History For Cinnamon Quesadillas
A quesadilla is maize or wheat tortilla that has been folded in half and loaded with cheese and potatoes.
Quesadillas were created with the arrival of Spanish settlers in Mexico in the 16th century.
In Medieval Spain, turnovers (stuffed pastries) were very popular.
Quesadillas were created by combining old-world items like cheese, chicken, or turkey with new-world dishes like tortillas (Tlaxcala in Nahuatl).

Instruction For Cinnamon Quesadillas
- Over medium-low heat, heat a large skillet. Cook, turning occasionally until apples are somewhat softened and caramelized, 8 to 10 minutes, in a heated skillet with apple, corn syrup, honey, maple syrup, ground cinnamon, and brown sugar. Fill a bowl halfway with the apple mixture.
- Place 1 tortilla in the same skillet over medium-low heat and top with apple mixture. The remaining tortilla will be placed on top. Cook for 1 to 3 minutes, or until the bottom tortilla is golden brown. Flip the quesadilla carefully and cook for another 1 to 3 minutes, or until the other tortilla is golden brown.
