The Sincronizadas

The sincronizadas can be seen as the Mexican version of a “sandwich with tortillas"; or the adorned cousins of the quesadillas ; as it consists of 2 tortillas that have in between a layer of melted cheese and a ham slice .

As you can see this is a very simple recipe... but they are very good – and when
salsa is added to the sincronizadas, its flavor becomes phenomenal.

beauty of the sincronizadas is that they can be eaten at any hour of the day. They can be served as appetizer , as breakfast and even as a main course.

– In fact you can prepare a pretty and complete plate with a sincronizada accompanied of
refried beans , mixed salad , guacamole and Mexican cream.
