Italy meets south of the border in this delicious mashup dish. Keep your quesadillas interesting by incorporating classic Italian flavors to create a Mexican-style pizza melt. Here are all the ingredients you’ll need to make this twist on an old favorite:

  • 1 package of Premio Sweet Italian Sausage, cooked and cut into rounds
  • 8 10-inch or 12-inch flour tortillas
  • 4 jarred whole roasted red peppers, drained and cut into strips
  • 1 1/3 cups of marinara sauce
  • 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup of shredded Asiago cheese
  • 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning

Spread the sausage rounds and strips of roasted red peppers evenly over four of the tortillas. Next, spoon marinara sauce and sprinkle both cheeses and the Italian seasoning evenly over each tortilla. Place one of the remaining tortillas over each of the tortillas with toppings. Finally, heat a skillet over medium-high heat and grill each of the quesadillas until one side is lightly golden, then flip to cook the other side.

2. Kielbasa Tacos

Why make boring ground beef tacos when you could make exciting kielbasa tacos? Take the flavor of your tacos up a notch with these tasty kielbasa tacos. These are all the ingredients you’ll need:

To make the tacos, grill all the veggies until tender before grilling the kielbasa. Once both your vegetables and kielbasa are done cooking, you can start assembling the tacos. Warm your tortillas briefly over the grill before filling each with a serving of kielbasa and vegetable mixture. Top with a sprinkle of cilantro and a drizzle of hot sauce.

Enchiladas are a scrumptious way to enjoy cheese-and-salsa-drenched tortillas. As a bonus, this enchiladas recipe includes Premio Sweet Italian Sausage to provide extra flavor and a bit of protein. Here is the full list of ingredients you’ll need for these tasty enchiladas:

Pour the remaining salsa over the tortillas and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes. Afterward, sprinkle with the remaining cheese and bake until it melts.

4. Sausage and Pepperoni Pizzadillas

Cook the quesadillas in a skillet over medium heat until the cheese melts and each side is golden brown.
