Add a spoonful of chopped green chilies and cilantro on top of the cheese if desired.

Fold the tortillas in half to create a half-moon shape, pressing gently to seal them.

Cook the Quesadillas:

Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a small amount of butter or vegetable oil and let it melt.

Place the folded tortillas in the skillet, cooking them in batches if necessary. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the tortillas are golden brown and crispy, and the cheese is melted.

Use a spatula to press down on the quesadillas gently as they cook to help the cheese melt evenly.

Remove the cooked quesadillas from the skillet and place them on a wire rack to cool slightly before cutting.

Cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve hot with sour cream and salsa on the side.
