Today I have a quick and easy sloppy joe quesadilla recipe, which is a great way to use some leftover sloppy joes, or perfect excuse to make some! I am just a little bit obsessed with quesadillas, I mean it’s warm, crispy toasted tortillas filled with plenty of melted cheese along with any other tasty ingredients that you may desire, like sloppy joes! These quesadillas are as easy to make as slapping a tortilla into a pan, topping with cheese, the sloppy joes and your favourite fillings, I like pickles and pickled peppers, followed by more cheese and another tortilla and toasting it! I like to serve these sloppy joe quesadillas with sriracha mayo for dipping and a side of corn chips are perfect!

My partner and I got a panini grill as a housewarming gift a couple of years ago. We would make so many paninis but I just recently tried making quesadilla with it. Now I’m addicted! I will definitely try this recipe, it looks delicious.
Do you use sweet pickles or dill pickles?
I prefer dill pickles here, but sweet could work!

How do you turn this over without all the fillings falling out?
I like to place a large plate on top of the quesadilla in the pan, flip the entire pan (while holding the plate), so that the quesadilla is now on the plate with the cooked side up, and then slide the quesadilla back into the pan to cook the other side. Enjoy!
