Chicken Quesadillas

Chicken Quesadillas

Commonly known as corn tortillas. But flour tortillas are also preferred, especially in the states. As well as in Mexico, you’ll find most quesadillas loaded with Oaxaca cheese, a fibrous Mexican cheese. For our chicken quesadillas
, we use a combination of  Monterey jack and cheddar, but you can substitute any melty cheese you prefer.
