How to Make a Quesadilla on the Stove
The secret to restaurant-style quesadillas is a cast-iron pan on medium heat, topped with avocado oil. This high-heat cooking oil will get that crispy crunch on your quesadillas with a mild flavor that lets the other ingredients shine. Wait until the top tortilla begins to heat up before flipping to ensure your ingredients stay in the quesadilla.
