No Fail Beer and Bar Food Pairings

While we love enjoying Weed Cellars beers on their own, they are also easily paired with foods. Weed Light’s creamy texture and light body refreshes your palate between bites, while the complexity of the flavors of Weed Golden Ale allow it to complement a myriad of food flavors.


Looking for inspiration for what to serve with your Weed Cellars beers this summer? Here are three easy-to-make recipes that won’t miss.

Chicken Quesadillas

Servings: 2
Total Time: 15 minutes
 
Ingredients:
2 8” soft flour tortillas
1½ cups shredded Cheddar Jack cheese
¾ lb boneless chicken breasts
1 green bell pepper, diced
½ yellow onion, diced
½ tsp ground cumin
2 dashes + ½ tsp salt
2 dashes + ½ tsp pepper
olive oil
2 limes, for serving
salsa, for serving
 
Directions:
  1. Dice the chicken breasts into small cubes and rub with 2 dashes of salt and 2 dashes of pepper. Add olive oil to a medium skillet over medium heat and sauté the chicken until it is thoroughly cooked. Set aside.
  2. To the same skillet, add the green bell pepper and onion, and cook until soft. Set aside.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add a flour tortilla. Top half the tortilla with 3/8 cup shredded cheese. Evenly spread ½ of the cooked chicken and ½ of the green bell pepper and onion mixture over the half with the cheese. Sprinkle ¼ teaspoon cumin, ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper evenly over the chicken and vegetables. Fold the side of the tortilla without ingredients over and press lightly. Cook the folded tortilla on both sides, until golden. Repeat this process with the second flour tortilla.
  4. Prepare two limes and salsa, for serving.
