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. Tip: Easiest way to remove jalapeño ribs and seeds: remove ends, then hold upright. Carefully slice the pepper into four pieces, leaving ribs and seed to discard.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using customized protein, do not roast. Cook in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat with 1 tsp. olive oil.

  • If using steak strips, separate into a single layer, pat dry, and coarsely chop. Stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, break up burger into smaller pieces until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Roast the Chicken

    Pat chicken breasts dry. Drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil and season both sides with a pinch of pepper.

    Place chicken on prepared baking sheet and roast in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 17-20 minutes.

    Carefully remove baking sheet from oven. Let chicken cool, at least 5 minutes.

    While chicken roasts, cook corn.

  2. 2

    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.

    Remove from burner. Transfer corn to a mixing bowl. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  3. 3

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Salsa

    Mince cilantro (no need to stem).

    Halve lime. Juice one half and cut other half into quarters.

    Stem jalapeño, halve, seed, remove ribs, and mince. Wash hands and cutting board after working with jalapeño.

    Add jalapeño (to taste), cilantro, 1 tsp. lime juice, 1 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt to bowl with corn and stir to combine. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Assemble the Quesadillas

    Once cool enough to handle, slice cooked chicken thinly. Combine chicken and seasoning blend in another mixing bowl until chicken is coated.

    Place tortillas on a clean work surface. On one half of tortillas, evenly distribute half the cheese, then chicken, then remaining cheese. Fold tortilla over cheese and chicken.

  5. 5

    Cook Quesadillas and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook corn to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil to hot pan. Working in batches, place two or three quesadillas in pan (there should be no overlap). Cook until golden brown, 2-4 minutes per side.

    Repeat with remaining quesadillas, adding 1 tsp. olive oil for each batch.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with corn salsa. Squeeze lime wedges over quesadillas to taste. Serve sour cream on the side for dipping. Bon appétit!
