chicken quesadilla + hispanic rice

March 14, 2013



Angelica is an amazing mother who volunteers at an elementary school in Kennewick, WA. When I first tried Angelica’s chocolate flan, I was knocked off my feet. This lady really knows how to cook. She then made my family her tamales and I drool just thinking about them. For this blog she wanted to make her chicken quesadillas (couldn’t get the flan recipe out of her!). Angelica says she learned to cook from her mother in Mexico and cooking truly has always been her joy. She recently started cooking for schools, families, and businesses.  She loves to see the smile on people’s faces and to help them enjoy traditional Mexican dishes.

Remove the skin from the chicken and rinse, cut the chicken thighs in small pieces, put in the blender the rest of the ingredients and pour over chicken.
