  1. I am so happy. I like without onion&garlic. thank you. Hare krishna.

  2. Glad you liked it – thank you.

  3. I have tried about 3 times to make quesadilla in the last few days, and no matter what I try to change about my recipe, they keep coming out *extremely* floppy and not-at-all crispy!

    I am using flour tortilla, which I think is what I’m supposed to use. (I mean, I’m not supposed to use like a hard taco shell, am I??)

    I grease the pan, put in the tortilla, put in the cheese, cook it at a low heat for about 4 minutes, fold it, and take it out. The cheese is fine, the spices are fine, the dipping sauces are fine. … It’s just that darned tortilla that’s as floppy and non-crispy!

    What do you suggest I do to make this recipe like it’s made in restaurants?
    I just made another batch by putting lots of oil in the pan, microwaving the tortilla for 1 minute between two paper towels (which helped!), and turning it on high. — Now it just tastes hard and overcooked like burnt popcorn.

    I guess I’ll have to experiment with a happy medium. Maybe microwaving the tortilla for like 45 sec on a medium power, then cooking it with the cheese on a medium-low setting. We shall see!
