    Spice Mixture

    Duck Filling

    Avocado Cream


    1. 1
      Personal Note: I live in Mexico - I don't have access to Maple Leaf Farms Smoked Duck, so I had to smoke my own duck breasts. I seasoned them with just a little salt and pepper and slow smoked them until they reached 130 degrees. It is pretty warm here, so it only took a couple of hours. So easy, so good.
    2. 2
      Spice Mixture:.
    3. 3
      Place spice mixture in a small non-stick frying pan. Place over medium heat. Stir CONSTANTLY to toast spices and release their aroma. Don't let them brown. Remove from the heat and reserve.
    4. 4
      Duck Part:.
    5. 5
      Heat oil in medium frying pan. When hot but not smoking, add onion and saute, stirring constantly until onion begins to brown lightly. Add garlic and jalapeno and continue stirring until garlic becomes fragrant but does not brown. Add shredded duck and toss to heat and distribute onion, garlic and spices evenly. Add chilies and oregano; toss well. Add lime juice and let cook for 1 minute.
    6. 6
      Remove from heat and add sour cream; mix well. Place in a bowl to cool.
    7. 7
      Place soft tortillas on worktable in front of you. Spread about 1/2 T. mayonnaise on tortilla, to edges. Spread about 1/6 of the duck mixture on half of the tortilla. Cover with the shredded cheese.
    8. 8
      Fold tortilla in half and brush outsides lightly with olive oil. Reserve to a plate; repeat with remaining tortillas.
    9. 9
      Heat a large non-stick frying pan until hot and brush with some of the remaining oil. Place 2 quesadillas in pan and fry over medium heat until lightly browned. Turn and repeat on the other side. Drain on paper towels. Keep in warm oven until all quesadillas are done.
    10. 10
      Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges, decoratively garnish with Avocado Cream.
    11. 11
      Avocado Cream:.
    12. 12
      Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process until very smooth.
    13. 13
      Place in squeeze bottle and refrigerate until ready to use.
