Directions:

For the crema:

Blend sour cream, lime juice, lime zest, 1/2 of the tequila and adobo sauce well. Begin with a teaspoon of sauce and continue to add until you have reached desired level of spice and heat.

For quesadillas:

Place 1/2 tortillas on a flat surface. Divide shredded chicken, green onion and cheeses equally between all tortillas, spreading ingredients evenly.  Top with remaining half of the tortillas.

Place 2 quesadillas on a heated griddle (you may also do this in a large skillet or even in the oven). Allow to cook on medium heat until golden brown on the underside, approximately 2-4 minutes. Flip and allow to cook an additional 2-4 minutes.

Cut into wedges and serve with lettuce, tomato, avocado and crema.

Finally, lick your hand between your thumb and index finger. shake salt onto the licked area. Grab a lime wedge and the balance of the tequila. In one fluid motion, lick the salt from your hand, shoot the tequila and suck the lime wedge. It’s been a long day ūüôā
