Tuna Byscane Quesadillas

As a new mom, my mother was trying new recipes. This is how one day she decided to put the tuna biscayne style in a tortilla, fry it and add some lettuce. And bam! we had these delicious quesadillas and never looked back. This dish will change the way you think of tuna as “doll” and “cheap”. Prepare for a rich indulging experience, and if you are hosting, people will surely have seconds. Ingredients 1/4 Chopped onion 1 Chopped tomato 10 Chopped green olives 150 ml.

Poached pulled chicken 6 Tbsp. cooking oil 400 gr. Pulled chicken breast 250 gr. Sour cream 200 gr.

On one edge of the tortilla put a bit of pulled chicken and start rolling (like in the picture). Repeat with all the tortillas. Pour oil in a fryer pan and leave until hot. Add the rolled tacos with the edge down. Let it cook for 2 to 3 minutes before rolling over. Do as well with the rest of the tacos and put on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil. On a serving plate put 2 or 3 tacos and add the sour cream, the lettuce and the salsa on top....
