Old El Paso Kits

My blood pressure has just been raised to the N'th degree, making the quesadilla kit.

The box says 15 minutes, but I'm still making the bastages an hour and a half later (if you include prep time).

To make 8 of them in the pan takes at least 5 minutes each, as you have to clean the frying pan out, after each one made.

This has to be the most stressful and anger inducing tea I've ever made.

WHY DOES IT SAY 15 MINUTES?

'Cos they wouldn't sell as many if they said '[email protected] to make, allow at least 90 minutes'

No! a spoon of chicken in each, but you fry them and turn them over and bits of tomato, chicken and cheese fall out, despite using every friggin tool in the kitchen. It's a decent pan too, but i still had to wash it between each one. I ended up sulking like a 5 year old and the Mrs finished off cooking the last few. I'm going to write to Old El Paso, warning them that if I die within the next few weeks, they can hold themselves partly responsible.
