Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

A long time ago....in a galaxy far, far away...we lived in California. And one of our favorite restaurants to go to was Chevy's. We loved their chips and salsa. In fact, if you scroll through my recipes you'll find my version of their salsa.  One thing that I loved to order at Chevy's was something on the menu that I've never seen anywhere else. I don't even remember what they called it but I remember what it tasted like. So I decided to recreate it in my kitchen. This quesadilla was just so light and fresh tasting. As you know...we LOVE Mexican food around here but usually it's more substantial. But this? This is not. And the nice thing about this is that you can add more of whatever you like. Are you a carnivore? Add more chicken. Like fruit? Add extra apple? Go vegetarian if you want! But one thing you don't want to leave out is the jalapeno jelly that goes with it!! Make sure you have that! I've left a recipe for it, or you can buy it premade! It absolutely MAKES this dish perfection!

Sweet and Savory Quesadillas

For one serving:

One burrito sized flour tortilla
1/2 cup shredded chicken
3 - 4 thin slices of granny smith apple
6 - 8 thin slices of brie or Camembert cheese

One one side of your tortilla, lay 3 - 4 slices of cheese. Add chicken and apples and top with more cheese.

Grill until cheese has melted and tortilla is lightly browned.

Serve with pepper jelly!

Layer everything on a tortilla. 
Begin and end with cheese...
that holds all the stuff together!

I use my Foreman to grill it, 
but you can use a skillet or grill pan.
