Chicken & Peach Quesadilla

IMG_1618It is peach season!  These peaches need a little lime to help their flavor stand up to all that is going on in here.  If your peaches aren’t quite ripe yet, just add a bit of sugar, a teaspoon at a time. The less you cook the veggies the more flavor pop  they have!  Also more nutrients remain in your food.  So really you can leave them fresh and skip step one. Just top with lime and marinate while you prep everything else.

Quesadillas are brilliantly fast and a great way to use your leftovers.  You can add heat with Jalepenos or Chiles in adobo sauce.  BBQ sauce creates a warm zingy backgound note in this quick bit, but totally unnecessary!

Why Queso Fresco?  It is salty and light and pings those peaches so nicely in your mouth…mmmmm.  You could also do the traditional shredded cheeses, Mexican blend, Colby jack, Gouda shredded, Mozzarella would be fantastic in there.
