Sear Nation
My specialty is cooking at high temperatures. A grill is my favorite kitchen essential, followed by many other great tools. I am excited to bring a taste of Sear Nation to your very own table.
These Mexican quesadillas are great paired with your favorite toppings. My favorites are salsa and sour cream, but you could use a lot of other toppings as well including guacamole, cayenne sauce, chipotle aioli, limes for juicing etc.
