Can't get more Mexican than that...

I don't know what is the reason for my intense Mexican cravings these past couple of weeks.. since that one time I went back to Kensington market after months of not being there and after seeing the mouth watering pictures of a book my mom brought me from Mexico, I have been cooking non stop Antojitos Mexicanos and Mexican Food throughout all the month of August!.. Last week I made these "Quesadillas Potosinas" that were just to die for!!! This is real great amazing Mexican Food and nothing is better than the grease Antojitos.. I mean I don't eat this type of food everyday .. so once in a while, I am allowed too!!.. And I think you too!! Sometimes you just have to let yourself get lost in the "closing your eyes while making a very happy face after having the best bite of your life" feeling.

Don't be afraid to try it... For some of you this might be too adventurous but if you really want to try some new and interesting flavours you should definitely try this.. You won't regret it!..

Quesadillas Potosinas



1/2 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon of vinegar
2 Chiles Anchos
salt to taste
370 g of tortilla masa


75g of tomatillos (grilled)
370g of tomatoes (grilled)
2 serrano chiles (grilled)
1 garlic clove (grilled)
1 1/2 tbsp of oil
salt to taste

Onion Topping

1/2 small onion sliced
1/2 cup of water
1 tsp of salt


The Onions:

Mix water and salt. Add the sliced onions and let it sit for 15 mins. Then drain and reserve.

The Dough:

Heat water, take away from heat and then add the vinegar, Chiles and let it sit for 35 mins. Process in a food processor and add salt to taste. Mix with the tortilla dough.

The Filling:

In a food processor, process the tomatillos, tomatoes, chiles, garlic. Fry the tomatillo sauce over a medium high heat pan for 5 mins, then lower the heat and cook until nice and thick. Approx. 15-20 mins. Then let it cool and mix with the cheese (Queso Fresco). Use a tortilla presser to make the tortillas, then pour a tsp of the mix and fold in half pressing the ends.

Fry the quesadillas in a sauce pan on both sides until cooked. With a paper towel remove the excess oil from the quesadilla. Then they are ready to be served!
