Wise to the Word: Quesadilla

Jim Hillibish

Quesadilla (kay-saw-DEE-yah): A double flour tortilla with savory Mexican fillings often cut into wedges for appetizers. Spread a thin layer of refried beans, sliced peppers, shredded chicken or beef and diced Monterey Jack cheese on one tortilla. Place another on top. Fry in oil on both sides until golden.
