what is a quesadilla?

A quesadilla is a Mexican dish made with a tortilla that is filled primarily with cheese, and sometimes meats, spices, and other fillings, and then cooked on a griddle or stove. Traditionally, a corn tortilla is used, but it can also be made with a flour tortilla.

What does it mean in Mexican?

You might be wondering where this tasty treat found its well-known name? Well, queso means cheese in Spanish, and Dilla means a slang term for a dude. So quesadilla translates into “cheese-dude.”

This little cheese thing was originated in the northern and central Mexico back in the 16th century.
