Chicken Quesadilla

Next to Indian if I have to pick one cuisine, without second thought I will pick Mexican. Starting from the chips and salsa I love each and every dish from the Mexican cuisine. Be it Tortilla soup or Tacos or Fajitas or Tamales or Chimichanga or the one recipe I am going to write below. You name it I love it :).  That is how much I love Mexican food.
