How do I say this? I love stuffing cheese in crap. Vegetables, potatoes, breads, whatever. If cheese is oozing out of something, I want it.

Quesadillas are, quite possibly, the most versatile food of all time. They also have the coolest name that I prefer pronouncing like Napolean Dynamite’s grandmother does. I digress – I make & eat a lot of these bad boys.

I typically just toss in a bunch of peppers, onions & sriracha & call it a day. Tonight I wanted to elevate these crunchy buggers. I could not have been more proud of my quesadilla brain child.

I felt like I was having a fancy appetizer at a restaurant with a white tablecloth. Nope! Just me in my sweats watching Pretty Woman. I ate two (8 pieces) and it was the best decision I’d made that day. Besides the sale at Loft that I partook in.
