I am honored to share with you a wonderful recipe from a beautiful Central American country: El Salvador. Known as Pulgarcito de América (the Tom Thumb of the Americas) for the size of its territory, it offers a tropical climate and active volcanoes, beautiful scenery, beaches and mountains, and a cozy atmosphere no matter where you go.
Salvadoran cuisine relies one hundred percent on indigenous influences, derived from the fusion of roots throughout time. Its traditional dishes are delicious and that is why I am delighted to show you how to make this Salvadoran quesadilla: a moist and sweet sponge cake made of cheese.
It is different from the Mexican quesadilla known all over the world - different from the Peruvian, the Chilean, etc., which are salty flour tortillas filled with cheese, chicken, seafood and more.
Join me on my imaginary trip to Salvadoran culinary traditions and let’s make this delicious Salvadoran quesadilla together!
