Appetizers Dinner Party

Quick Quesadillas

National Quesadilla Day is September 25 – Easy, quick and delicious, no holiday needed for Quesadillas at our house, count me in!

The easy plan;

  • Start with cooked ingredients.  Except the cheese of course no need to cook that ahead of time.  Flour tortillas come in so many shapes and flavors, experiment.
  • Take one tortilla and lay it in a lightly greased pan. Add your cooked ingredients and put the second tortilla on. Push down with a spatula, sprinkle with garlic salt. Cook on medium heat covered for 1-2 min, flip and do the other side. 
  • Let them cool on a plate for a minute or two and cut with Kitchen Scissors easily.

Quick Quesadillas

Quick Quesadilla ideas listed below, which one will you try for the National Quesadilla Day?

Veggie Quesadillas 

Grill veggies and fruit, then dice before placing on your tortilla, top with a drizzle of plain yogurt and a squeeze of lime.

Roast Beef Quesadillas

Fresh Roast Beef from the deli or even the frozen “steak um” style beef works great for these.  Top with a sharp cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce.

Cheese Quesadillas

Good melting cheese like a Mexican shredded, served with a fruit salsa.  Fruit salsas are easy to make, just small dice your favorite fruits and maybe drizzle with a little honey.

Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas

Buffalo Chicken Dip (an easy version to make this can be found on my Buffalo Chicken Dip 2 Easy Ways article) with a little extra blue cheese and serve with blue cheese dressing.

Fiesta QuesadillasSpread avocado on your tortillas and sprinkle with black beans, corn, diced jicama and a shredded white cojita or mozzarella cheese and Tajin Clasico Seasoning.  Serve with sour cream with some extra Tajin Clasico Seasoning mixed in.  I love that seasoning!
