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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
Making the most of simple, fresh ingredients found at your local Farmer's Market, these quesadillas make great appetizers or a quick and healthy meal. Serve while hot with your favorite salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.
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.
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.
I came up with this one night when I didn't know what to cook. I had leftover steak in the fridge, so I decided to get creative. These came out wonderful! The measurements are approximations, so feel free to change them according to your tastes. Serve with salsa, guacamole, and sour cream.
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.
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!
I wanted to make something using orange and black colors for Halloween, and came up with sweet potato, black bean and cheese quesadillas. These wedges are comfortingly good at any time of year, but especially cute for Halloween! My kids love them plain...I love them with my spicy cilantro salsa!
This is a delicious quesadilla recipe using ingredients like low-fat sour cream, refried black beans, and whole-wheat tortillas. It's so easy to put together in less than 20 minutes and it tastes fabulous! Feel free to serve with salsa and sour cream for dipping.
I make this for Meatless (lacto-ovo) Monday Meals. It is a big hit! The flavor profile is complex and savory and you can add a dash of hot sauce to spice things up even more. I cut the pizzadillas in half for the kids.
It's like a Mexican version of a BLT! You choose whether you want it smoky or zesty by the flavor of petite diced tomatoes you use. Crispy bacon and fresh basil add a new variation to the classic quesadilla. A perfect party finger food or quick snack.
Turkey and cranberry quesadillas. You can use any cheese in place of the Cheddar cheese, if desired. To flip the quesadilla, place a plate over the skillet and turn the skillet over; slide quesadilla back into skillet!
