Chef BoyRUGay would like to remind readers to Ask Argenta, if you have any questions about sexual health, relationships, or living life with pride!
A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to watch the elusive Ms. Perón host a game show at La Casa, the Latino Culture Center at Indiana University Bloomington. The game was a twist on the timeless “Newlywed Game,” in which contestants tried to guess their partners’ answers to questions about relationships (What would your partner give up for love?), sex(Where does your partner prefer to be kissed?) and STI’s(Does your partner know which bodily fluids carry HIV?). It was obvious that Argenta had done her research, and I was reminded of a few facts I had forgotten.
The funniest moment came when participants were asked to identify the safest means of STI prevention. One enthusiastic audience member yelled out what the Chef was already thinking: “Masturbation!”
This week’s challenge is to share healthy eating habits with others. Come up with a few invasive questions of your own, and invite friends for stimulating conversation, over these flavorful, nutritious quesadillas. A note of caution: use a little tact if you plan to invite Argenta over for Taco Night.
The following recipe is courtesy of the South Beach Diet:
4 whole wheat (8-inch) tortillas
2 (6 oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pre-cooked and thinly sliced
1 cup, shredded, reduced-fat cheddar or Monterey jack pepper cheese (I like to use ½ cup of eachJ)
1 avocado, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
Salt and black pepper
Heat oven to 200 degrees.
Heat 1 tortilla in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until warm, about 1 minute.
Sprinkle tortilla with ¼ of the chicken, cheese, avocado, onions, and a pinch of salt and black pepper.
Cover the skillet and cook until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes.
Use a spatula to remove the tortilla from to a plate or cutting board. Fold the tortilla in half and place on a baking sheet in the warm oven.
Repeat three times with remaining ingredients.
Cut each quesadilla into 3 triangles.
These quesadillas are very filling! They served as dinner and next-day lunch for two, when I made them. Salsa, guacamole and low-fat sour cream (or yogurt)are tasty complements to this dish!
