The best thing about homemade quesadillas vs. restaurant quesadillas is how much healthier you can make them! When you're out to eat and you order dillas, you get about 4x the necessary amount of cheese, a huge tortilla and very little "stuffing"! My solution? Make them at home, stuff them to the brim, use a smaller tortilla and cut back on the cheese!
