Quesadillas are something I make often at home especially these veggie hummus quesadillas. They are quick and easy to make. I made these for lunch today, and I feel like they always leave me feeling I want more! Jason and I are addicted to this recipe even though I have experimented with other ingredients, I’m hooked on this one.
These veggie hummus quesadillas are quick, fast, easy and healthy. Packed with creamy roasted red pepper hummus and a mango salsa topped with sauteed veggies and Gouda cheese folded with a whole wheat tortilla.

Make it your own Quesadillas!
There is so much you can do on a quesadilla, but this veggie hummus quesadillas is just one way out of millions of ways.
I have also made guacamole and spread it on the tortillas before cooking.
Add what ever veggies you like such as squash, zucchini, sweet peppers, potatoes,broccoli,spinach ect… and the possibilities are endless!
Even any type of cheese will work such as munster, mozzarella, cheddar, feta, monterey jack, cream cheese, ect… or heck maybe you don’t want cheese or can’t have dairy, then leave it off.
You can even add any type of meat, falafels, beans, ect…
Maybe switch up the tortilla for a pita!
There isn’t a one size fits all quesadillas. Experiment and try new toppings. It is one meal that is hard to mess up, because it will taste good with what ever you like on it.
