CINCO DE MAYO- DUCK QUESADILLAS RECIPE

CINCO DE MAYO- DUCK QUESADILLAS RECIPE
Have some duck meat left over from duck hunting season? Well, it the fifth of May and here is a waterfowl recipe you may like and kick back and enjoy and you might as well have some Margaritas at the same time!

Duck Quesadilla
  • 1 lb. boneless Duck breast meat
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 (1 oz.) pkg. dry fajita seasoning mix
  • 10 (10-inch) Corn or flour tortillas
  • 8 oz. Sargento fine shredded 4-cheese Mexican
  • 1 tbsp. bacon bits
  • 1 onion chopped 
  • 2 peppers, chopped

Preheat the broiler. Cut the duck meat that you got while hunting into small cubes and prepare with the fajita seasoning mix. Broil 5 minutes, or until duck is just a little pink on the inside or the meat reaches 165 degrees. Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Mix in the seasoned duck, onion & pepper. Slowly cook and stir for 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Layer 1/2 of each tortilla with duck mixture, cheese, and desired amount of bacon bits. Top with cheese. Fold the tortillas. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Serve with Refried beans and Spanish rice and chase it all down with some Margaritas
Perfect Margarita
  • 1 lime, cut into 6 wedges
  • Coarse salt
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 3/4 cups tequila
  • 1/4 cup Cointreau
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons Lyme syrup


To salt-rim the glasses, rub a cut lime around the rim of each glass. Fill a saucer with salt, and dip each glass, upside down, into the salt. Set aside. Fill a blender jar three-quarters full of ice cubes. Pour tequila, Cointreau, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and syrup over the ice. Begin blending on low, then increase the speed to high, until the ice is very finely chopped and the mixture is frothy. Taste for sweetness, adding more syrup if necessary. Blend a few seconds more, and pour into the salt-rimmed glasses. Serve immediately. I hope you enjoy this waterfowl and margarita recipe.
