Eat Here, Not There: Regular Flour Quesadilla
|Flickr user jamesg2|
Nevertheless, people buy the meal. And the one fast-food quesadilla that those in my universe seem to buy the most is the Del Taco variety. It's absolutely straightforward: a thin layer of cheddar, and green sauce. I would never buy it, but always steal a slice when people do--it's not bad.
But better? El Rincón Chilango's regular flour quesadilla.
Again: I wouldn't usually order it (I do partake of the chilango quesadillas, though), but El Rincón Chilango's regular flour quesadilla is as close to what I make for my breakfast: a massive flour tortilla, layers of Monterey Jack, not burnt but browned, and with fresh salsa. It's as thick as pinky, and double the size of Del Taco's version. The above is a combo, but order it regular--or better yet, make your own quesadilla at home. But, if you must have something greasy and gooey to start the day, El Rincón Chilango is there for the dining desmadre.
