Now back to food: I'm here posting up the (so-far) best tortilla recipe that i've found online: Texas Flour Tortillas from homesicktexan. After trying many different recipes, this version makes the softest ones that actually STAY soft without drying or cracking up. They're thick, fluffy, and soft-- perfect for burritos, fajitas, enchiladas, or..... Quesadillas! Yep, which brings me to the second recipe of the day: Chicken Quesadillas. These are like the easiest things to make and they're quite filling too. If you're too lazy to cook chicken, a simple bean+cheese tortilla will also do. So here, no need to spend the extra money (7 ridiculous zlotys in Poland) when you can make double the amount with what, a maximum of 2 zloty worth of supplies?
