Quesdillas are one of our favorite quick dishes in the kitchen. Consisting simply of tortillas, cheese, and a little bit of butter or oil, this is such an easy, filling, and simple thing to make any time you’re in a bit of a rush.

Despite their simplicity, quesadillas can be modified in countless ways. The simple addition of one or two ingredients inside of your two tortillas can transform a quesadilla from dull to drab! Here are three suggestions for creative additions to your next quesadilla.


Mushrooms are a filling way to put a unique touch on a quesadilla. We love combining mushrooms with simple, creamy cheeses such as mozzarella in mine. They can be canned or fresh–either way, you’re going to love it!


Mmm, cheese and creamy avocado. The delectable texture that avocado acquires when it gets warm and is in contact with melty cheese in a quesadilla is an absolute treasure. You can take heart in knowing that it’s authentic too, being popular in Mexican gastronomy!


Hear us out here. You might want to brown your pineapple in a skillet or on a grill before placing it in a quesadilla, but if you combine it with a cheese that isn’t too sharp or aggressive, this combination is actually extremely delicious.
