Food for Thursday... Fruity and Hot! (Not that there is anything wrong with that!)

This is the time of the year for strawberries. So, in keeping with doing something different, like BOB releasing a depth chart in June, I was trying to come up with a post that is different from the regular procession of jam, preserves, pie, and shortcake recipes.

Then I remembered visiting Anaheim many moons ago (I swear to God, Disneyland was closed, and we were not convicted of terrorizing the rollercoaster operator). We had lunch at a local pub owned by a Chinese guy who was married to a Latino gal from New Mexico. He served his quesadilla with a spicy chicken, onion, black bean and queso fresco mixture, and topped it all off with a chunky, chile-laden strawberry hot sauce. This week, I tried to replicate the hot sauce and this dish. I ended up with a few other treats as well!

Gotta love those Chinese-Mexicans! Starting off with reconstituted guajillo chiles and some cayenne pepper to provide heat to a strawberry concoction....

We get a sauce for a truly delicious sweet, hot 'n spicy, Grilled Chicken, Vidalia Onion, Black Bean & Queso Fresco Quesadilla with Strawberry-Guajillo Chile Sauce:

This sauce also works great drizzled on ribs for a change of pace BBQ dish this time of year:

and, is a magnificent base for a Strawberry-Guajillo Ice Cream, as well as a great dessert topping!

Long Live SWEET HEAT!
