Looking for the All-American Quesadilla? Let’s get patriotic, stop counting calories, upgrade that coke to a Big Gulp and do this!
There is nothing healthy about a quesadilla. Essentially, I slimmed the carbs out of the way and shoved more cheese into an over-glorified pressed sandwich. Then I googled everything America loves and shoved bacon, ranch, and chicken in there too – a winning combination clogging the arteries and topping pizzas in an ongoing trend nationwide.
And you know what, I even put a little avocado on there for you health-conscious types looking to slim your waistline with good-for-you fats. All in all, it was pretty glorious. So, get patriotic, stop counting calories, upgrade that coke to a Big Gulp and let’s do this.
One glorious bite at a time.
What is not to love about meat and cheese pressed between two toasted tortillas? The next time you’re craving a quesadilla, give one of these a try!
