"Knock it off, Napoleon, Just make yourself a dang quesadilla

Quesadilla literally means “little cheesy thing.” Quesadillas originated in northern and central Mexico in the 16th century. They were not Napoleon's favorite food despite the headline. They are a favorite of the new owner of the Vegetable Bar.

Corn tortillas were already popular among the Aztec people. They often stuffed them with squash and pumpkin and baked them in clay ovens as a sweet dessert. In 1521, Spanish settlers brought sheep, lambs, and cows with them to New Spain, thus introducing indigenous people to cheese and other dairy products. The indigenous people continued stuffing their tortillas with pumpkin and squash, but also added cheese to the mix. Thus, the quesadilla was born.

The quesadilla quickly increased in popularity, and to this day has remained a favorite dish in Mexican cuisine.

Today's new Vegetable Bar special is chicken quesadillas. They are not made the traditional way, but with flour tortillas, chicken, sauteed peppers and onions and of course cheese. On the side is guacamole, salsa and cream cheese. They are served with a house salad. You get 1 quesadilla for $3.95, 2 for $4.95 and each quesadilla is a $1 there after. Add a cappuccino for an extra $1 or a Nordica Beer for $2. 

We are now open on Sundays from 9 AM to 3 PM serving an all you can eat breakfast for $9.95. Make sure you check on GringoPost each week for the Sunday Breakfast Special.

Today's breakfast special is a cinnamon roll that rivals Cinnabon and a cappuccino for $2.95.

Stop by the new Vegetable Bar any time where the coffee is always free.
