To make a basic quesadilla in a quesadilla maker, sprinkle shredded cheese, such as cheddar or Mexican-style cheese, on a tortilla, and cook it according to the instructions provided in the owner's manual. Other easy recipes for quesadillas include precooked chicken, refried beans and deli meats combined with cheese.
To make a bean quesadilla, spread canned, refried beans on a tortilla, and top the beans with crispy crumbled bacon, chopped scallions and shredded Mexican-style cheese. Cook the quesadilla until the outside is lightly browned and the quesadilla is heated through. Top the quesadilla with salsa or sour cream before serving.
To make a chicken quesadilla, layer the tortilla with pre-cooked chopped or shredded chicken, chopped green onions, shredded Mexican-style cheese, cilantro and diced tomatoes. Brush the outside of the quesadilla with olive oil to prevent sticking, and cook the quesadilla until the exterior turns golden brown.
To make a quesadilla with deli meats, sprinkle 1/4 cup of Monterey Jack cheese on the tortilla, and cover the cheese with 2 slices of turkey or ham. Cook the tortilla until it is heated through. Other types of deli meat and cheese, such as ham and Swiss cheese, can be used in place of turkey and Monterey Jack.
