The unicorn trend that has been sweeping the world is pretty magnificent. Instagrammable, tasty and full of fun. The latest food item to join the bandwagon is the mexican Quesadilla.
Food historians and savvy Instagram users can trace the unicorn quesadilla can back to El Premio Mayor, a chain of Mexican restaurants based in Fresno, CA. The hashtag #unicornquesadilla shows El Premio Mayor serving a few of the cheesy, rainbow delights over the weekend.

When the cheese is heated up and lucky diners pull the quesadillas apart, the magic reveals itself in melty, ooey, gooey, delicious strings of unicorn goodness report Teen Vogue.
If you want to give this trend a try on your own, just add a few drops of food colouring to your tortilla dough mix to create a colourful wrap. You can even experiment with different types of cheeses and fillings to make your own Unicorn delights.
