Quesadilla Recipes That Go Way Beyond Cheese

We're mixing things up.

When it comes to easy recipes to make at home, the cheese quesadilla wins the prize for being one of the simplest. For many of us, it was one of the first meals we learned to make on our own -- that and a plate of eggs. It's simplicity is one of the reasons people wrongly think they don't need a quesadilla recipe. 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, we're about to change your mind with these next-level quesadilla recipes. We've got recipes that sneak brussels sprouts and bacon in between the tortillas. Some that are loaded with salmon and mango. And even one recipe that is deep fried -- we couldn't help ourselves.

All of them are proof that quesadilla recipes are totally relevant -- and 100 percent delicious.
