There are many types of quesadillas, and melting cheese between two tortillas is a good way to start.


  • 2 large flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cheese such as Queso Quesadilla, Panela or Mozzarella. A mix of different types of cheeses works well.


Warm a comal or a griddle over medium heat. Warm up one side of a tortilla until steaming hot, about 20 seconds. Flip it over so the hot side is up. Quickly sprinkle cheese over the hot side. Top with the remaining tortilla and keep the quesadilla over medium heat for another 1-2 minutes until cheese is almost or completely melted. Flip it to the to the other side to heat for about 1 minute. Remove quesadilla to a plate and slice into triangles (like a pizza). Serve immediately.
