What is a Quesadilla?
A quesadilla is either a flour or maize (corn) tortilla, filled with various fillings, then folded in half, and grilled on a cast-iron comal. Most of the country’s quesadillas are filled with cheese, but in Mexico City you need to specify if you want cheese. Often, quesadillas are served with salsa, onions, tomatoes, serrano chiles, and guacamole. It is easy to find a place to eat quesadillas in Mexico, whether inside food markets, street stalls or at Mexican restaurants.
