To prepare quesadillas:
COMBINE chicken, Southwest Spice Blend, and 1 tsp. Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a large non-stick skillet, over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, 5-7 mins. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
ASSEMBLE each quesadilla by spreading ¼ cup cheese on top half of 1 tortilla. Top with 1 cup chicken and finally an additional ¼ cup cheese. Fold empty half of tortilla over top and press down slightly.
WIPE skillet clean, return to a medium-high heat.
SPRAY pan thoroughly with non-stick cooking spray.
WHEN pan is hot, reduce heat to medium, and add 1 quesadilla (2 if pan is large enough), cover and cook 1-2 mins. on each side (turning over carefully), until cheese has melted and tortillas are golden.
TRANSFER to a cutting board and cut into 3 or 4 wedges.

Meat...grilled. Simply put, that’s Carne Asada. Traditionally, hanger, skirt, or flank steak is often the cut chosen because each take marinade well, cook fast, and taste great. To maximize flavor, this recipe uses a citrus-based marinade followed by a rub featuring our Carne Asada spice blend. The rub is applied liberally just before grilling so it’s not left behind in the marinade. A classic go-to for tacos or burritos, but just as delicious on sandwiches, salads, or even steak and eggs.
