Author's Notes

If you're using an outdoor grill and find that those pesky corn kernels and chicken chunks keep falling out through the grates, try wrapping each individual quesadilla in foil and grilling them in its packaging. Using an indoor grill pan it's easier to nudge the filling back into its shell without losing the whole thing.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Heat a grill over medium high heat. Cook the Corn Cob (3) rotating occasionally, until cooked through and charred in spots on the outside.
Step 2
Place the chicken on a work surface. Drizzle with Olive Oil (to taste) and season with Salt (to taste) and Ancho Chili Powder (to taste). Grill over medium-high heat, for 5 minutes on each side, rotating 90 degrees halfway through cooking to get a nice crosshatch.
Step 3
Allow the Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thigh (2) to rest for 5 minutes.
Step 4
In a mixing bowl, combine Mayonnaise (1/2 cup), Garlic (1 clove), Lime Juice (1 tablespoon), Fresh Cilantro (1/4 cup), finely crumbled Cotija Cheese (1/4 cup), Ancho Chili Powder (to taste). Reserve 1/2 the sauce.
Step 5
Cut the corn off the cob and add to the bowl with the remaining sauce. Finely dice the Chicken and add to the corn. Toss until well-combined.
Step 6
Arrange a thin layer of the chicken mixture on one half of the White Corn Tortilla (12). Top with a tablespoon of Cheddar Cheese (1 cup) and fold the tortillas in half.
Step 7
Grill the tortillas until crispy and charred, about 2 minutes per side, rotating 90 degrees halfway through to get a nice crosshatch. Cut in half and serve alongside the remaining sauce, and Cotija Cheese (1/4 cup).
