Introduction: Dorm Room Quesadilla

When I was in college, I always found myself hungry and frustrated while waiting to use the kitchen commons. My friend and I would experiment with various ways to cook food in our dorm room on the down-low. This is one of the easiest (and safest) ideas we came up with.

Step 1: Needed:

-Steam Iron

-aluminum foil

-dish towel



(OPTIONAL: pre-cooked foods like grilled chicken, ham, etc.)

Step 2: Prep It.

Plug in the iron, and set it to its highest setting, and let it heat up. Place the towel on your table or counter to protect its surface. Add a square of aluminum foil on top of the towel, a tortilla on top of the foil, and cheese (with any other optional filling) on half of the tortilla.

Step 3: Fold It.

Fold the tortilla over neatly, along with the foil. be sure to close up the ends so no cheese is lost in the process... PRECIOUS CHEEEeeeeeeEEeeEeeeSSssseee!

Step 4: Press It.

Place your hot iron against this captive cheesy creation for one minute on each side. Be sure to use a timer. Wait for the beep, then unwrap and behold!

Cooking times will very depending on the Iron. Keep on experimenting until you get it right!

Step 5: Dress It.

Eating directly off of the foil is perfectly acceptable.... but if you have a spare moment, why not eat with a little finesse?

Plate it up and add some sliced avocado, and a dollop of sour cream with a dash of salt/pepper to make it a meal!
