Pierogi Quesadillas

When I had hungry children in the kitchen and nothing but leftovers, I invented these quesadillas. Now it's how we always use up our potatoes, meats and sometimes veggies. —Andrea Dibble, Solon, Iowa

    Such a great change to the typical quesadilla. My husband was delightfully surprised of how good these were. I will definitely continue making these.
