For this sincronizadas recipe, we are using thinly sliced ham, not ham steaks. The beauty of quesadillas is that they are ready in minutes. Especially if the filling is cooked ahead of time like in Shrimp Poblano Quesadillas and leftover Instant Pot Birria Tacos, they are perfect for a quick snack or lunch.
What can you put in a quesadilla?
Sincronizadas Mexicanas are ham and cheese quesadillas made in flour tortillas, and depending the cook, you might also find tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, grilled peppers, or whatever your heart desires.
Types of Cheeses To Use:
- Monterey Jack
- Queso Asadero
- Queso Manchego
- Queso Oaxaca
Use shredded cheese or thinly sliced cheese. It will melt faster. Thicker pieces of cheese will take longer to melt. Only serving one person? Add the ham and cheese to ONE HALF of the tortilla. Fold over the other half.
What is quesadilla cheese?
There is such a thing in Mexico as “Quesadilla Cheese,” and you’ll see it labeled as such. In some Mexican markets in the US, you can find this type of cheese. It’s basically a creamy, semi-soft white cheese that melts well. Can you use corn tortillas to make this recipe? Of course! Mexicans, for the most part, will use corn tortillas for quesadillas. Traditionally, though, flour tortillas are used for sincronizadas.
How Long Does It Last?
Sincronizadas will last up to 2 days. Freezing can make the tortillas mushy. To reheat from the freezer, warm up on a hot griddle.
