Beef & Cheese Quesadillas

The hubby will be gone this weekend as he preaches a revival for a church a couple hours from where we live.

Its going to be a lonely weekend for baby girl and I…

But, I’m sure we will find some fun things to do to fill the time. Like shopping, of course!

Any time my husband has to go out of town, I hardly ever cook a meal. Its just not worth the effort when Emma and I can eat cereal and everyone is happy (just a joke, I feed my kid more than cereal; although it is her fave!).

However, on the off chance I do decide to cook something, its usually quick and easy (like most of our meals!).

Beef & Cheese Quesadillas are no exception to this! I ALWAYS have the ingredients for this recipe on hand and its one of our staple meals. It also makes plenty of leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day, so that’s always a plus for me.

I’m sure a lot of you already have your own recipe for these types of quesadillas. And of course Pinterest is probably loaded with similar recipes, but this is how I make them  🙂

Have a great Friday and weekend guys!

 

Beef & Cheese Quesadillas

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • Packet of taco seasoning (or 2-3 tbsp of a homemade version)
  • 8-9 taco-sized flour tortillas
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese (or whatever you prefer)
  • Olive oil
  • Sour cream, taco sauce, shredded lettuce (optional toppings)

Directions

  1. Cook ground beef on medium to medium-high heat in a large skillet until no longer pink. Drain excess fat and wipe the skillet clean.
  2. In a small bowl, mix ground beef and taco seasoning. Add a splash of water if it seems a bit dry.
  3. Drizzle 2 tsp. of olive oil in your skillet and heat over medium.
  4. In each tortilla, sprinkle 1 tbsp of cheese, 2 tbsp of meat, and another tbsp of cheese on half of the tortilla. Fold over and press the top gently with your hand to help keep it closed.
  5. Once your oil is ready, lay two filled tortillas in the skillet and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until the tortillas are crispy, browned and the cheese is melted.
  6. Serve with Mexican rice or refried beans.
