Cilantro, baby! I love it but if you don't, you can leave it off. In fact you can use or not use any of the ingredients. Except the cheese and tortilla of course.

I'm using two pans but you can also use a grill or just make one at a time. Put the heat on medium-high and stay close because they cook really fast.

As the cheese melts, flip over to cook the other side. You want to cook them until the cheese is melted and each side is somewhat golden.

I use kitchen shears to cut the tortillas into small triangle shapes. That makes them easier to eat. But you can also use a knife or leave them whole. Your call.

I serve with hot sauce (Valentino is my  personal favorite) and a dollop of sour cream. I also like to squeeze lime over the quesadilla and garnish with some of the cilantro.  Enjoy!
