A quesadilla is a flour tortilla or a corn tortilla filled with a savoury mixture containing cheese and other ingredients, and vegetables, then folded in half to form a half-moon shape. This dish originated in Mexico, and the name is derived from tortilla and the Spanish word for cheese queso.
Quesadillas have been adapted to many different styles. In the United States, many restaurants serve them as appetizers, after adding their own twist. Some variations are: goat cheese, black beans, spinach, zucchini, or tofu. Even dessert quesadillas are made, using ingredients such as chocolate, butterscotch, caramel, and different fruits.
