Kara D's Cheese Quesadillas
Why I Love This Recipe
My uncle used to make me Quesadillas a few years ago, and I make them all the time because they're so easy, quick, and are a great snack! I love sour cream and guacamole, which fit very well in cheese quesadillas! CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: In addition to the pure substances and mixtures shown below, the fresh guacamole, flour tortillas, and the finished quesadillas are all heterogeneous mixtures. The pinch of salt is a pure substance, and the cheddar cheese, olives, and sour cream are homogenous mixtures. The olives being chopped, and cutting the finished quesadillas are both physical changes. The quesadilla browning when it's baked and the sudden change in smell both indicate that chemical changes are taking place.
