Grilled Peach, Pesto, and Mozzarella Quesadillas-you only need 4 ingredients to make these delicious summer quesadillas!
I bought a huge basket of peaches at the farmers market to make my Peach Almond Crisp. I had a few peaches leftover, so I put them to good use and made Grilled Peach, Pesto, and Mozzarella Quesadillas for lunch. Best decision ever! These fresh and simple quesadillas are a new favorite at our house, even the boys loved them! And the best part? You only need four ingredients to make them! Score!
These quesadillas couldn’t be easier. All you need are: Old El Paso Flour Tortillas, peaches, pesto, and fresh mozzarella. That’s it!
I cut the peaches and mozzarella into thin slices and got out a jar of my favorite Spinach Basil Pesto. If you don’t want to make your own pesto, you can use store bought pesto.
I spread the tortillas with pesto, added the peaches and mozzarella, and put the quesadillas on the grill! A few minutes later the quesadillas were ready to eat! I cut them into triangles and we all devoured them! The flavor combination was soooo good!
Make these simple Grilled Peach, Pesto, and Mozzarella Quesadillas this summer! They are great for lunch, dinner, or served as an appetizer or snack! Enjoy!
Grilled Peach, Pesto, and Mozzarella Quesadillas
- 4 Flour Tortillas
- 4 tablespoons basil pesto
- 2 medium peaches pit removed and thinly sliced
- 4 oz fresh mozzarella cheese thinly sliced
- 1. Preheat the grill to medium heat. Lightly spray one side of each tortilla with cooking spray. On unsprayed side of each of the tortillas, evenly spread the pesto. Add the peaches and mozzarella cheese. Top each with remaining tortilla, sprayed side up, and press together.
- 2. Place quesadillas on directly on the hot grill. Cook for 6-8 minutes, carefully flipping once, until cheese is melted. Remove from grill and cut the quesadillas into quarters. Serve immediately.
- Note-you can make these quesadillas in a skillet or on a griddle pan if you don't have a grill.

Love these flavors!! Delicious quesadilla!!
This combo sounds great!!
I never would have thought of putting peaches in quesadillas, but I LOVE this idea!!! And peaches and pesto are a match made in heaven.
I love that you added peaches and pesto dress up an old favorite- looks great Maria!
I love and sweet and savory quesadillas like this!
What a great combination! Grilled peaches are one of the best things ever!
Oooo I totally have peaches, pesto AND I even have a stash of plantain tortillas in the freezer I made last month. I can’t wait to try this. What a fun combo of flavors!
Such a perfect summer lunch! The flavor combos are nothing short of perfection 🙂
Love the sweet peaches in these quesadillas!
They look awesome. Hope you’re having a great summer!
Yay for pesto! I love how you paired the peaches and mozzarella with the flavorful pesto – what a winning combination!
Yum! Another great way to eat peaches!
Thanks for this recipe! I immediately had to try it out. Whilst it was delicious, I found them to be missing something and have come to the conclusion that pepper might be the answer. Obviously the spiciness of those peppers is a matter of taste, but even a nice black pepper or a paprika would do nicely. Roasted red peppers would be another great option. I have yet to try this out, but really look forward to doing so!
