A quickly skillet-fried quesadilla with La Victoria taco sauce I have to have shipped over from the west coast.
Oh, MAN. That reminds me... here's a bachelor chow meal that takes a bit of preparation, but once you've done the hard work, you can make megatasty BC anytime you want.
When I lived with the Taylers (Howard and Sandra Tayler, as seen on the Schlock Mercenary forum), we would go once or twice a year to the store and buy a few pounds of anaheim chili peppers (the long pointy green ones). Put them on a cookie sheet and broil them just long enough to sear them. Remove from oven, and run them under cold water. The skins can then be removed fairly easily, leaving the meat of the pepper behind.
Slice the peppers open & clean out the seeds; now you've got pepper "filets" on your cutting board. Mince them into teeeeeny little bits (like maybe 1/16" square). Think relish--you'll be spreading it with a butterknife. Scoop the relish into an empty jar, dribble a tsp or so of vinegar over it--just enough to keep it wet (this prevents the peppers from turning brown) and place in the fridge. This will keep for months. It won't last
that long, however....
The next time you want quick and easy AND TASTY Bachelor Chow, get out the griddle, the peppers, some cheese and a tortilla. Dab a pat of butter on the griddle and turn the heat up high. Now, quick, grate some cheese. About the time the butter starts to sizzle, slap an open tortilla onto it. Sprinkle the cheese on half of the tortilla. Open the pepper jar and use a butterknife to wipe as much or as little pepper on the other half of the tortilla. I usually use less than 1/2tsp. Add more if you want more heat, but what you're really after here is the heavenly flavor.
As soon as you're done with the peppers, grab a spatula and close the tortilla. Wait 30 seconds or so for the tortilla to brown up, then flip it and brown the other side.
Serve with a glop of sour cream.
Months after I moved out of the Taylers', I lamented to Sandra the fact that I hadn't had a good tortilla in forever because I was too lazy to roast my own chilis, and she gave me half a bottle of the peppers. Bless her!
I went back to my apartment and made a tortilla, then sat down to watch TV with my roommates. A moment later, one of them looked at me and said, "Dude, you're enjoying that tortilla way too much."
I had been "MMmmmmmm"-ing with each bite.
Yes, it's that good.
