You can never have too many Mexican recipes, so give Pecan Quesadillan From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes about 10 minutes. A mixture of pecans, havarti cheese, pear preserves, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so flavorful.
Sprinkle 1 side of tortilla with cheese and pecans. Fold in half over filling. Cook quesadilla in a lightly greased skillet over medium-high heat 2 minutes on each side or until cheese melts and tortilla is golden brown.
Cut into wedges, and serve with pear preserves.
Recommended wine: Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sparkling Rose
Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé are my top picks for Mexican. Acidic white wines like riesling or low-tannin reds like pinot noir can work well with Mexican dishes. Sparkling rosé is a safe pairing too. The Dragonette Cellars Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir with a 4.8 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 45 dollars per bottle.
Dragonette Cellars Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir2016 was another in a string of terrific vintages in Santa Barbara. We had another early budbreak, and (unlike 2015) perfect weather during set, allowing for a strong, balanced crop. May, June and July were quite warm and ripening was fairly quick; however, an unseasonably cool August slowed the vines considerably. For the winemaker it was almost ideal, as the grapes were able to complete ripening slowly, without heat spikes, and the grapes maintained excellent acidity. Over a series of cool mornings, we picked each block at near perfect ripeness and balance. The wines appear to have great fruit character, fresh acidity and tannic structure and solid depth.
