While we love a good elaborate enchilada preparation, sometimes you just feel like Mexican food without the hassle (or delivery guy). That's what we reach for triple-tested Mexican: Authentic Recipes From South of the Border, by test kitchen guru Pamela Clark. Up next, corn and goat cheese quesadillas.

A quesadilla (from queso, the spanish word for cheese) is a tortilla "sandwich" containing cheese and any of a wide number of spicy filling ingredients, which is grilled, fried or toasted and usually served with salsa. We cooked these quesadillas in a frying pan but you can cook quesadillas, one at a time, in a heated sandwich press, if you have one.
