Cheesy Chicken-Chile Quesadillas

Directions

  1. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, flatten chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap until 1/2 inch thick. For rub, in a small bowl stir together cumin, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Sprinkle mixture over chicken; rub in with your fingers.
  2. Grill chile peppers, uncovered, over medium heat 15 minutes or until charred, turning occasionally. Remove from grill and wrap in foil. Grill chicken, covered, 8 to 11 minutes or until done (165 degrees F), turning once.
  3. Cut chile peppers in half lengthwise; remove stems and seeds.* Peel off and discard skins. Cut peppers into 1-inch strips. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces.
  4. In a large bowl combine chile peppers, chicken, and both cheeses. Spoon chicken mixture onto half of each tortilla. Fold tortilla in half; press firmly. Grill quesadillas, uncovered, over medium heat 4 minutes or until heated through and light brown, turning once.
