Getting creative with quesadillas

We love quesadillas at this house. Easy, yummy, and kid friendly! And the best part, is you can put just about anything in them, and they'll taste great! Tonight we had pizza quesadillas, with sauce, pesto, and mozzarella cheese. You can add pepperoni, black olives, onions, just like you would top a pizza. We also had blue cheese and pear quesadillas and for dessert, quesadillas made with cream cheese and homemade strawberry jam. Yum! I find that quesadillas are easy to sneak vegetables in as well, and the kids have never turned one down..

I've listed some other thought starters here. Do you make any unusual combinations of quesadillas? I'd love to hear from you! Post them in the comments section.

peanut butter and banana

primavera- thinly sliced sauteed summer squash, onions and peppers with a smear of alfredo sauce, a sprinkle of garlic pepper and a combination of mozzarella and parmesan cheeses

bacon, corn, and cheddar cheese with a sprinkle of dill

cream cheese, apple sauce and a big sprinke of cinnamon

apple slices and gouda cheese

chicken, bbq sauce and any smoked cheese

buffalo chicken-chicken breast slices, blue cheese and buffalo sauce

chili and cheese

carrot cake- cream cheese, grated carrots and raisins

cream cheese and chocolate chips

sauteed onion, artichoke hearts, feta cheese

pesto, fresh mozzarella, spinach

Have fun!!

I love quesadillas, but I have a hard time finding sales or coupons on tortillas. Do you have any tips on finding cheap tortillas?

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Three ideas to pursue-
1) check your store brands. I can get Hy-Vee for $1.50, and they often take to $1.25 or less on sale.
2)ALDI. $1 for 10 flour tortillas. That's what we used last night.
3)If those routes come up empty, plan a few hours on one Sunday a month and make them. Really not as scary as it seems, and you will find lots of women who make them. Here's a great tutorial:
