Mt. Signal Cafe - "puffy" quesadillas

We lived in Imperial Vally most of our lives. We retired to Colorado and missed the local food including quesadillas. We decided to try to make some.

We went to Wal-Mart. They had the following ingredients.

La Abuela Brand Ready-to-Cook Tortillas
These are raw, uncooked tortillas....not the ones already cooked and we use for burritos or tacos.

La Chona Quesadilla
Mexican Shredded Cheese

Houston, TX

We put the cheese on a tortilla, folded the tortilla in half, sealed the edges with a fork, cooked on high heat in olive oil. They were very, very similar to those in Imperial Valley in such restaurants as Camachos Place, Celias, La Fonda, etc.
The package said you can seal the edges with milk or eggwash.

We are happy campers.
