What’s good, Hokies? This little blog topic is all about good eats around Blacksburg and a new recipe you can try at home. I hope you all are hungry because this week we are headed to Cabo Fish Taco!

Cabo is located on the corner of Lee Street and Main in downtown Blacksburg. They have everything from their famous fish tacos to delicious quesadillas and fajitas. Many nights with the squad have been spent stuffing ourselves at Cabo and, honestly, no regrets. We start with chips and salsa and the night only gets better from there!

If you’re reading this and thinking “Yo, fish is gross”, then no worries! Cabo has chicken and beef options as well! My personal favorite choice would be the classic chicken quesadilla. It’s one of the best ones that I have ever had so I literally get it every time! Another favorite is their cheddar mashers. It’s just cheese and mashed potatoes, but no joke, they are so good! For you veggie lovers out there you can always have a salad or wrap of your choice! They also have yummy appetizers, such as guacamole, and spinach and artichoke dip. All go amazing with their tortilla chips!

As you can see there are a ton of delicious options at our local Cabo Fish Taco! If you are looking for some good food and a Hokie-loving hangout, then go try Cabo! It won’t disappoint, I promise you.

Chicken Quesadilla Recipe

If going out isn’t your thing or you are a broke college student like me, try this easy and delicious quesadilla recipe!

An action shot from “The Hunger Games,” a recent BCM cooking competition.

You’re going to need these ingredients: boneless skinless chicken breasts, (2) bell peppers, a red onion, shredded cheddar cheese, shredded colby jack cheese, (6) flour tortillas, olive oil, and sour cream for dipping.

Now here are your steps!

To get started you are going to cut the chicken breasts into ½ inch cubes (this makes it easier for cooking). Heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil in a skillet on medium to medium high. Place your chicken cubes in the pan and cook until done. This should take about 6 minutes. Remove chicken and place in a bowl.

Next you are going to dice your peppers and onions into small cubes (make sure to remove the core of the pepper to get rid of the seeds) Place another 2 teaspoons of olive oil in the skillet, along with the diced peppers and onions. Cook for about 6 minutes and make sure to stir occasionally. Place them in the bowl with the chicken and mix together.

As you can see, we are serious about fine cuisine.

After this, you are going to brush the tops of your tortillas with butter (so they don’t stick to the pan). Wipe your skillet clean of the oil, and then place one tortilla on the skillet. Make sure the butter side is facing down.

Place ½ cup of cheese on the tortilla, followed by your chicken mixture. Then cover with another tortilla. Cook for about 2 minutes and then carefully flip the tortilla to the others side. Cook for another 2 minutes and then remove from pan. For more quesadillas repeat!

All done! You can now enjoy your quesadilla! I like mine with sour cream, but if that’s not for you then try salsa or guacamole!
