Roast turkey and Brussels sprouts go together like Bennie and the Jets, and it's a shame that they rarely make on-stage appearances outside of Thanksgiving. This recipe, which incorporates charred brussels sprouts, roast turkey, and gooey melted cheese in a crisp, puffy quesadilla is a first step towards changing that.

Turkey and Brussels sprouts are a natural pair that should be brought out more than once a year. In this recipe, we combine them with gooey melted cheese and pickled jalapeños in a light and crispy quesadilla.
I'd like to welcome Las Quecas to Chicago, which is the first outlet of the quesadilleria outside of Cancun. I stopped into try the specialty of the house, and also got the chance to talk to chef Ambrocia about what led to his decision to open here.
Today's post was supposed to be an easy one. Try Taco Bell's new Triple Steak Stack, write a few words for and against, spend an inordinate amount of time taking photos, and call it a wrap. But somewhere along the way, it got more complicated than that. Complications involving a Cantina Double Steak Quesadilla and a duel to the death (of a sandwich).
Frankly, corn smut (otherwise known as huitlacoche) can look a little scary, because it's jet black and mushy, and an infected corn kernel doesn't always scream "eat me!" But in Mexico it's a delicacy, and what's good for Mexico is good for me.
I visited La Chilangueada to try one thing, but that plan changed fast. Now I'm kind of convinced that La Chilangueada is one of the best all-around taquerias in Chicago, especially on the North Side.
Bizarra Capital in Whittier brings fun new Mexican cuisine to the Los Angeles suburb of Whittier.
What can be better than combining fresh crab meat, avocado, and cheese? This simple dinner is also served with a tomato and avocado concoction on the side to round it out.
I'm not always a huge fan of quesadillas, especially the ones that shun fresh masa and just use a folded flour tortilla. But I realize that they do have their place. Take this recipe from the blog Closet Cooking. At first glance it looks like just a really basic version, but it doesn't taste like one at all. It's the small details here that make for a more flavorful meal.
