My quesadillas are filling enough to serve as a meal and versatile to win big points as a snack while the big game is on. Feel free to sub in your favorite flavored tortillas. Or kick up the spice factor with pepper jack cheese instead of the Mexican blend. —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, CO

"I made only the quesadillas and not the dipping sauce since we are not blue cheese fans. I didn't have celery or olives, so I used half a bell pepper that I saut?ed with the onion and some black beans instead. Came out terrific."

"For a fun twist with extra blue cheese flavor, try using blue cheese stuffed olives!"

"Oh so family loved this recipe; however, we are not big fans of blue cheese so I used ranch dressing to dip. But truthfully did not even need it. One quesadillas did not brown in the oven so they did not look as perfect as the picture, my family did not seem to care."
