    Mango Relish

    Fruit servings aren’t high on the priority foods list of most men so I’m always looking for ways to slip in a serving here and there. Mangoes are rich in antioxidants and vitamins and red bell peppers pack a punch of vitamin C—even more than oranges! Use this relish as another dipping option, to serve on the side with burgers, or to use with any Mexican dish.

    2 mangos, peeled and finely diced
    1/2 cup (125 mL) red bell pepper, finely chopped
    3 green onions, thinly sliced
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) Italian parsley, chopped
    Juice of 1 lime
    1 tsp (5 mL) dark brown natural sugar

    In a small bowl, combine mangoes, bell pepper, green onions, and parsley. Pour juice over mixture and add sugar. Stir again and refrigerate until ready to serve.

    Serves 4.

    Waffled Chicken Quesadillas with Chipotle Pepper Sauce

    These whimsical weeknight quesadillas offer a great excuse to break out the long-forgotten waffle iron. The smoky, tangy pepper sauce is the perfect sidekick for this dish, but it’s also wonderful when tossed with pasta, stuffed into sandwiches, and slathered on burgers. TIP : When assembling quesadillas, keep fillings centred 1/2 in (1.25 cm) from the edge of the tortilla so they don’t spill over. TIP : Chipotle chiles are dried, smoked jalapenos. Adobo is a slightly sweet red sauce. Put them together in a can and they become a versatile pantry staple to add deep smoky heat to sauces, dips, marinades, and soups. No waffle iron? Then make these quesadillas using this skillet method. Place 1 tortilla in skillet, preferably cast iron, and cook over medium heat until dark spots appear and bottom is crispy, about 1 1/2 minutes. Turn over and cook until crispy and darkened on the other side. Remove tortilla from skillet and replace with another tortilla. Cook until darkened and crispy on one side, flip, and top with stuffing ingredients. Place crispy tortilla on top, press down gently, cover pan, and cook for 1 minute, or until cheese has melted.
