A flour tortilla filled with a savory mixture, then folded in half to form a turnover shape. The filling can include shredded cheese, cooked meat, refried beans, or a combination of items. After the tortilla is filled and folded, it is toasted under a broiler or fried. Quesadillas are usually cut into strips before being served, often as an appetizer.
cooked flour tortillas
grated jack cheese, or other soft flavorful cheese (we used our Dutch Peasant Gouda, very delicious!)
Place the cheese on one half, fold over, and fry until cheese melts. Great served with the salsa.
