Points To Remeber 

Pronounced as kay-suh-diya. This dish originated in Mexico, and the name is derived from tortilla and the Spanish word for cheese – queso.

 Add ample amount of cheese so that a bit of the it runs out and sticks to the edges like the top of a great cheese burger.

You can also make them in a dry non-stick frying pan on a medium heat, so that after about a minute and a half on each side you are left with a really crispy outside and an oozy, stringy filling.

To prevent the filling from escaping from your quesadilla during cooking, leave a border at the edge of the tortilla.
