In Mexican cuisine, the sincronizada is a tortilla-based sandwich. They are frequently confused with quesadillas, due to their resemblance to "quesadillas" sold in the United States. (U.S. quesadillas are usually made with flour tortillas rather than molded from masa in the Mexican style).

Sincronizadas (so called because the top and bottom tortilla are "synchronized" together) sandwich ingredients between two tortillas. The sandwich is then grilled.

The difference between Sincronizadas & quesadillas

This is only a rough guide, there are many, many regional differences.

Serving suggestions

Serve hot with guacamole and a green salad


Change the Cheddar cheese for a Mexican type of cheese that is called "quesillo/queso oaxaca" which can be easily torn into thinner strands and melts faster.

I usually put some mayonnaise on the tortillas then the ham,cheese, a bit of fried beans, and cover it with the other tortilla with mayonnaise and another slice of ham. -- User:Pepekike 04:28, 21 July 2011
