Pepper Jack, Chicken and Peach Quesadillas

“A delish and fast recipe using leftover chicken from Cooking Light August 2010. I really enjoyed these made with leftover turkey breast and I am sure chicken will be just as wonderful. They say, "Give average chicken quesadillas new life with sweet peaches and spicy cheese. For the kids, try Monterey Jack instead."”

Directions

  1. Combine honey and lime juice in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Stir sour cream into honey mixture; cover and chill until ready to serve.
  2. Place tortillas flat on a work surface. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese over half of each tortilla; top each tortilla with 1/4 cup chicken, 1/4 cup peaches, 1 teaspoon cilantro and 1 more tablespoon of cheese. Fold tortillas in half.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Place 2 quesadillas in the pan, and top quesadillas with a cast-iron or other heavy skillet. Cook 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until tortillas are crisp and lightly browned (leave cast-iron skillet on quesadillas as they cook). Remove quesadillas from pan; set aside, and keep warm. Repeat procedure with the remaining quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla into wedges. Serve with sauce.
