Mini Fried Quesadillas

My mini fried quesadillas will take your taco night to a whole new level! The delicious fried quesadilla, dipped into my absolutely amazing cream: can you say game-changer. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! These are absolutely adorable and very kid friendly. They make a great appetizer for family gatherings or game days as well. You can top them off with some jalapeños to make them spicier and I always suggest a squeeze of lime juice or fresh cilantro.
