With two cheeses! Pork Fajita Quesadillas with two cheeses. I left that part out.
Who doesn’t completely freak their lives over quesadillas? No one. Everyone.
Nat’s in this thing right now where she ONLY EATS QUESADILLAS. ONLY. And she’ll put her hand on her hip and spout, “JUST CHEESE. NOTHING ELSE.” I tried to tuck a scrambled egg in it once (because girl is obsessed with eggs), but it was like a mother/daughter betrayal of epic proportions. “How could you do this to me,” she looked up at me with elephant tears wobbling in her lower lids.
“SORRY! Here are the keys to my car!”
Gosh I love . . . quesadillas.
And these have two cheeses.
And okay – see all those green bell peppers? You don’t have to put four regular-sized peppers in this. Mine are all from our garden and on the slightly smaller side. So for you, one GIANT pepper, or two medium-sized ones. Whatever makes you sob like a baby.
And the two cheeses. I mentioned there are two cheeses in this, right? Havarti and cheddar. And LISTEN, if you want to go heavier with the havarti, fly like an eagle, babe. If you prefer to stick to all cheddar, you’re still a good person.
Two cheeses, though.
First up, you’ll just sauté your veggies. WHICH I KNOW corn is not technically considered to be “a vegetable,” but this isn’t the Dr. Phil show, so let’s all just be cool.
Also! This is where the fajita part comes in. Peppers and onions all blistered in a pan. Ha-bam.
Out go the veggies, in goes the pork.
You’re probably like, “THAT’S PORK? It’s so dark!” Yes it is, birdies, because I seasoned it to the point that it doesn’t even know what it is anymore. Cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt. You can do this.
Now we ques! (By the way, ques is a verb that means to form quesadillas. But don’t try to look it up on Merriam-Webster because I think the internet is down.)
Cheeses on the bottom, porky, lil’ bit of fajita magic, more CHAYSES. Fold it in and crisp up the tortilla on both sides while the cheese melts. Maybe put on a little ’80s Richard Marx because this is your one life.
“Aaaaangeliaaaaa. WHERE YA RUNNING TO NOW?”
I forgot to mention that my big-girl camera was out of batteries, so iPhone photos are what ya get! Well, that and two cheeses. You get two cheeses, too.
UM, these are fantastically dangerous. PERFECT for these back-to-school nights when you have less than an hour to get dinner on the table before your family starts eating your head.
Giant giant flavor, so much melty cheese(S), easily funneled into the mouth at rapid fire speed. You know.
I tried giving the kids a bite with all the toppings on it, and Nat goes, “Mom, I’m a little kid. My mouth’s not THAT big.” Ha! (yes it is, Nat. BURRRRRRN.)
Garnish with dollops of sour cream, fresh salsa, torn cilantro, creamy slices of avocado and fresh lime.
Painfully good. Just you wait, ‘Enry ‘Iggins.
Just you wait.
