Do not confuse this rich, cakey cheesebread with the Mexican appetizer, quesadilla. This recipe comesfrom the small village of Rosario de La Paz in El Salvador. Flavoredwith Parmesan-type cheese, “queso seco”, and sprinkledwith crunchy sesame seeds, its a delicious blend of sweetand savory. Enjoy it by itself or with a scoop of vanilla icecream and a hot cup of coffee.
