Delicioso! I loved this. I reduced it to a single serving and can't believe how flavorful this quesadilla was. I was a little worried that there wasn't enough cheese but it was fine. I also used the full-fat versions of cheese and tortillas because it was what I had on hand. I only have a small GF and everything fit perfectly. Thanks for the Keeper English Rose!
