Sometimes fusion food just works. Case in point? These chicken quesadillas with a spicy gochujang sauce. Drawing influences from both Mexican and Korean cuisine, this mash-up is a real winner.

To make these quesadillas, you'll first need to cook up some chicken breast. If you have leftover chicken breast (or a store-bought rotisserie chicken in the fridge), you're already one step ahead of the game.

Gochujang, the Korean fermented chili condiment, is the true star of the show here. You mix it with sour cream, rice vinegar, and sesame oil to create a sauce that perfectly straddles the line between creamy, tangy, and spicy.

Filled with chicken, baby spinach, scallions, shredded cheese, and the gochujang sauce, these flavorful quesadillas give an old classic a new twist.
