Chicken Quesabirria Recipe

  1. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the minced garlic and diced onions for two to three minutes, or until the onions become translucent.
  2. Incorporate finely sliced chicken breast into the pan. Blend in the chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook for approximately five to seven minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
  3. After scraping out any browned remains from the pan bottom, pour in the beef or chicken stock. Let the flavors combine and the liquid slightly diminish by reducing the heat to low and simmering for 10-15 minutes.
  4. In a separate pan, heat some oil over medium-high heat while the chicken simmers. Scatter shredded cheese over a corn tortilla before placing it in the griddle. Garnish with a dollop of the chicken mixture.
  5. A quesadilla is made by folding the tortilla in half. Allow two or three minutes of cooking time on each side, or until the tortilla becomes crisp and the cheese melts. Turn the tortillas and chicken mixture over.
  6. Serve the chicken quesabirria hot with lime wedges, fresh cilantro, and salsa or hot sauce on the side. Enjoy!
