tortillas. Sometimes you go simple with a plain flour tortilla and cheddar cheese. And other times you get a little funky, like spicy pepper jack, juicy shredded chicken and sweet ripe peaches. Talk about dressing for a party! And don't be afraid to try this combo on for size. It might sound a little daring, but it comes together wonderfully, and the honey lime sauce on the top is the perfect accessory to bring the whole thing together. So if you're looking for an old favorite with a bit of a twist, head over here for the recipe. I hope you like it as much as I did!
