The culture of India and Mexico, though located at two separate ends of the globe, are strikingly similar! Our cultures not only love food, but we also share the love for the spiciest foods! We all enjoy Mexican dishes; especially because they are similar to the many Indian dishes we love and eat every day! Quesadilla is one dish most people love, and it is considered to be an ideal breakfast opti ... on. “Queso” in Spanish means “Cheese”, and the literal translation of “quesadilla” is “the cheesy little thing”! As a dish, quesadillas have evolved and changed over many years, since people experimented with so many versions of it. While the traditional quesadillas mostly contain cheese, beans, and spices, there are a lot of variations that are worth checking out! The best breakfast quesadilla idea is made from eggs! Nobody would say no to a slice of egg quesadilla, restaurant style. Making the dish is also very easy, especially because almost all the egg quesadilla ingredients can be easily found at home or the nearest store around you! One of the best things about the egg quesadilla recipe is that these are a delicious back-to-school dish, particularly when the morning routine gets very hectic for the family. To make it more appealing, cut the egg quesadilla into sizes of pizza slices while serving it to the kids. Egg Quesadillas are also kid-friendly finger foods, and you can easily wrap it in a paper towel and eat on the go when the family is in a rush.
