Q/ABC Wednesday

Q is for Quesadilla

This was an afternoon snack I shared with a girlfriend at  Agave, a Mexican cantina,  a couple of weeks ago.  Quesadilla was first concocted in Mexico, and the name was derived from the Spanish word queso (cheese).  It is made of flour or corn tortilla filled with savory mixture containing cheese and other ingredients such as cooked meat, refried beans, avocado,  other vegetables may be added.  The filled tortilla is then toasted or fried, usually until the cheese is melted, folded in half to form a half-moon shape.   Crisp on the outside, stuffed on the inside with Mexican cheese and Ranchero sauce.  Served with sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo.  Yummy!
