Out of this world Quesadillas

Who loves quesadillas? I know I do! 😀 Ha, last night was my first time to make them, and I think I did an excellent job for my first time lol.

These are easy, no-fuss quesadillas that are slightly crispy, completely cheesy and amazingly delicious! These Cheesy Ground Beef Quesadillas would make the perfect meal for busy weeknights!

Cheesy ground beef quesadillas

INGREDIENTS

1 Tbsp. Butter
⅓ cup chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
1 lb. extra lean ground beef
One can (8 oz) tomato sauce with basil, garlic, and oregano
1/8-1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes, if desired
Eight 10-inch flour tortillas
4 C shredded cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

1. In a big skillet, melt the butter. Combine diced onion and cook until the onion starts to turn transparent and edges become golden brown. Combine the ground beef and a pinch of salt and cook until meat is no longer pink. Drain any grease. Combine the tomato sauce and the red pepper flakes and simmer for ten minutes. In another large skillet melt some butter (approximately one tablespoon to start) over medium heat and place a tortilla in the skillet.

2. Sprinkle approximately ½ cup of the shredded cheese and then top it with some of the meat (approximately ¾ cup). Top with another tortilla and coat butter all over the top of the tortilla. Cook until golden brown and then turn over and cook on the other side for about three-four minutes or until golden brown. Return with remaining tortillas, adding more butter to the pan as required. Remove from pan and slice into triangles. Garnish with sour cream, fresh cilantro, and guacamole, if desired. Serve with refried beans as a side dish.

NOTES

If you don’t own tomato sauce with basil, oregano, and garlic and you just don’t feel like making a dash to the store, then just use a can or regular tomato sauce and combine approximately a ½ tsp. of basil, ½ tsp. of oregano and a clove of garlic, minced.

Parmesan cheese tastes GOOD on anything

I’m certain most of you know my reasoning of why I chose to cook this dish. If you guessed, it’s because of parmesan cheese; then you got it right 🙂 I know I probably said this once before, but whenever parmesan cheese is a listed ingredient in a particular recipe, I get excited lol and make the immediate decision in cooking.

This Garlic Parmesan Green Beans recipe makes a healthy and a tasty side dish!
