IngredientsFlour tortillas Ham slices Cheese Please note: These are regular size tortillas and meant to serve one person. You can use instead the monster burritos size tortillas to make huge pieces and feed more people. Smaller tortillas will make fewer wedges and smaller pieces that you can serve as appetizers.
- Place flour tortilla on a hot griddle.
- Add ham and cheese on the tortilla.
- Place another flour tortilla on top.
- Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
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
Pro Tip: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.

This is the easiest recipe ever! You don’t even need to add any oil or butter to your pan. When I’m bored and can’t bother cooking I’ll make ham and cheese toasties for dinner, but next time I’ll definitely use tortillas and make sincronizadas instead! And by the way I love the name!
Sincronizadas are really yummy! Hope next time you try this recipe!

This is absolutely a new idea for me. Haven’t heard of this dish ever. I don’t eat ham so is there any substitute for it.
You can definitely use turkey or chicken slices.
Sincronizadas are one of those yummies that I haven’t tried in a while, and will be really excited to make at home. I remember trying them at my friends’ house, and they were amazing!
I forget this recipe too. So easy and yummy!
I make Sincronizadas all the time, the only thing is that I swap them for vegan ingredients but honestly the point is to see that vegan cheese melted and delicious. Ahhhh my mouth is watering.
So yummy I bet they are amazing too.
