“Huevos Rancheros” and “Quesadillas” from “Easy Meals”

Maureen (as the boys gobble up the quesadillas): Try the eggs, which are called huevos rancheros in Spanish.

Andrew (12): Hmm. (tries it) Yum!

Nicholas (8) (pushes the eggs around his plate): I’m not sure.

Andrew: Look! I’ve finished mine!

Maureen: Nicholas, you have to try them before you know if you’ll like them. (Nicholas tries the eggs). Do you like them?

Nicholas: Yes.

Andrew (who doesn’t like eggs): You can’t taste the eggs.

Maureen: They’re good. They sort of taste like pizza, though the dish is supposed to be Mexican. It doesn’t matter. It’s still delicious.

Nicholas: What it’s missing is some crispiness. It needs something to crunch on.

Maureen: Hmm. I’m not sure about that. What do you think of the quesadillas?

Andrew: Yum!

Nicholas: They’re good. I like these.

Maureen: This are different from what she recommends you make in the book.

Tim: How?

Maureen: Her recommended fillings are gruyere and mango, salami and mozzzarella or tomato and goat’s cheese. None of those fillings are anywhere close to the fillings you usually see in quesadillas.

Nicholas: Yuck. Those fillings sound gross.

Maureen: I agree. That’s why I stuck with the tried-and-true cheddar cheese, or cheddar and salsa. Would you like me to make this again?

Andrew: Totally! Totally! Totally! Totally! Totally! That’s five totallys. Are you getting the message?

Maureen: I am indeed.

    I’m quite sure that the quesadillas from Plenty are fantastic. I’m equally sure they would take far longer than the 5 minutes it takes me to cook my traditional quesadillas. But I will give it a go on a night when I don’t have to get dinner prepared and eaten in under 15 minutes.

    Yeah, we save them for a relaxed weekend dinner. There are few Plenty recipes I’d attempt during the week, actually.
