We loved this recipe! I made one big quesadilla on the griddle and then cut in pieces after cooking. Topped with shredded lettuce, salsa and a blop of sour cream. Thanks for posting the recipe.

This was a VERY easy weeknight meal and we enjoyed it. I used medium salsa, 2Tb of a grilled leftover red pepper, and I omitted the bed of salad. DH didn't bother cutting the quesadillas ahead of time. He just spread the filling and grilled them whole, then sliced them with a knife into the appropriate sized wedges before serving. The very tasty Simple Tomato and Avocado Salad made for a simple and complimentary side. Made for Zaar Stars Summer 2013

This was a nice way to use a veggie burger. I scaled the recipe in half, used cheddar cheese and made 2 tortillas with some leftover. Thanks! Made for Rookie tag.
