I made up this ham and pineapple quesadilla recipe when I worked at a cafe and was craving Hawaiian-style pizza. We were serving Mexican food that day so I had to work with the ingredients on hand. I have made this repeatedly since. My favorite quesadilla. I like to mix sour cream and salsa in a small bowl and dip it.

Flip toasted tortilla over, sprinkle with mozzarella and Cheddar cheese blend, layer with hot ham, spread with desired amount of salsa, sprinkle with desired amount of pineapple, and fold tortilla in half.

  • Turn quesadilla over and continue to cook until cheese is melted and tortilla has reached desired crispness, 2 to 4 minutes. Cut into wedges with a pizza cutter. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve with sour cream.

7.29.20 Love quesadillas, you can pack just about anything inside, and they’re good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I only made one for lunch today, so I just eyeballed the fillings and loaded it up. I made a Hawaiian pizza last week, had some fresh pineapple left in the fridge, and this certainly did have similar flavor. It’s definitely sweet, and that pineapple tamed the hot salsa. Didn’t have any sour cream on hand, but next time certainly will add that. iamscaredofflies, thanks for sharing your favorite quesadilla recipe. Read More
