Quesadillas doradas literally means “golden quesadillas,” a reference to the color the tortillas take on after deep-frying. “Fried quesadillas are a very typical Mexico City street food,” according to Chef Gabriela Cámara, the celebrated chef of Mexico City’s Contramar, San Francisco’s Cala, Onda in Los Angeles, and author of the cookbook, My Mexico City Kitchen.
