  • Melt butter in a pan, warm tortilla for about 20 seconds, sprinkle half the tortilla with cheese, top up with cooked vegetables and more cheese. 
  • Fold the empty side of tortilla over fillings and cook until tortilla turn crisp and golden. 
  • Carefully flip tortilla and cook until the other side turns crispy and golden. 
  • Immediately take tortilla out of the pan.

Do not use too much butter/oil while cooking quesadilla as it makes quesadilla soggy and greasy. 
To get crispy quesadilla, just add a little oil/butter enough to coat the base of the pan while cooking quesadilla. 
Cook quesadilla on moderate heat so the cheese melts slowly. High heat results in browning tortilla quickly but cheese may not melt completely. 
Cook both sides long enough to ensure tortilla turns deep golden and crispy.
