Quesadilla, a Mexican dish, is tortillas filled with cheese, folded in half and then heated or grilled lightly so that the cheese melts. Different kind of fillings is added to make it tastier. I use regular whole wheat roti/chapati to make these quesadillas. I find this a healthier alternative than store bought tortilla. you can use any according to your choice
This bean quesadilla has red kidney beans, corn, onion, tomato, and capsicum filling, all kids favorite.
