Grilled quesadillas taste better than pan-cooked ones, with a nice smoky flavor, according to ESNY. Here are some Chowhounds’ favorite techniques:

Fold them into regular quesadillas. HillJ lines the grill grate with foil to avoid fallout of filling when folding warm tortillas.

Or make quesadillas sincronazas—two quesadillas sandwiched with cheese and other fillings of your choice. Heat two tortillas for a minute on one side. Then arrange them into a little sandwich with your filling. Be sure to put the prewarmed sides of the tortillas on the inner, filled side. Char the outside to your liking. Veggo bastes two tortillas with melted butter and grills butter side down before adding the filling and flipping. “Smoked butter’s great,” agrees hannaone.
