Quesadillas are my favorite man. This looks much better than what my dad makes, and my dad is a chef.

Thanks, Britt.

What are your favorite quesadillas?
I like using leftover tinga (spicy shredded chicken (cooked chicken breasts, shredded, added to a bunch of onions cooked in butter, with a tomato and chipotle sauce), leftover bistec ranchero (thinly sliced beef cooked in a slightly spicy tomato-based sauce), or leftover carne desebrada (this makes me sad, but the best cut of meat to cook is skirt steak; cooked through in a broth with onion, garlic, and tomato, shredded, and added back into the broth. It's better to let the broth reduce for a bit, so it isn't too soupy)
Also, didn't know your dad was a chef. That's pretty cool.
Also, no offense, but being a poor Mexican, I think I can make better quesadillas than him. And most people in general, minus those poorer than me.
My mum doesn't want to show me how to make flour tortillas. I still haven't learned. Homemade flour tortillas kick so much ass.
I feel so Mexican right now it's pathetic.

I like mine just with all different types of cheese..don't really care for meat. I feel awkward when I go to fancy Mexican restaurants and everyone orders something totally expensive off the menu and I just get a simple cheese quesadilla.

Ahaha, it's all good! You do make better quesadillas than him, I just know it. Your favorite quesadilla does sound delicious some ranchero sauce.

Why won't she teach you? You should learn!! Do you make good Spanish rice?

Ha! That's hilarious! XD
Not in a bad way, though; too bad most places don't have queso Oaxaca (a mozzarella-like cheese from the Mexican state of Oaxaca. It stinks pretty badly, but it melts so damn well. It's really gooey)
My favorite thing to eat at Mexican restaurants is always chiles rellenos. I don't know why they're so expensive; it's just a roasted pepper stuffed with cheese... also, it makes be sad when they use anything besides poblano peppers.

I have to make my ranchero sauce just barely hot. My brothers don't really eat hot and spicy things as much as I do. Sad times.

I think she's just upset that everything that she showed me how to make when I was really little I now make tons better than she does. Minus the homemade flour tortillas; I've never made them :iconotlplz:
I like to make two different types: one that is just straight up flavored rice that comes out slightly dryish, and one where I add frozen veggies at the end, and It's slightly creamy. If that makes sense.

Right, my dad taught me about queso Oaxaca. Says he's never had it before...hmm. I tend to like cheese from goats, is it made from goats? Actually, I like everything from goats. Delicious little bastards. Hail Satan.

Hmm, I've had chiles rellenos before once. I agree, very good eating. And it's always stuffed things like that and bell peppers that are always the most expensive for whatever reason.

Heh. She mad. :trollface:

Damn, I love Spanish rice. The one with the vegetables sounds good.

I think that there are both goat and cow varieties. It's the method of preparation that makes it 'queso Oaxaca', not what animal the milk comes from... I think. Don't quote me on that, I'm not actually sure.
I've only had goat once. As birria de chivo. Didn't really like it. I know I'm going to need to taste it a few more times in a variety of ways to tell whether I like it or not.

It makes me incredibly sad. I'd understand if it was something expensive that they were stuffed with, but, in general, it's not. I don't understand.
...I want roasted stuffed mushroom caps now... OTL

I agree. There is no logical reason why she wouldn't want to shoe me how to make them. I know the process, and the ingredients (boiling water, flour, some lard, a pinch of salt), but I don't know the ratios. I'm going to have to start experimenting soon if she won't show me.

It I'd pretty good. It's easy, too; cook rice normally, but with the chicken and chicken &tomato bouillon added to the water, some tomato sauce, salt, pepper, and frozen veggies added at the end. When the rice is almost completely cooked, before all the water disappears. And just stirred to make the rice creamy-ish instead of dry-ish. Sauteeing the rice with a bit of onion at the beginning doesn't hurt.

That reminds me, do you know these? [link]
Best Mexican candy, EVER. My step-grandma got me a box when she went to Mexico.


I agree though, I was just about to tell you that maybe you should start experimenting. Actually, I think I recall an Alton Brown episode. But he isn't Mexican. So he doesn't get to have a say.

I will tell my dad to make this..I wonder if he can do it without putting his own little "twist" on things like he always does.

Yes! I love those XD
They also sell some that have peanut pieces in them. They're pretty good, considering they're sweet, and not savory.

He did make tortillas, and, for the most part he did good, but they're different than how we make them. He actually had two tortilla shows; the first one, where he made them, and the second one, where he had a ton of leftover tortillas and everyone was on strike because he made a ton of tortillas that he didn't want to do anything with.
If I remember correctly, he made nachos, fritters and/or more torrillas our of ground up tortillas that got stale, and I want to say lasagna, but I think he didn't actually do Mexican lasagna. Crap, what was it?
