Pronounced: keh-sah-DEE-yah

A flour or corn tortilla filled with a savory mixtue, then folded in half. Fillings can be shredded cheese, cooked meat or refried beans. Once filled and folded, the tortilla is either fried or toasted using a broiler or griddle then served with salsa. Quesadillas are cut into wedges or strips and are often served as an appetizer. In Mexico, quesadillas are generally eaten whole. Another variation found outside of Mexico is a "whole" quesadilla - made of two tortillas sandwiched with the filling between rather than one folded in half.
