Ruined Dinner Quesadilla

I ruined dinner the other night.  Just killed it.  I made an enchilada sauce so spicy that I couldn’t serve it to the kids.  They couldn’t, in fact, even smell it.  I think they ended up eating rolled turkey and a whole bunch of other stuff I pulled from the bottom of the fridge.  Truly, not my best showing.

I let the abandoned sauce hang for a day before deciding to fry it out in my new “Ruined  Dinner Quesadilla.”  It was delicious.


Brown a pound of organic ground beef.  Add chopped green pepper, onion, garlic, and a good dose of cumin, cayenne, salt, pepper, and chili pepper, and some paprika (I think this came to about two tablespoons of spice).   Add a can of tomatoes and a cup of water.  Cook down for an hour or two. Shove it into the fridge for a full day to mellow.

(You see the thing is I didn’t really follow a recipe. Hence, the extra heat on the first night.  I’d go with it though, you never know what will happen!)

Stuff all of the goodness a tortilla with a load of Cabot cheddar cheese and fry it up.  Add sour cream, cilantro, and hot salsa.

I wonder what I’ll ruin next!

    I’m laughing because I’ve done this so many times, especially with the enchilada sauce. It’s usually a comedy of errors, with me trying to save the sauce by adding extra tomatoes, but somehow the proportions never come out right. I never thought to save it for the next day and see what happened.

    Honestly, I think that sounds kind of awesome. I love spicy food–might have to give this one a try. Maybe it won’t be ruined for much longer!
