Sunday Supper, Crazy Good Quesadilla

Quesadillas are one of my favorite last minute dinners

Not only are they quick and easy to make,

you can fill them with just about anything!

Now when I tell you what’s inside this one,

you’ll probably think I’ve lost my mind

or that I’m recalling pregnancy cravings 😂

This quesadilla is like a crazy combination

of chicken wings and Hawaiian pizza…

You know how BBQ chicken wings

are often served with a bleu cheese dipping sauce…

and Hawaiian pizza is topped with ham and pineapple…

Well, this quesadilla has a layer of BBQ sauce,

topped with bleu cheese crumbles

and chopped cooked chicken,

then chopped pineapple

pieces of ham,

and finally a generous sprinkle of grated Gruyère cheese

Another tortilla goes on top

and the quesadillas are ready for cooking~

I gave these a spray of olive oil

and baked them on a sheet pan in the oven,

but you can also cook them in a skillet

with a little olive oil and butter,

flipping to get them crisp on both sides

The bleu cheese and the Gruyere are the “glue”

that holds everything together

As the quesadillas cook, the cheese melts…

It oozes out the edges a little,

making your mouth water as you cut them 😋

They taste amazing!

This crazy combo is sweet, savory, tangy and delicious!

I also made one with bacon instead of ham,

so good!

Adjust ingredient amounts according

to the number of quesadillas you’re making

These make great appetizers too~

  1. That filling is bomb! No wonder it’s crazy good. I want some too 🙂

  2. We do quesadillas here a lot, especially for fast suppers. I like using shrimp that I keep in the freezer, it only takes 10 minutes to defrost them. Lots of cheese and some green onions, with a little avocado is our favorite.

    I love quesadillas too. If they are only available on an appetizer menu, I have been known to order them as my entree. This is a crazy combination, but I’m sure it was delicious.
