Ground Beef Quesadillas

Servings: 2

Prep time: 10

Cook time: 10



Leftover ground beef from Beef Enchiladas
1/4 red onion, diced

1/2 Bell pepper, diced

1 cup cheddar or monterey jack cheese, grated

6 flour tortillas

1 tsp butter

For Serving:


Sliced Avocado, or Guacamole

Sour Cream

Diced Jalepeno




Using the leftover ground beef  (enchiladas) place a small amount of cheese on half of your flour tortilla, then add the ground beef mixture.  Sprinkle some of the red onion and bell pepper, and then more cheese on top.


Fold the tortilla in half, and place on a sheet pan with parchment paper.  I swear the easiest way to butter the tortilla just slightly is with your clean finger - but feel free to use a knife.


Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes, checking midway through so you don't over brown, the flip and bake for an additional 5 minutes.


Notes:  These used the leftover ground beef from the beef enchiladas, linked above.  If you wished to make the full pound of ground beef for the quesadillas, use the linked recipe for amounts and seasonings.  As a household of 2, we can get away with using 1/2 lb of ground beef for the enchiladas and the remaining half for the quesadillas.
