Bachelor Chef -- Quesadilla

I make taco meat in batches, using premade store-bought taco sauce. I just tried this particular brand ("Frontera") and it was really good. (The Bachelor Chef never makes anything if it can be bought premade!) Anyway, I used 1½ pounds of hamburger and two packages of the sauce.

Once it's done I cool it my refrigerator for about ten minutes, and then spoon it into a couple of ice cube trays.

Then freeze it. Once frozen, the cubes get stored in a plastic bag in my freezer. When time comes to make a quesadilla, I put three or four cubes in the microwave for a minute to thaw them and heat them up. I Spread the taco meat on a flour tortilla and cover with grated cheese.

That gets heated on a griddle and covered with another tortilla. Once it's scorched on both sides, I cover it with quacamole.

I eat it with knife and fork to prevent making a mess (like dumping a piece of it on my computer keyboard by accident).

Jack cheese is preferred but I haven't been able to find a brand at Safeway that I like. So I'm using Tillamook Colby-Jack. I buy it in 1 pound chunks. I grate one pound at a time into a box which I keep in my frig, to be used as and when I need it.

Unlike most of the travesties I document here, this was actually pretty good.

1 I've tried their pre-fab enchilada sauce pouches.  The red was okay. The green was more travesty-ish.

Wait...you've been trolling us? And here I thought it was my terrible cooking skills. Well played Mr. Den Beste. Well played.
