You really can’t go wrong with a quesadilla, am I right? Take one tortilla, top with cheese and other sundry fridge items, and apply heat. Eat with gusto approximately five minutes later.

Quesadillas are so easy to throw together that sometimes I fall into a rut of making the same basic quesadilla every time. These are a few recipes I’ve bookmarked recently that used an unusual ingredient, an interesting spice, or otherwise piqued my culinary curiosity:

Quesadillas with Chicken Sausage and Roasted Vegetables from Martha Stewart – It’s the sweet potato included in those roasted vegetables that has me intrigued with this one.

Kimchi and Avocado Quesadillas from Sunset and MyRecipes – Kimchi on a quesadilla? I’m all over it.

Unda-Style Quesadillas from 101 Cookbooks – This is Heidi Swanson’s creative way of saying, “Put an egg on it!”

Potato, Greens, and Goat Cheese Quesadilla from Bon Appétit – Potato is yet another ingredient I never thought about putting on a quesadilla, though I love potato tacos.

Grilled Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas from Pioneer Woman – Pineapple! I love it!

Tandoori Quesadillas from Indian Simmer – I really like the idea of bringing Indian flavors into a quesadilla.

Squash Blossom Quesadillas from Saveur – An excellent use for the squash blossoms I’ve been seeing at the farmers market.

Cheese and Hominy Quesadillas from Epicurious – IHominy is so fantastic. Always nice to have another way to use it.

Caramelized Onion and Steak Quesadillas from BS’ In the Kitchen – I normally opt for barely cooked onions for the sake of time, but this recipe looks worth the extra effort.

Pear, Brie, and Honey Quesadilla from Two Peas & Their Pod – The honey is a great touch.

What’s your favorite kind of quesadilla?
