QUATRO QUESOS DOS FRITOS INSPIRED BY PSYCH

Picture for Quatro Quesos Dos Fritos inspired by Psych

4,659,054 views  You thought Dulé Hill couldn't steal the show once again after his residency on the West Wing - well, back by popular demand, he's reprising his role as Burton Guster in the tv-movie revival of Psych this weekend. Revel in the duo's stoner-like propensity for hilariously unhealthy snacks with this week's recreation of a fan favorite: potatoes, stuffed with four cheeses, deep-fried, breaded, and re-fried, nestled on a bed of ancho sour cream and crispy bacon.
