Grilled Chicken Quesadilla Sandwich

Serves 4

Cook Time: 25 - 30 minutes

Flavors of the Southwest and Eastern Europe combine in this unique recipe to boast an amazingly sumptuous sandwich. While the familiar tastes of a Quesadilla make up the base to this dish, they are enhanced by the smokiness of the grill, smoked Chipotle peppers, and a rich, yet refreshing Ajvar relish of Red Bell Peppers, Eggplant and Garlic. Toss aside the tortillas and dig in!

This Grilled Chicken Quesadilla Sandwich by Damon Holter, Croix Valley Foods, was a Top 10 Winner at the 2014 World Sandwich Championships.
