5 Irresistible Quesadilla Recipes to Satisfy Your Cravings
Quesadillas have a rich history in Mexican cuisine, dating back to the Aztecs, who are believed to have first made them.

The term “quesadilla” comes from the Spanish word “queso,” meaning cheese, which is a staple ingredient in this dish.

Traditionally, quesadillas were made with masa dough and filled with a variety of ingredients, including cheese, squash blossoms, and huitlacoche (a type of corn fungus). These early quesadillas were cooked on a hot stone or griddle.

Over time, quesadillas have evolved to include a wide range of fillings, from meats like chicken and beef to vegetables and even seafood. Flour tortillas are commonly used today, but corn tortillas are still preferred in some regions of Mexico.
