making quesadilla

P4026584

the quesadilla were by far my favourite dish that night..

P4026615

These quesadilla were made to perfection -gorgeous corn tortilla shells, filled with a savory mixture containing cheese, meats or corn/vegetables then folded in half to form a half-moon shape – these were to die for. This dish originated in Mexico, and the name is derived from tortilla and the Spanish word for cheese queso.
