Sincronizadas are a modern treat of Mexican cuisine consisting of a couple of flour or corn tortillas (depending on your preference) stuffed with ham and cheese. They’re similar to quesadillas, but the difference is that sincronizadas are made with two tortillas and quesadillas are made with only one folded flour tortilla. Another difference is that quesadillas may be stuffed with many ingredients, while sincronizadas are only stuffed with ham and cheese. My version of sincronizada is very similar to the quesadilla because I do like to stuff it with more than just ham and cheese. I think it’s a great way to make our children eat more vegetables, because you can add tomato, mushrooms, onions, asparagus and every vegetable you wish. You can also use different types of tortillas. For example, you can use whole wheat, blue corn, flax or vegetable, red or green tortillas. We eat a lot of black beans at home, whether they’re fresh or in their ground form, and that’s another ingredient that I like to add to my sincronizadas. They give them a great taste, help all the ingredients blend well, and I’m able to use the beans in another way, so they won’t get tired. I hope you like my sincronizadas; they’re very easy to make.
