Got the recipe straight from the bartender! And it is AWESOME! Recipe for simple syrup: Basically 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of water, bring to a boil, simmer on low for about 6-8 minutes stirring until all sugar is melted, let cool, store in a jar or air tight container in the refrigerator.
Do not let the list of ingredients keep you from making this salad. Most of the ingredients are for the marinade and salsa which should be made the day before and refrigerated. The remaining ingredients are the salad and side items. It is super quick to throw together the next day and tastes awesome. The tequila-lime chicken is outstanding on its own and you may want to make extra Pico de Gallo to keep in the fridge. I have adapted this recipe from a former Applebee's employee. The recipe is scaled down for one serving, so adjust for more servings. Cooktime is marinade time.
This is a copycat version of Applebee's famous quesadillas. Using the Pico de Gallo recipe #83371 (thank you EdsGirl), you won't be able to tell the difference between these and the ones from the restaurant. Please note, the recipe is for one serving, adjust accordingly to suit your needs.
