            Am I the only one that is bothered by him calling it “ Tex-Mex” ? It’s just a Mexican dish. Texas didn’t come up with it inspired from mex.

                                        Oh man, watching you grate that cheese reminds me of when I accidentally grated a chunk out of my hind doing it the way you are doing. Now I hold whatever it is I'm grating with a dish towel.

                                                        Seeing this vids makes me think what's the difference between quesadilla and calzone? Or they are the same thing?

                                                          Calzones are sealed and generally use more Italian cheeses and fillings. Also are baked instead of fried.

Continue to cook until crispy. This way you get a wonderful quesadilla with a gooey inside and crispy cheese outside.
