The Divisive Sandwich Debate: Quesadillas, Tacos, and More

HomeBlogThe Divisive Sandwich Debate: Quesadillas, Tacos, and More

When you think of a sandwich, what immediately comes to mind? Many might think of the classic peanut butter and jelly combo, just like they used to eat in elementary school. Or perhaps a gooey grilled cheese sandwich or a fresh BLT comes to mind instead.

The Divisive Sandwich Debate: Quesadillas, Tacos, and More

Regardless of what kind of sandwich you thought of, it’s probably close to the traditional definition of a sandwich, consisting of 2 (or more) slices of bread with delicious fillings between them. However, when you extend the definition of a sandwich to fillings between any type of grain, the lines become a little blurry. For instance, some people argue that a quesadilla is a sandwich, as it’s melted cheese between two tortillas. But this isn’t where the sandwich debate ends.

If there’s just one grain that encompasses different fillings, such as a wrap or burrito made with a single tortilla, is that still a sandwich? Many claim that the wrap is, in fact, a type of sandwich, since the tortilla “sandwiches” the fillings on either side.

But where does this argument end? Are tacos sandwiches? Are hot dogs sandwiches? These are all questions that have been posed on countless online forums, leading to lively debates on all sides of the argument.
