Restaurant Recipes: Chili’s Quesadilla Explosion

Chili’s, the iconic Tex-Mex restaurant chain, needs no introduction. I don’t know of many people who haven’t dined at Chili’s, and perhaps you’ve visited their newest branch at Yas Mall since my last post here?

I am such a huge fan of the Chili’s Chocolate Molten Cake, you can bribe me with a plate of this any time! I haven’t got the recipe for this (yet!) but why not give their equally delicious Quesadilla Explosion recipe a go?
