Prosciutto De Parma Quesadillas Recipe

Prosciutto de Parma Quesadillas make a great lunch or dinner entree – plus these could be served as an appetizer.  A quesadilla is a tortilla, usually a corn tortilla but also sometimes made with a flour tortilla – a tortilla folded over a filling.  “Queso” is cheese in Spanish.  Quesadillas originated in central Mexico and the southwest United States.  Karen likes to serve these quesadillas with her Orca Bean, Jalapeno Chile, and Yellow Rice Soup.
