While many quesadilla recipes involve strips of chicken, ground beef or sometimes even pulled pork, this one from 'How Sweet It Is' blog swaps most of the meat out for a filling of fruit. Beyond just being fruit-stuffed, the twist on the Mexican dish is also served with a side of spicy strawberry salsa.

The star of the quesadilla recipe is undoubtedly the caramelized pineapple pieces, which are prepared with coconut oil, salt and cinnamon. As far as what goes into the making of the spicy strawberry salsa, there's tangy lime juice, diced jalapeno peppers, fresh cilantro, tomato and of course, chopped strawberries.

Heaps of fresh fruit and the classic quesadilla are both remixed in this recipe, offering a sweet, spicy and savory way to enjoy familiar components alongside rich caramel flavors.
