Spinach,Sweetcorn & Mushroom Quesadillas


A quesadilla ,originated from Mexico is a flour or corn tortilla filled with a savory mixture containing cheese and other ingredients, then folded in half to form a half-moon shape,these cheesy veggies stuffed or meat stuffed quesadillas are quite famous in Mexico. The word quesadilla derives from the Spanish word, queso meaning cheese...Quesadillas have been adapted to many different styles. In America, many restaurants serve them as appetizers, after adding their own twist to them.Some interesting filling goes for goat cheese, black beans, spinach, zucchini, tofu, and many other different veggies.Even there are dessert quesadillas. These are made with ingredients like chocolate, butterscotch, caramel with different varieties of fruit.After filling, the quesadillas are folded and then cooked either by boiling or frying. Once the cheese gets melted, the quesadillas are ready to serve..Usually the cooked quesadillas are served as wedges or small slices.
