So, it’s not KWAY-suh-dill-uh?
Damn. Because that’s how I’ve been saying it for years.
I think you all know that I love a good Impossible Pie. So I have declared yet another Resolution for 2014: make all of the Impossible Pies in the Bisquick “No Time To Cook” Recipe Book (1982). I found the booklet on one of my favorite sites, Click Americana.
This new project is in addition to finishing all of the Dinner is Served dinner cards. Oh, and my other goal of doing 1 pull up by the end of 2014. I think I can do it.
But what about the Quesadilla pie?
The story here is cheese.
Lots and lots of cheese. This dish was basically just cheese.
How much cheese?
The main ingredient was two (yes, I said two) of these:
I added some chili powder and sliced, fresh Jalepeno peppers on top for some color and some extra flavor. I mean, the only ingredients were 1 measly can of chili peppers, eggs, cheese, Bisquick, and milk. They weren’t terribly adventurous with the spices here in 1982, but not even some salt and pepper? C’mon, man!
I prepared it up to that point, put it in the fridge, and then baked it at Todd and Leah’s. I was worried, transportation-wise, that the pie would be all slushy, but after it sat in the fridge, this was already pretty set and solid. It just needed to be baked. But since it was refrigerated, the baking time was closer to 45-50 minutes to be cooked thoroughly.
Here is the finished product:
But God bless Bisquick, a crust did form on the bottom of this–this brick of cheese. And I’m not saying that like it’s a bad thing. Cheese is good. Cheese is one of the six things I can’t live without, according to my OKCupid profile (the other 5 are: sunscreen, earplugs, Pinot Grigio, the NFL, and Lifetime Movie Network—although I need to revise that list; I could no longer live without my Roomba).
Anyway, I housed the leftovers. I love a good Impossible Pie. Maybe that is the mid-westerner in me coming out. GIVE ME CASSEROLES MADE WITH CONVENIENCE FOODS!
So, three Impossible Pies down. 9 to go. Who wants to invite me over so I can bring one of the dessert pies?*check out my Star Market Guacamole Recipe HERE.
