Santa Fe Sizzling Skillet

Cheese quesadillas, fajita chicken and grilled onions topped with Monterey Jack cheese and smothered in a mild roasted Hatch green chile sauce. Served on a sizzling skillet.

This one is pretty easy to create at home. The secret is all in the sauce.
Make your quesadillas. Set aside. Cook your chicken and onions in fajita marinade. Remove and set aside.

Green Chili Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons corn oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 cups roasted new mexican green chilies, peeled/seeded/chopped
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt

In heavy-bottomed sauce pan, saute onions in corn oil until they begin to brown.
Add garlic and cook another 2 minutes.
Stir flour in with onions and garlic so that it thickens.
Add chopped chilies, beef broth and salt and mix well.
Bring to a boil and simmer 10 to 15 minutes to allow mixture to reduce.
The sauce should be thick enough to bind chilies and onions together.
Sauce can be refrigerated for three days, or frozen

Makes 4 cups.

Layer the quesadillas on the bottom of an oven proof skillet.
Top with sliced chicken and onions.
Add a good helping of Mexican cheese blend over the chicken.
Place under a broiler and cook until the cheese melts.
Serve this dish in the skillet for a nice restaurant presentation.
