National Quesadilla Day

On September 25th, National Quesadilla Day will encourage us to take a seat at the table and enjoy some authentic Mexican food. The quesadilla is satisfies snack cravings while still preparing a meal, although it isn't a sandwich or a taco.


We heat quesadillas until the cheese melts, usually made with a corn tortilla and filled with cheese. Before crispy, it hits the grill or frier. Some people also include other fillings such as cooked sausage, chicken, pork, or beef. And don't forget the toppings. Fresh tomatoes, salsa, herbs, sour cream, guacamole, or chilies add a whole new level of flavor to the quesadilla. Don't forget to finish it with a squeeze of lime. The dish is complete whether you're serving it with an ice-cold beer or a margarita.

Families are also fond of quesadillas. Quesadillas are a common mealtime staple in households around the country. In fact, V&V Supremo recently discovered that one in three people are making quesadillas at least once a week. In addition, quesadillas have gone from authentic Mexican restaurant menus to more popular chain restaurants. Also high-end gourmet eateries include them on their menus. Their simplicity makes it easy to modify, and people of all ages love to eat to them.
