What Would You Make?


Here's the scenario: you are at home and hungry for food. You have to cook up something scrumptious for you and your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse/child/friend, but the ingredients you have on hand are limited.

You have a couple of tortillas, fresh cilantro, and pepper jack cheese. Using these products, along with whatever you currently have on hand in your cupboard and refrigerator, what would you make?

To see what I would whip up,

  1. I would start by slicing the tortillas into triangles.
  2. Next I would heat frying oil in a pan until hot. I would fry the tortilla wedges in batches until crisp and then salt lightly.
  3. I would cover a baking sheet with foil and top with the crisp tortillas, grated cheese, and canned black beans and canned corn.
  4. I would bake in the oven until the cheese is melted, about ten minutes.
  5. I would then top the nachos with cilantro and sour cream.
  6. Finally, I would serve with an ice cold brewsky. Yum-O!

guacamole with the cilantro, lime, and tomato.i'd chop some chicken and throw some black beans and salsa in a pan. cook the chicken, black beans, salsa, and pepper jack. throw it all in a tortilla, then make a huge margarita to drink with it.

Quesadilla with tons of cilantro. It would not be a taste of (American) Mexican food without it.

I would make a quesadilla with the cheese and tortillas and skip the cilantro. Yucky! Serve with chips and a Diet Pepsi and I am a happy young lady.

Quesadilla is what comes to mind. And, I actually do have some carnitas and tomatoes & onions in my fridge right now. So I can make carnitas tacos with homemade salsa. Mmm, mmmm, good!

Add thanksgiving leftovers and that's pretty much what I have in my fridge right now. I was going to put together some type of quesadilla tonight. I was gonna spread cranberry sauce on the tortillas then sprinkle with stuffing, turkey, a little bit of gravy and grated pepper jack cheese for a kick. Obviously, I'm running out of things to do with my thansgiving leftovers, but sometimes the strangest things are the best.

"I would make a cheese quesadilla and throw the cilantro away. I hate cilantro it tastes like soap, i thought it was just me but my husband agrees and so do some of my friends. I guess everyone likes different things." HA! Thats the first thing I thought too Liss! I think its actually a genetic thing...this aversion to cilantro.
