See below for purchase and order info for these four succulent sauces: Tequi-Lime ®, O’Rumba, O’Plum Sesame, Teriyaki Sake

6 8” flour tortillas
2 Tbsp vegetable oil or melted butter
5 oz grated Jalapeno Jack cheese (or a mix of goat and Jack cheese)
¼ cup finely chopped red onion
½ roasted red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 tsp minced fresh cilantro (more or less as desired)
5 oz cooked shrimp or shredded cooked chicken
1 papaya, seeded and finely chopped
Tequi-Lime ® Sauce

In a medium bowl, mix together cheese, onion, red bell pepper, cilantro,shrimp or chicken, papaya and salt and pepper to taste. Generously brush Tequi-Lime ® Sauce over tortillas. Place filling in a half circle on each tortilla – do not put filling any closer than ½” to the outer edge; fold tortillas in half.

Brush tortillas with oil or butter. Place on a bbq preheated to medium-high (lightly oil rack just before cooking) or in a preheated lightly oiled grill pan or nonstick skillet. Cook each tortilla 2-3 minutes on each
side or until golden brown. Serve with additional Tequi-Lime ® Sauce.

Bon appetit!
Chef Ann
