Quesadillas, more than cheese-filled tortillas

Quesadillas is a Mexican dish that dates back to the 16th century and it has changed and evolved over many years as people have experimented with different variations.

But you need to know that isn’t just the cheese-filled versión you may know.

A proper Mexican quesadilla is a heated tortilla with melted cheese inside, of course. But not any cheese but a good quality cheese. Oaxaca cheese, asadero cheese, manchego cheese, and Chihuahua cheese are all good options.

 And in addition to cheese, you can put practically any other fillings in a quesadilla like meat and vegetables, and then folded over to be eaten by hand.

A typical quesadilla is made with a corn tortilla served with green or red salsa or sour cream as toppings and some guacamole, chopped onion, tomato, serrano chiles, or cilantro on the side.

Mexican quesadillas are traditionally cooked on a comal – traditional griddle-, which is also used to prepare tortillas. The tortillas are stacked with the filling in the middle and then cut into half-moons or triangles.
