17. Corned Beef & Cheese Curd Quesadilla

Quesadillas are quick, easy to whip up, and insanely versatile.

Make them with leftover shredded chicken, some of that pork from last night, or just with a generous handful of cheese and some tangy BBQ sauce.

No matter what you pick, so long as the cheese is melty and the tortillas are golden, you’ll be more than happy.

That said, this unique corned beef and cheese curd recipe is a must-make.

Just be sure to keep the heat low in the pan. The curds need longer to melt than grated cheese, so be patient!

It’s worth it in the end, I swear.
