How to make it

  1. Begin by shredding the chicken. If it’s still on the bone, remove all the meat and break it up into small pieces.
  2. Heat a frying pan on a medium heat. Once hot, place a tortilla into the pan.
  3. Add half of the chicken on top of the tortilla in the pan, followed by half of the chopped mozzarella, half the grated cheddar and half of the coriander.
  4. Finally, add another tortilla on top. Be careful not to burn the bottom tortilla. When beginning to brown, use a spatula to carefully flip the whole thing and crisp up the other side. You might need to reduce the heat to stay in control.
  5. The cheeses will eventually melt. At this point, it’s ready. Remove from the pan.
  6. Repeat the steps to make a second quesadilla and keep warm in the oven on low.
  7. Now you can quickly make the guacamole and salsa.
  8. Salsa first: In a bowl, add the tomatoes, onion and coriander, olive oil, Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste and a generous sprinkle of salt & pepper. Mix well.
  9. Guacamole: Cut avocado in half and remove stone. Scoop out flesh with a spoon and roughly mash in a bowl with a fork (a few lumps are nice).
  10. Add the coriander and red onion. Add the lime juice and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mix well.
  11. When ready to serve, remove the top tortilla from each quesadilla and spread the Gran Luchito Chipotle Mayo onto the underside before replacing on top of the filling.
  12. Cut the quesadillas into quarters and serve with the guacamole and salsa.
