or, How Hunger and Blogging Don't MixI was absolutely starving when I got home from work today. The quickest way to eat something tasty was to make a quesadilla out of the leftovers from taco night.
Oh, taco night...let's back up a minute:
Sunday night we had friends over. MIL made tacos, rice and beans. Sounds boring, right? Not so! She seasoned & cooked ground beef, adding a shredded potato to keep it thick (who knew?). Then she fried corn tortillas in oil about halfway, drained them, stuffed with a little meat, then fried the rest of the way. I thought frying the 2nd time with the meat would result in greasy-nasty beef, but it didn't. Trays of tacos were served with green onion, tomato, cilantro & onion, and shredded cheese (and homemade chili, of course). Spanish rice and pinto beans for sides. It made for a pleasant Sunday evening with friends, slightly dampened by the fact that we all got tired early 'cause we ate too much.
Now, back to the present:
Of course, there were leftovers, 'cause MIL cooks for an army, even if there's no army present. So tonight's quesadilla went as follows:
- Spread beans, ground beef, and cheese on one half of a flour tortilla.
- Toast in a skillet until crunchy on the outside and melty-gooey on the inside. (Geez, I sound like a Taco Bell commercial, sorry.)
- Remove from skillet, open quesadilla, add tomatoes, green onions, and chili sauce, close quesadilla.
- Remember to take a picture only after the plate is empty.
