Another easy way to make quesadillas is to use a skillet. Set the temperature on high, add one tablespoon of butter to cover bottom of pan. Place a large flour tortilla in pan. Add grated pepperjack cheese, heated Perdue Shortcuts (or homemade - I have a special recipe), salt and pepper to half of tortilla. You could also add a little spinach or try out other tasty fillings. Heat on high for a minute or two, use spatula and careful turn over and cook for another one to two minutes until cheese is melted. Cut in four and serve with a salad and vegetable. Delicious!!!

I thought that this was a great recipe, quick and easy. All my friends liked it too. The only change i made is that i don't like chilies or peppers so i decided to make up some of the Carolina Long Grain and Wild rice and i put a bit of that in and some sour cream and i thought that it tasted really good.

Great fast idea. We have also added black olives, tomatoes, or just about anything you like. We also put them on the grill. Brush on the outside of the quesadilla a little olive oil (both sides) place on grill until cheese melts and a nice crust has formed on the outside. Easy flipping idea, use a pizza flipper or a large spatula. Easy way to get them on the grill without everything falling out is to put them on a cookie sheet and slid them onto the grill

Quick and easy, this turned out great :) I made them without the chilies (because I don't like ANYTHING spicy) and they were still great. I will definitely make them again
