A note about serious food allergies

Ranch goes on everything nowadays and we aren't too proud to say, that's a part of modernity we find most appealing. We've adapted ourselves well to the ranch universe we live in, using it on pork, chicken, and these tasty quesadillas. Cheesy, ranch-y goodness topped with a spicy corn salsa… we're not just on the ranch train, we're the conductor.

Roast in hot oven until chicken breasts reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 15-18 minutes. While chicken roasts, cook corn.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Corn

    Cook the Corn

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add corn to hot pan and stir often until lightly charred, 1-3 minutes. Transfer corn to a mixing bowl. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  • Step 3 - Prepare the Ingredients

  • Step 5 - Finish the Dish

    Finish the Dish
