I love to make quesadilla especially as an iftar snack in the month of Ramadan. I feel it is a complete meal rather than calling it a snack. I have replaced its title which was supposed to be a 'Philly Cheese Steak Quesadilla' just to make it convenient for my readers. As it is a bit hard to find the authentic ingredients which go into this wrap. For example, a typical quesadilla is made of a corn tortilla, so here I have replaced it with a whole wheat flour tortilla. Similarly, the Provolone cheese has been substituted by the mozzarella cheese.  

If you see the video, the whole process looks very easy and simple with minimal ingredients, which makes it an ideal meal for kids who are fussy eaters. The more easy and simple the dish, the more popular it is. 

The sauce which you see in the picture is actually Spicy Mango Chili Dip which I had prepared to make Spicy Mango Chicken Wings. Also, check my very old post of Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich which is much similar to this one.
