I just returned from Mexico City, and noticed something about our beloved quesadillas. At the restaurant there when we ordered them, they were more of a fried pie than a tortilla "sandwich". A cheese quesadilla was either a thick tortilla or dough stuffed with white cheese, folded over, and deep fried. Served on a plate by itself. They were pretty small, somewhat like the meat pie you might see at a wedding reception or banquet.
Is that the authentic version of a quesadilla?
