Quesedillas are Mexican bread made out of corn flour tortillas and filled with 'N' number of choices. Which is quite filling, tasty and easy to make. Mexican quesadillas are traditionally cooked on a skillet, which is also used to prepare tortillas. As a variation, the quesadillas can be fried in oil to make quesadillas fritas.
The main difference is while the traditional ones are prepared just filling the partially cooked tortillas, then continue cooking until the cheese melts, the fried ones are prepared like a pastry, preparing the uncooked masa in small circles, then topping with the filling and finally folding the quesadilla to form the pastry. It is then immersed into hot oil until the exterior looks golden and crisp..
