2. The Original
Before we get ahead of ourselves with interesting tips and changes, we should first go back to the beginning and look at the first version.
The original Mexican quesadilla recipe involves using Oaxaca cheese, which is a stringy cheese that is made by pasta filata method (the stretched-curd method) helping to make the cheese melt. These are normally cooked dry with no oil, and will then be served with red or green salsa, chopped onions, and a little guacamole.
If you want to go authentic then, you need to look into getting some Oaxaca cheese. At the same time, you might want to try using a ‘comal’ to prepare the quesadillas. If you don’t have the option of investing in new cooking equipment just to try out authentic quesadillas (though it’s totally worth it), then instead you might want to try just frying them in oil to create ‘quesadillas fritas’. Either way, the result is that you will be preparing the mixture like a pastry.
