Quick Chicken and Zucchini Quesadillas

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

Basic cheese-and-tortilla quesadillas are a quick snack, but by adding simple ingredients like sweet sautéed zucchini, smoky chipotle chiles, and shredded roast chicken, they become a weeknight meal that still takes almost no time to make. More

Ramp Week: Ramp and Chorizo Quesadillas

J. Kenji López-Alt 7 comments

Ramps do best when treated simply. Sautéed in butter with some runny eggs, grilled over live coals, or baked into a puffy frittata. Here's another one to add to that category: ramp quesadillas. More

Thanksgiving Leftovers: Roast Turkey and Black Bean Quesadillas

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 6 comments

There are a few tricks when it comes to making great quesadillas. Stuffing plays no small part in it. The day after Thanksgiving, that means turkey, along with shredded cheese (a good melting one like Jack or mozzarella-like Oaxacan string cheese), a secondary ingredient (you can go with leftover sweet potatoes or brussels sprouts or, as in this case, canned beans), and—and this is of vital importance—something pickled. Here's how it's done. More

Bar Bites: Grilled Tequila Chicken and Hatch Chile Quesadillas

Marvin Gapultos 3 comments

After roasting, peeling, and chopping fresh Hatch chiles, I like to throw them in between a couple of tortillas, along with some grated cheddar and jack cheeses, and some grilled chicken thighs that were previously bathed in tequila and lime juice. The heat and earthiness of the Hatch chiles are a great match to the citrus tang of the chicken thighs. More

What can be better than combining fresh crab meat, avocado, and cheese? This simple dinner is also served with a tomato and avocado concoction on the side to round it out. More

Dinner Tonight: Squash Blossom Quesadillas

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Squash blossoms are the only flowers I genuinely love cooking, probably because they can take the abuse. But while they don't have to be treated like dainty little treats, you also wouldn't want to completely cover up their flavor. Making a squash blossom quesadilla requires some restraint. More

Bar Bites: Crispy Pepper Jack Quesadillas

Jennifer Olvera 1 comment

Gooey, spicy quesadillas are an inexpensive, hangover-abating and crowd-pleasing snack. But crispy ones, like the kind you find in bars? They're hard to come by at home. The key to making them pub-worthy is having an appropriate cheese-to-tortilla ratio, a bit of oil, and high heat. More

Most of their business is take-out but sitting at one of the four folding tables is best, as to minimize the seconds in which the food moves from the griddle to your mouth. More

Cook the Book: Spinach Pie Quesadilla

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 4 comments

Think of it as a spanakopita minus the fussy phyllo, with all of those great eggy, cheesy Greek flavors crisped in a flour tortilla. Even if the ingredients list looks a little long for a quesadilla, the prep time is just a few minutes, simply a matter of softening garlic, onions, and scallions, wilting spinach, and mixing in an egg white, feta, and yogurt.

Scallion Pancakes + Cheddar Cheese = Awesome

J. Kenji López-Alt 19 comments

It was a pretty natural jump to create this quick mashup when I was rummaging through my fridge and found a whole slew of leftover scallions from my scallion pancake testing, along with a block of extra-sharp cheddar. More

Eat for Eight Bucks: Roasted Tomato Quesadillas with Cilantro Cream

Serious Eats Phoebe Lapine and Cara Eisenpress 3 comments

Cheese is the obvious answer to what goes inside a quesadilla. Freshly roasted tomatoes are a little more counterintuitive, when we're talking cheap and when the season is winter. But pints of cherry tomatoes are relatively flavorful, even in January, and roasting them brings out all their sweet fruity tones—so much so that a bite into one of these quesadillas could almost transport you to summertime. A dollop of herbed sour cream on top brings all the flavors together and makes the presentation plenty attractive to serve to a guest. More

Dinner Tonight: Quesadillas Stuffed with Greens and Feta

Serious Eats Blake Royer 13 comments

On its own, this filling would make a superb side dish; the briny and salty feta cheese play a perfect foil against the savory greens. But slipped inside a corn tortilla and griddled, along with a few cubes of diced mozzarella, the whole thing melts into an oozy, satisfying dinner. More
