These are messy and oh so good! I used to make quesadillas for my son for an after school snack,he would bring his friends home and they really enjoyed them,I've been making them this way ever since.
The toppings are optional but really good this way.
We like to use Mozzarella because it melts well,my Grandkids love them because the cheese "pulls ".
