These tacos might be my favorite new thing because they’re really a marriage of two of my favorite Mexican foods — tacos and quesadillas.

There’s a culinary urban legend that the number of pleats in a traditional chef’s hats is directly correlated to the number of ways to cook eggs and, while I’ve never found concrete evidence backing that claim, it’s fair to say there are at least 5 kajillion ways to make eggs.
