I believe Mexican food competes to be amongst the top most loved international cuisines in India. It might be owing to the spice content in most of the recipes, that makes it quiet desirable to a spice loving Indian palatte! Like India, Mexican cuisine too has various cultural influences. Tex Mex cuisine being one such collaboration between Texas (South Western United States) and Mexico. Mexican cuisine is influenced by past rulers, like the French and Spanish. Spanish invaders brought with them ,new varieties of livestock pigs,cows ,sheep,little known to the mexicans,along with tomatoes and spices. The Spanish also were introduced to new ingredients like peanuts,avocado,coconut and corn. Quesadillas is one such Spanish influenced Mexican dish. Queso is cheese in Spanish and the name itself suggests”little cheesy things” in Spanish. Its mainly a flour tortilla filled with cheese. Savoury items like meat,corn,onions etc can be added to it. Its toasted till the cheese melts and folded in half moon and served. We have tried making a close to authentic version in our Indian kitchen, using mexican spice mixes,and flour tortillas. The result is a super delicious snack, loved by adults and kids alike!
