Grilled Peach and Cherry Tomato Quesadillas

Author - Serena Wolf
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Yields: 4 quesadillas


  • 1 ripe yellow peach
  • ½ red onion sliced into 1/3-inch rounds
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4 8- inch whole grain tortillas
  • 2 cups grated pepper jack cheese
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes quartered
  • ¼ cup loosely packed cilantro leaves finely chopped
  • Guacamole for serving optional


  • Pre-heat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat.
  • Slice your peach in half from pole to pole and remove the pit. Slice each half lengthwise into ½-inch pieces. Thread the peach slices onto metal or bamboo skewers.
  • Brush the peach skewers and onion rounds lightly with olive oil, and place them on the hot grill. Cook the peaches for about 2 minutes per side until grill marks appear and the fruit has softened slightly. Cook the onion for 3 minutes per side until slightly charred and softened.
  • Roughly chop the peaches and onions.
  • To assemble each quesadilla: Sprinkle ¼ cup cheese on one half of a tortilla. Top with a quarter of the peaches, onion, tomatoes and cilantro. Sprinkle with another ¼ cup cheese and fold the empty half of the tortilla over the filling to close.
  • Grill the quesadillas for 3 minutes per side until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is crisp.
  • Slice each quesadilla into 3 triangles and serve immediately. Get some guacamole involved if you’re feeling festive.
