Gringas (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈɡɾiŋɡas], plural and feminine form of gringo) are a variety of quesadillas which consist of flour tortillas filled with cheese, al pastor meat, and pineapple.[1] They are then grilled in the same manner as a quesadilla. Some attribute the name to the use of white flour tortillas.[2]
