3 Quesadilla Twists:

  • Make it Italian with mozzarella, cooked sausage and marinara. Top with spinach, roasted red peppers and grated Parmesan.
  • Keep it vegetarian: Use black beans or veggie crumbles instead of turkey.
  • Go spicy with pepper Jack, shredded chicken and hot sauce. Top with lettuce, pickled onion and diced pickled jalapeño.
