Quesadillas are so much fun!

Pin It

Make the chicken ahead of time in the pressure cooker cooking it in water with the spices you like to infuse it, or buy it pre-cooked frozen and "nuke" it in the microwave, or get a rotisserie chicken and shred it.

I use my WP immersion blender and prep it all ahead of time...chopping chicken, peppers, onions, whatever i am using. I have it all ready and in the frige for when I am making quesadillas.

I spread the shredded cheese all over the tortillas to the edge to "glue" it shut and put the innards to about 1 inch to edge...cheese on top and bottom too to "glue" it.

If you have small children who are picky,chop veggies tiny to put in it. They wont' even know its there!

The sky is the limit with can use just cheese, add veggies of your choice or even seafood!

Don’t forget to top them off with Salsa, Avocado or Guacamole and or Sour Cream

Have fun! You can make them on a Panini Grill or a quesadilla maker. The gas grill, even a cast iron from pan with some flipping.

Wolfie's panini grill is awesome, like all of his appliances! (Can ya tell I have a thing for Wolfgang Puck?? He's so cute too)

Breakfast Quesadillas

1/4 c monterey jack or cheddar cheese shredded

2 flour toritillas

2 large eggs

1 T chives

precooked bacon, whatever you want!




beat eggs with chives, salt and pepper and pour slowly onto panini or quesadilla plates, cook egg 2-3 min and remove from griddle

put tortilla on panini or queadilla plates, cheese, egg, and cheese and tortilla on top close lid 3 min or until tortilla is lightely browned.

top with salsa

Cheese and Bean

1 16 oz can refried beans (or just canned beans of your choice)

1/4 c shredded cheese (whatever you like cheddar, monterey, etc)

1 small onion, minced

3 T pickled or fresh jalapeno peppers, chopped

6 flour tortillas Cheesy Quesadillas

1/2 c sour cream

1/2 c shredded cheese (cheddar, monterey jack)

2 scallions

1 t chili powder

1 T minced cilantro

4 flour tortillas

Combine first six ingredients and spread onto toritills leaving 1/2 inch space around edges.

cook 3-4 min

Veggie Quesadillas

You can sub in zucchini or whatever you have or like.

1/2 c bell pepper and onion strips

1 t of your fav fajita seasoning

4 flour tortillas

1/2 c shredded cheddar or jack cheese


sour cream

guacamole sprinkle some cheese on tortilla, then veggies, salsa and cheese again. cook 3-4 min, slice and top with sour cream or guacamole

More options:

Ricotta, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, sausage. Pepperoni pizza, broccoli, ham,

etc anything that goes with cheese will work.

Some other options without cheese..

Peanut butter and Jelly or banana...


1 c canned apple pie filling or make your own (sliced apples, sugar, and cinnamon, all spice and nutmeg)

powdered sugar and cinnamon to garnish

spread onto tortillas leaving half inch around edges with tortilla and shut the lid. 3-4 min till dessert...

this would work with sliced bananas mixed with alittle sour cream and cinnamon
