Bombers Burrito Bar

Bombers Burrito Bar, in both Albany and Schenectady, is pretty amazing.  My favorite thing to order is the Island Quesadilla - A grilled 12-inch flour tortilla folded over cheese, onions, jalapenos, crumbled blue cheese & pineapple chunks. Filled with smoked chicken and covered in our ranchero wing sauce. Served with a side of ranch dressing

The Quesadilla is pretty hefty and its so delicious, Pete and I recreated them at home one night.  Tonight I made something very similar, using these ingredients, plus chicken and tortilla shells.

First, I marinated 2 pieces of chicken (I always use boneless, skinless chicken thighs) in a lil bit Tabasco sauce and Pineapple juice.  I then cut it up into pieces and pan fried it until it was cooked, then dumped in the pineapple.  (I used a pineapple fruit cup).  

In another frying pan coated with PAM I put down one tortilla shell.  On it I put crumbled bleu cheese and jalapenos and drizzled it with some spicy BBQ sauce and Ranch dressing. 

Then I spooned on the chicken and  pineapple, and covered it with some more crumbled bleu cheese... and a tiny bit more BBQ sauce, because its so amazingly delicious!

  I covered it with the other tortilla shell, cooked it, flipped it, and it was done. I didn't serve it with salsa or sour cream, because it really doesn't need any type of dipping sauce, its that's damn good on its own!

On a different note, Rocket dog really wants a stove!


  1. This is a flavour combination I haven't really ever considered trying! I would probably edit it as bit (no blue cheese for me, thank you very much!) but it looks really good regardless!

  2. It is quite the interesting flavor combo, but it works and is so yummy!! Let me know if you make it and what you put into it, Im always up for eating new things!
