Quesadilla Recipes That Go Way Beyond Cheese (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

When it comes to easy recipes to make at home, there's nothing quite like a cheesy, melted quesadilla -- for many of us, it was one of the first meals we learned to make on our own. But most people think they don't need a quesadilla recipe to whip up a batch at home -- after all, it's just cheese and tortilla right? Wrong!

If you think the classic is the only (or even the best) way to make a quesadilla, you're going to need to open your mind (and mouth) to these next-level versions. Whether your new favorite recipe is a dessert quesadilla, breakfast quesadilla, or even a quesadilla pie, we can guarantee you'll find one among these 35 Tex-Mex favorites. Check out the full slideshow at the bottom, but here's a sneak preview of some of the best:
