mexican chimichanga with tequila sauza
The very traditional Mexican quesadilla but with a modern twist, a Casa Sauza twist. What makes this quesadilla a delight is its combination of roquefort cheese, crab, pork rind and guava sauce. Pair this dish with a 100 Años White Tequila from Casa Sauza and it will probably become one of your favorite meals, one that you will want to share with your family and friends.

Preparation time: 35 min

Serves 2 people


recipes for tequila

  • 1 pasilla chile
  • 30 g roquefort cheese
  • 300 g clean crab pulp
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 300 g corn dough
  • 3 Tsp pork rind
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Oil to fry the quesadillas (as much as needed)



  • 100 g Peeled guava, seeds removed
  • Fresh green pepper and salt to taste




Cut very thin strips of the -by then- seedless pasilla chili with a pair of scissors and fry them for a few moments (be careful not to burn it, since it may become bitter). Place them in a deep bowl and add the roquefort cheese, the crab meat and the chili. Season and set aside.

Place the corn dough in a bowl and add the chopped pork rind and the baking powder and mix until you get a homogeneous mixture, set aside.

Arrange the crab mixture between 2 sets of flattened corn dough, as if making a ravioli (our quesadillas) and fry them in abundant 180 ° C (356 F) oil, until crispy. Set aside.


Blend the guava pulp with the salt and recently ground fresh green pepper.


Smear some of the sauce on the plate and place the quesadillas on top. Enjoy!
