Loaded chicken quesadillas, or sincronizadas, with layers of flavors and plenty of melted cheese make this recipe a delicious treat!
Two flour tortillas filled with melted cheese and stacked together is a quesadilla, right? In Mexico, they refer to these as sincronizadas. "Syncronized" flour tortillas filled with a variety of fillings and plenty of melted cheese are delicious.
The more authentic Mexican 'quesadillas' are typically prepared with freshly made corn masa, NOT flour tortillas. The masa balls are pressed in a tortilla press then filled and cooked on a comal or fried. I tell my friends all the time how I never had a flour tortilla quesadilla until I moved to Texas. Before that it was strictly corn tortillas for quesadillas.
One of the more typical sincronizadas is filled with ham, tomatoes, onions and avocado. This recipe uses both ham and chicken, perfect for a hearty meal for two or an appetizer for four.
