Taco Quesadillas

Turn those tacos into quesadillas for something a little different on Taco Tuesday!

I am not a huge fan of corn tortillas. I love my flour tortillas. However, I do try to be a little adventurous and try things I "don't like" because I may find that I actually do like those foods. I really enjoyed these quesadillas made with corn tortillas - and they weren't even crispy crunchy all the way through (like I prefer corn tortillas to be). It's a wonderful and fairly easy variation for taco night.
