Everyone knows it: tacos and quesadillas are two of the most popular Mexican dishes. Both are delicious, fun, versatile, and easy to make. But which one is best? In today’s post, we tackle this savory question.
Tacos vs Quesadilla: Which One Is Best?
Take your seats and pay attention, because two heavyweights of Mexican food are about to square up against each other. May the most delicious win!
In Favor of Tacos
Ask anyone around the world to name a Mexican dish and chances are good that the answer will be “tacos.”
Tacos are the kings of Mexican food, and not only abroad. Regardless of social status, all Mexican neighborhoods have a taqueria they trust to churn out their favorite tacos, from al pastor to chorizo and everything in between.
Tacos are like the center around which the entire Mexican culinary tradition has been built. This simple, versatile, and appetizing idea has defined the character of Mexican food. spearheading its rise to global fame.
In Favor of Quesadillas
Quesadillas might not be as popular as tacos, but they are slowly moving up the ladder.
The reason is easy to see: quesadillas are delicious and easy to prepare, making them a great alternative for those lazy nights where you want something quick but warm and yummy.
Even if tacos are convenient, quesadillas beat them in that department. While you usually need some type of prepared meat to make tacos (which involves more cooking), a basic quesadilla requires only two ingredients: tortillas and cheese.
Split decision! Both tacos and quesadillas are great, and the one you choose will depend on the context.
If what you want is to sink your teeth into some savory meat, tacos should be your first option. If you are in a more casual, less carnivorous mood, then quesadillas are the alternative.
