Second, only use fresh tortillas. Make your own, or buy some at the store. Tortilla Land makes a good uncooked tortilla. (Psst! Without even noticing until I was editing photos, I totally shot this recipe with parsley and not cilantro! Did you catch the mistake?)

Third, BUTTER. Are we really all that surprised? Butter and I are best friends. It makes everything better. It’s even in our pizza sauce that is one of our top recipes on the site. Seriously though, butter the pan after cooking the tortillas and then cook up the quesadillas. It totally makes such a big difference!

What is a Quesadilla?

Quesadilla is a Mexican dish, consisting of a tortilla that is filled with cheese or sometimes meat and then grilled.

Can Quesadillas be Made With Corn or Flour Tortillas?

Both corn and flour tortilla make tasty quesadillas.

If you are adding more than just cheese, flour tortillas are recommended because they are more durable and hold more ingredients than corn tortillas.

Is Pork Considered White Meat?

Pork is classified as a red meat.

When fresh pork is cooked, it becomes lighter in color, but it is still a red meat.
