Quesadilla. This quesadilla from Guatemala is a coffeecake, made with a goodly amount of cheese, for which the cake is named. "Queso" means cheese. This coffee cake is not too sweet, but just enough to make it a delight to have with a nice cup of coffee.
Rellenitos de Platano "There is one ingredient missing on this recipe. Add 1 stick of cinnamon to the water when cooking the plantains (remove the stick before mashing them). Do the same with the black beans. This is the original Guatemalan recipe. Some people also like to add a square of "cinnamon chocolate" which you can get at Mexican or Central American stores."

Dobladas(Guatemala) This makes a nice, light supper or lunch. Or cut into wedges and serve as appetizers. I'd even eat it for breakfast! Dobladas means folded and that's just what you do with the tortillas. If you can't find Farmer cheese(or queso fresco or queso de capas), use cottage cheese and strain in a cheesecloth for several hours in a cool place.
