Recipe by Mexi-Rosie

I live in Mexico and "quesadillas" always use corn masa or corn tortillas. The ones made with flour tortillas are called "sincronizadas" (just a cultural tidbit). Anyway, these are from scratch and very versatile since you can use any leftover filling.

  3. Fill with your favorite filling or leftovers (not runny) as for turnovers.
