Me: Does a quesadilla count as a sandwich?
E: I want to say yes because I love quesadillas.
Me: There’s a piece of tortilla folded over with filling, or two pieces of tortilla with filling. I think it’s closer to a sandwich than the crepe.

From Wikipedia:
quesadilla (pron.: /ˌkeɪsəˈdiːjə/) is a flour tortilla or a corn tortilla filled with a savory mixture containing cheese, other ingredients, and/or vegetables, (often) then folded in half to form a half-moon shape.

And from the section called “American Quesadilla”:
The quesadilla is a regional favorite in the Southwest, United States where it is analogous to a ‘grilled cheese sandwich’….A flour tortilla is heated on a griddle, then flipped and sprinkled with a grated, melting cheese (queso quesadilla), such as Monterey Jack, Cheddar cheese or Colby Jack. Once the cheese melts, other ingredients; such as shredded meat, peppers, onions or guacamole may be added, and it is then folded and served.

What do you think? Does a quesadilla count as a sandwich?
