Chicken Quesadillas

Rating: 4.62 stars
This is a great recipe for parties. I freeze the leftovers; they reheat quite well. The zesty chicken and cooked peppers are a succulent delight when mixed with the melted cheeses. Cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve with sour cream and salsa.

Grilled Chicken Quesadillas

Rating: 4.28 stars
This delicious recipe is prepared by using adobo seasoned grilled boneless chicken thighs, layering tortillas with a combination of the chicken, cheese, and onion, and heating directly on the grill. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Spinach Whole Wheat Quesadillas

Rating: 4.54 stars
This is a super quick, easy, and light dinner. This also makes a great snack or appetizer. It looks like a lot of spinach at first, but it shrinks down a lot in no time during cooking. Other types of tortillas can be used if whole wheat isn't available. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Rating: 4.62 stars
My vegetarian husband goes crazy over these every time! They are really cheesy, a little bit spicy, and a little bit sweet. Feel free to play around and add chicken or veggies, if you desire. Don't forget the salsa and sour cream!

Jalapeno Popper Quesadillas

Rating: 4.3 stars
This is a great alternative to deep-fried jalapeno poppers that's much easier to make and healthier too. Slice into small wedges to use as an appetizer, or enjoy as light meatless Monday dinner.

Mushroom and Black Bean Quesadillas

Rating: 4.58 stars
This is one of my favorite quick and easy last-minute dinners. I created this recipe while rifling through my pantry in search of a new simple and healthy dinner. I love this recipe because the possibilities and variations are virtually endless!

Mashed Potato Quesadilla

Rating: 4.26 stars
I had something like this at a restaurant last night and I had to try to duplicate it at home! It reminds me of a perogies! I think that this recipe can really be played up with just about anything you like with potatoes! This can be a super fast meal if you use the heat and serve bacon and premade mashed potatoes!

Santa Fe Veggie Quesadillas

Rating: 4.41 stars
I've made this quick and colorful appetizer for many great dinner parties. Serve with fresh salsa, guacamole or sour cream as dipping sauces--or by itself. Works great on a large scale as well. Thawed and drained frozen veggies may be substituted for canned. Look for the combination of corn, red pepper and black beans in the grocery store's frozen food section.

Andouille and Poblano Quesadillas

Rating: 4.64 stars
These quesadillas are unique and filling - with a bit of a kick! If you have any leftover filling, scramble with some eggs for a Tex-Mex breakfast.

Corn Truffle (Huitlacoche) Quesadillas

Rating: 3 stars
Huitlacoche (pronounced wee-tlah-KOH-cheh) is a delicious corn fungus packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Known also as the Mexican truffle, it has been considered a delicacy in Mexico for thousands of years and its popularity is rapidly growing in the US and Europe. Enjoy it in these crispy quesadillas.

Spicy Breakfast Quesadillas

A spicy and fun breakfast or brunch your whole family will love, with sausage, egg, cheese, and green onions. This is such a versatile dish. I basically make them with whatever I have on hand at the time. Serve with salsa, hot sauce, and sour cream, if desired.
