A note about serious food allergies

“Oh give me a home, where the Buffalo roam, where the deer and the antelope play, where seldom is heard a discouraging word, and the cowboys eat quesadillas all day.” It doesn't really matter whether the old cowboys ate quesadillas or not… we know they ate steak. And these tortilla-and-cheese wonders are filled with BBQ-steak and drizzled with salty ranch. It's Americana in a Mexican dish, so as American as it comes.
