It seems lately the quesadilla has become my favorite method of consuming leftovers.
I'll take whatever leftovers we have in the fridge, and dump it into a cheese-filled tortilla, and then nuke it for 1 minute. It helps to dab some Cholula sauce in there too.
In this case, we had a box of onion rings from Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que. It's a chain of restaurants in California, Arizona, and Nevada. They have these thinly sliced onion rings, made from red onions, as appetizers. It's comparable to the "Bloomin' Onion" that you get at Outback Steakhouse and other steak joints.
The photo below depicts what I created...
Except after I took the photo, I added another layer of cheese. Then I nuked it for 1 minute.
How did it taste?
Truthfully, I really didn't know how this was going to taste. I think I put too much cheese on it, because I taste more of the cheese than anything else. And the Cholula sauce was "ok". It would have been better to use BBQ sauce.
This would have actually been better with some thin sliced steak.
So what do you junkfoodies think about the quesadilla as a vehicle for consuming leftovers?
