Chicken Quesadillas

Rating: Unrated
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.

Spinach Whole Wheat Quesadillas

Rating: Unrated
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.

Mashed Potato Quesadilla

Rating: Unrated
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: Unrated
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: Unrated
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.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Rating: Unrated
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!

Samosadilla (Samosa Quesadilla)

Rating: Unrated
While it's true a perfectly made, expertly fried, and quickly served samosa is superior to this version, that can be a very rare combination of events. By comparison, this quesadilla approach is almost impossible to mess up, and if you use enough oil in your pan, you should be able to achieve a beautifully browned, crispy crust that rivals something out of a deep fryer.

2 Minute Cheese Quesadillas

Rating: Unrated
My 4-year-old loves these quick and easy cheese snacks. Just 2 ingredients and a microwave are needed! Cut crosswise into pizza shape slices. You can use any kind of cheese you want to and even any size flour tortilla. Serve with a little dish of ketchup to dip pieces into.

Quesadillas de Flor de Calabaza (Zucchini Blossom Quesadillas)

Rating: Unrated

These quesadillas de flor de calabaza are very popular in Mexico. The bacon grease gives the quesadillas another level of tastiness plus they crisp up beautifully. If bacon grease is unavailable, feel free to use lard, oil, or butter.
