Addie loves going to the Mexican restaurant and I think (1) it’s expensive and (2) the service isn’t always the best but she loves quesadillas and refried beans. The last time I was there, I told her that I can make refried beans. She didn’t believe me but I made them and she said mine were better than those at the restaurant.
The other day Vince and I were in Aldi and they had these quesadilla makers. There was a debate in my head! I do not need, nor do I have room for any more kitchen gadgets. Every time Addie and I go to the Mexican restaurant, it’s at least $25 for the two of us to eat – usually more.
So, I got one!
We bought these flour tortillas from a local restaurant where they make them. They’re thick and kinda “bready” and they’re so good!
I was thinking I’d grill some chicken, shred it and use that for the meat but then I saw this at Aldi – finely sliced ribeye steak.
I browned it in a little butter, with onions and seasoning. I told Vince . . that’s the kind of meat my teeth like! It really almost melts in your mouth!
A little Mexican cheese blend was sprinkled on top of the meat, then the top tortilla was added.
For less than $14, I’d say that’s a good investment for us.
