Duck quesadillas: are they ever for real?

tatamagouche | Mar 3, 2008 08:39 AM

I've never had one that really made me understand why someone thought it was a good idea to use duck rather than chicken or pork. Somehow its more complex flavor always seems to me to get lost in the tortilla-cheese-etc. shuffle.

My questions:

1) Are duck quesadillas common/traditional in any particular area of Mexico, or is this a nuevo/north-of-the-border invention?

2) If the former, how are they most likely to be prepared?

3) Either way, what do you think makes for a good version of this dish?

Thanks much!
