Refried Bean Quesadilla
- Large soft tortilla shells
- Diced tomato
- Diced green pepper
- Taco seasoning
- 1 can refried beans
Step 1: Get your tortillas ready on a cookie sheet. I'm making two so I'll have enough for tomorrow's lunch**. Spread a generous layer of refried beans on one side of each tortilla.
|This is fine. You have frozen pizzas if this doesn't turn out.|
Step 2: Furrow brow and feel doubt. Make sure the can doesn't say "Purina" on it.
Step 3: Feel sad that you've only found cheddar cheese and you don't have mozzarella***. Pile on an embarrassing amount.
|Enough to cause a traffic jam in uranus.|
Step 4: Throw out the green pepper, because you're only one person in an apartment, and it's gone bad anyway.
Step 5: Sprinkle a small amount of taco seasoning over the cheese.
Step 6: Marvel at the fact that your tomato hasn't gone bad. Cut it up and throw it on there. It'll look something like this:
Step 7: Fold over the naked side of the tortilla to create half moons. Pop into the oven at 350 degrees for approximately 8-10 minutes.
Step 8: Look at the packet of taco seasoning, and notice that you - the wimp with the palate of an 80 year old Englishman - have purchased the packet marked "Hot & Spicy."
|Now you have no idea what the traffic is going to be like in uranus tonight.|
Step 9a: Ignore the fact that the spend analysis you've completed showed you had spent 10 times on booze what you do on books***, and drink it. To make:
- 1 part amaretto
- 2-3 parts lemonade
Step 11: Enjoy it, because it turned out pretty good. The only small change I would make is to add a little more taco seasoning than I did.
You may have noticed that I've not put any measurements in the above. This is for three reasons:
Reason 1: We're all adults. You know how much cheese and spice you can handle.
Reason 2: This may come as a surprise: I'm not a food blogger.
