      You’re making it too difficult just use 2 corn tortillas or 2 flour tortillas throw Oaxaca cheese in the middle and throw on top of rack on top of a burner not too high though and boom easy 5 minutes

                            Oh man, watching you grate that cheese reminds me of when I accidentally grated a chunk out of my hind doing it the way you are doing. Now I hold whatever it is I'm grating with a dish towel.

                                        No. I will watch more of your videos rather than make a ‘dilla right now, and there’s nothing you can do to stop me.

                                            Seeing this vids makes me think what's the difference between quesadilla and calzone? Or they are the same thing?

                                              Calzones are sealed and generally use more Italian cheeses and fillings. Also are baked instead of fried.

Continue to cook until crispy. This way you get a wonderful quesadilla with a gooey inside and crispy cheese outside.
