Start with these quesadilla recipes for all the inspiration you need.

1. Chicken Quesadillas

Chicken Quesadillas

Chicken tastes great with melted cheese, but the addition of veggies in this, one of my favorite quesadilla recipes, really gives it something special.

Perhaps a little more effort than just cheese, but you’re sure to love this variation.


1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, diced

1 packet fajita seasoning

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 green bell peppers, chopped

2 red bell peppers, chopped

1 onion chopped

10 (10-inch) flour tortillas

1 8-ounce package shredded cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon bacon bits

1 8-ounce package shredded Monterey Jack cheese


Preheat the broiler and grease a cookie sheet.

Mix the fajita seasoning into the chicken and arrange on the baking sheet in a single layer.

Cook under the broiler until cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Heat the oil over medium heat and add the peppers, onions and chicken.

Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the vegetables soften.

Divide the chicken mixture on one half of each tortilla.

Sprinkle with the cheeses and bacon bits and fold in half.

Cook the quesadillas on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes, or until cheese melts.2

2. Smoked Salmon Quesadilla

Smoked Salmon Quesadilla

There’s not much I like more than smoked salmon, so this is a great recipe to satisfy that craving.

It’s not like anything you’ve ever had, but I promise that you’re going to want to make this one all the time.


8 flour tortillas, taco size

5 ounces garlic herb cheese, softened

6 ounces smoked salmon

2 tablespoons capers

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

½ cup sour cream

1 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped

1 avocado, sliced

1 ½ cups cherry tomatoes, halved

½ red onion, sliced

Crème fraiche, optional


Heat the grill over medium heat.

Oil the grate just before cooking.

Spread half of the herb cheese on 4 tortillas.

Layer with an even amount of smoked salmon, capers and jack cheese.

Top with the other 4 tortillas.

Stir together the dill and sour cream in a small bowl and set aside.

Cook the quesadillas on the grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until the cheese melts.

Garnish with avocado, tomatoes, onion and crème fraiche.
