Yield:
4 servings (serving size: 1 quesadilla)

Chorizo, smoked pork sausage spiced with cumin and garlic, is often used in Spanish cooking.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage to pan; sauté 1 minute. Stir in chicken; sauté 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove sausage mixture from pan; set aside. Wipe pan with a paper towel.

Step 2

Sprinkle half of each tortilla with 3 tablespoons cheese; top with 1/4 cup sausage mixture, 2 tablespoons mango, and 1 teaspoon cilantro. Carefully fold tortillas in half, pressing gently to seal.

Step 3

Return pan to medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 2 filled tortillas to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Repeat with cooking spray and remaining filled tortillas. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons salsa and 1 tablespoon sour cream. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.

Really great flavors in this one. The mango was such a great addition, and honestly I could have done without the chorizo and not even noticed. It was very easy to make too, which is an added perk.

So-so, I didn't think it was all that special, didn't help that my mango was not completely ripe.

I will definitely make this again. It was easy to put together, yet not your boring average quesadilla. I had never cooked with chorizo before and found it a little tough to chop, but it was a wonderful addition and went well with the mango.

Really nice mix of flavors. The mango is a great addition. Used chicken chorizo to make it healthier. Also used Paul Newman's black bean and corn salsa - it was great with this dish.

Great tasting, easy to make. Best ever!!! The dish took about 15 minutes to make. It is perfect for a casual dinner or get together.

I have made these 4 times in the last 2 weeks, my fiance LOVES them.. the mango flavor really brings a tangy brightness to the sausage (we used Jalapeno Chicken sausage, no chorizo on hand). Will make over and over.
