Lunchtime has never tasted so good.

Air Fryer Quesadillas

3. Air Fryer Quesadillas

If you’ve ever made a quesadilla only to have it burn on one side with the cheese unmelted in the middle, try this recipe.

It’s a simple vegetarian option featuring beans and cheese. And since you’ll use the Air Fryer, you know it’ll cook evenly.

Not only will you have perfectly crisp edges, but the middle will be ooey-gooey and to die for.

Oh, and feel free to jazz up the recipe with any extras you like. Throw in tofu crumbles, onions, veggies, and more!

4. Spinach, Mushroom, and Jack Quesadillas

Simple yet so tasty, this recipe calls for just a few ingredients. But it’s so yummy, you’ll want it as a snack, meal, or appetizer every week.

I love mushrooms in vegetarian and vegan meals because they have a rich, meaty texture.

Throw in some spinach and cheese, and you might even think you’re enjoying beef!

5. Mediterranean Quesadilla with Spinach and Feta

Perfect for busy weeknights, this fusion of Mediterranean and Mexican flavors is a thing of beauty. 

Grab a couple of flour tortillas and fill them with salty feta and mozzarella. Then throw in some fresh tomatoes, leafy spinach, and spicy red onion. 

I think you’ll love the fresh and vibrant flavors in this quesadilla!

6. Vegetarian Quesadilla with Pesto

I love all of the meaty veggies stuffed into this quesadilla. Not to mention, the pesto is killer!

Zucchini and baby eggplant are soft and tender, with such wonderful flavor. Add in some flavor-packed pesto for the ultimate snack or meal. 

Basil pesto goes so well with veggies and cheese here. But feel free to use a different flavor, like sun-dried tomato pesto!

7. Easy Veggie Quesadillas with Melted Mozzarella and Cheddar

Speaking of pesto: one bite of this red pesto and veggie quesadilla will make you swoon.

Ideal for a light dinner or quick lunch, it’s filled with the most delicious sauce and tons of cheese. 

Add some tomatoes, peppers, and spinach for nutrients and color, and you’re all set.

8. Brie Quesadilla

This is not your average quesadilla.

Leave it to Brie to take a simple classic and make it sophisticated. 

Melty Brie cheese gets paired with sweet grapes and scallions (for a little bite) in this stunningly elegant quesadilla.

You just can’t beat this sweet-spicy-creamy combo. Trust me, these unique and playful brie quesadillas are addictive. 

9. Roasted Veggie Cheese Quesadillas

Roasted veggie and cheese quesadillas are super easy to make and totally crave-worthy. 

Roasting the veggies makes them sweeter and adds a deeper flavor that pops in every mouthful.

The tortillas are perfectly crisp on the outside, and melty cheese is always a win. 

Customize the ingredients however you like, but don’t skip the roasting. It’s key to that caramelized finish.

10. Grilled Vegetable Quesadillas

Don’t want to crank up the oven? Try grilling your veggies instead!

They’ll get the same boost of flavor with the added benefit of smoky char.

Ideal for summer, this is the kind of dish you’ll fill with your farmers market haul. I’m talking zucchini, mushrooms, peppers, and more.

Add a healthy portion of pesto for tons of flavor and a bright, herbaceous taste, and you’re all set.

11. Veggie Quesadilla with Asparagus

These cheesy quesadillas have a wonderful combination of flavors and ingredients. 

Caramelized shallots and tender asparagus are one delicious duo. Add garlic for even more flavor, and you’ll never make a boring quesadilla again. 

Plus, this particular quesadilla is loaded with two types of yummy cheeses.

Oh, and if you’re hesitant to put asparagus in a quesadilla, don’t be! In fact, you’ll regret not doing it sooner. 

12. Sweet Potato Black Bean Quesadillas

Plain old cheese quesadillas aren’t very filling.

But these sweet potato and black bean quesadillas are sure to leave you satisfied. 

The filling is slightly sweet, a little bit smokey, and altogether tasty. Throw in some flavor-boosting garlic and peppers, plus a few chilies if you want heat.

13. Roasted Vegetable Goat Cheese Quesadillas

Quesadillas are pretty simple: fill two tortillas with a handful of ingredients, and they’ll turn into something spectacular. 

But instead of just peppers, onions, zucchini, and cheese, this recipe calls for goat cheese.

That creamy, tangy, and somewhat nutty addition makes all the difference. So much so, it’ll become your new go-to.

The flavors work extremely well together, and it’s ready in a flash.

14. Chickpea and Cheddar Quesadillas

This quesadilla recipe is definitely unique. But it’s the perfect way to enjoy a filling and flavorful lunch, sans the meat. 

You’ll coat chickpeas in cumin, giving them a wonderfully warm flavor and aroma.

Mix in some scallions and cheddar cheese, then crank up the heat. These protein-rich quesadillas are too good to miss!

15. Loaded Veggie Quesadillas

As the name suggests, these quesadillas sure are loaded

With sweet potatoes, bell peppers, black beans, avocado, cream cheese, and cheddar, there’s a lot going on.

The seasoning on these is pure heaven, too. Serve them hot and melty. Yum!

16. Spinach Tomato Quesadilla

Spinach and tomato are always a fun combo. They’re tasty, colorful, and the health benefits are plentiful. 

But superfood spinach and vitamin-packed tomatoes with garlicky pesto and cheese? Now that’s a combo I’d choose again and again.

Use wholegrain tortillas for even more nutrients without sacrificing flavor. 

17. Simple Four-Cheese Quesadillas

If you prefer to keep it simple (or if your fridge is empty), try these OG quesadillas. 

You don’t even need to think about what four kinds of cheese to use. Just grab a bag of Mexican shredded cheese and throw it in the tortillas.

You’ll love how quick and easy this meal is. And it makes a fabulous base for all kinds of extras!
