Cheese & Black Beans Quesadillas

Quesadillas, is a sandwich like flour tortillas or corn tortillas filled with any savoury mixture having cheese, vegetables etc, later they are cooked in a hot griddle and folded in half to form a half moon shaped sandwich.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. A Scandinavian treat uses a lefse (thin potato pancake resembling a tortilla) containing brie cheese and lingonberry jam. Even dessert quesadillas are made, using ingredients such as chocolate, butterscotch, caramel, and different fruits.We are great fans of quesadillas. Whenever we go to Mexican restaurant, we never forget to order quesadillas. We love it that much.
