Mt. Signal Cafe - "puffy" quesadillas

i'm also from the imperial valley (the lovely el centro part) and eat these things every time i go home to visit the family, but something just happened....i went to ecuador this past week and found more special flipping quesadillas!!

they had a couple different types...small ones called empanadas de queso, which shouldn't seem surprising that someone should put cheese in an empanada...but then they also had the big poofy kind like in the imperial valley...these were called empanadas de viento...i posted more pictures here: http://bluecornface.blogspot.com

oh...and if you happen to search back to the sept 2009 part of the blog that i reference, the special quesadilla my husband is digging into is from celia's in el centro...mmmm...(celia's has the best refried beans ever, by the way...)
