One For IHOP

We haven't really made a dessert here at MFE, and this isn't really one either, unless you put ice cream on it. This is an attempt at a dessert quesadilla, but it turned into something like Mexican Crêpes. That is actually catchy, I'll call it that.

Mexican Crêpes
Dessert Quesadillas
(serves 2-4)

4 tortillas
6-8 medium sized strawberries, thinly sliced
2 tbsp ricotta cheese
2 tbsp cream cheese
2 tsp sugar
chocolate chips
powdered sugar

In a small bowl combine the cream cheese, the ricotta cheese and the sugar. Spread this mixture on just over half of each of the four tortillas. Cover that same half with the sliced strawberries and chocolate chips. Generously butter a pan on medium heat. When the butter begins to sizzle, add your first tortilla that's been smothered. After about one and one half minutes, fold the side without the cheese mixture onto the side with the cheese mixture. It's important to do it in that order because the toppings can easily slide off the tortilla and into your pan, making it less delicious. After about another minute and a half, flip the currently-half-moon-shaped tortilla over. Continue cooking the quesadilla until it's the desired color. Remove from the pan and add powdered sugar and sliced strawberries for a garnish.
