2. Heat the oven to 200 degrees. Set the tortillas on a work surface. Put about 1/3 cup or more of the filling on half of each tortilla, spreading it to the edge and then folding the other half over it.

3. In a large frying pan, heat a tablespoon of oil. Add two of the quesadillas at a time on the pan and cook them about 2 minutes per side, until the cheese melts. Keep them warm in the oven while you cook the rest of them and add more oil as you go along.

4. Cut them into wedges and serve with sour cream.
