Home | Blog | Cooking

Quesadillas are a staple of Mexican food. Always filled with cheese, they are warmed over a hot pan until the cheese is melted.  Quesadillas are also a great way to reinvent leftovers. Here’s our selection of Quesadilla Recipes, that are easy to make and perfect for a snack, lunch or light dinner. Not too sure what quesadillas are, or how to make them? Be sure to check out our blog on How To Make Quesadillas, that tells you everything you need to know.

1. Easy Chicken Quesadillas With Chipotle Salsa

Easy Chicken Quesadillas With Chipotle Salsa

First up for our Quesadilla Recipes are these Easy Chicken Quesadillas With Chipotle Salsa.  This is a great recipe to do early in the week, after that Sunday roast, as it incorporates the breast and dark meat from half a cooked roast chicken. We have made our own fresh salsa, but if you wanted it even easier you could use our Gran Luchito Chipotle Salsa.


2. Beef Quesadilla

Beef Quesadilla

A classic Beef Quesadilla is a must-try dish! For these ones we have used the economical chuck steak. As well as being marinated in our Chipotle Paste, cumin seeds, white wine, red wine vinegar, oregano, soy sauce, and black pepper have also been added. It’s then slow cooked for a couple of hours until it’s so tender that it falls apart.


3. Vegetarian Quesadilla

Vegetarian Quesadilla’s are the ultimate meat-free snack, starter or light meal. In these we have used tomatoes, yellow peppers, red onion, our Serrano Green Chillies as well as our smoky Refried Beans. A bit of fresh coriander and lots of grated manchego or vegan cheese round them off perfectly! Serve with guacamole and sour cream.


4. Pulled Pork Quesadilla

Pulled Pork Quesadilla

This is such a delicious one of our Quesadilla Recipes, and using leftover pulled pork is the way they are done. Crispy Burrito Wraps stuffed full of smoky pulled pork, caramelised red onion, toasted corn kernels and oodles of melted stringy cheese all served with the fresh flavours of our perfect guacamole.


5. Quesadilla with Cactus

Our Quesadilla with Cactus recipe is a super easy and authentic Mexican recipe. A humble recipe, made with just our Sliced Cactus, some Tomatillo Salsa, grated cheese and fresh coriander all fried up in our soft Burrito Wraps. They’re similar to ones you’d find on the Mexican street food scene!


6. Fajita Quesadilla

Fajita Quesadilla

Anyone for a Fajita Quesadilla? How delicious do these look? They are a nice variation on classic fajitas, with scrummy melted cheese and toasted wraps! In short, for these we’ve used rib-eye steak marinated in Chipotle Paste, along with the classic fajita ingredients – peppers, onions and cheese. They are topped off with our Jalapeño & Pineapple, which takes them to the next level.


7. Mushroom Quesadilla

Mushroom Quesadilla

These Mushroom Quesadillas are a really tasty meat-free option. Mushrooms, Cantina Beans, red onions, spinach, mozzarella and Tomatillo Salsa are all toasted up in our soft flour Street Tacos. Such an easy dish to whip together, yet utterly satisfying and totally moreish. The ingredients go so well together, you’ll just keep coming back for more!


8. Easy Quesadillas with Gran Luchito Mango Salsa

Finally, for this very simple recipe we have used chicken breast with mozzarella, fresh coriander and our very own Mango Habanero Salsa. An easy to make recipe, with lots of flavour. Having said that, these quesadillas pack a bit of a punch with the hot salsa, just so that you know!
