Cheeseburger Quesadilla

Cheeseburger Quesadilla
Okay, so it's a crappy picture. I was hungry and wanted to eat this right away before it got cold, so I took a quick snap and then started shoveling it into my mouth. Oh and it was wonderful. Eating this reminded me of why sometimes Hubby doesn't like going out for food. It's just sometimes yummier at home and healthier since I know exactly what went in there. There's almost nothing more satisfying than when you cook a meal and it tastes better than the stuff you can get outside......and people tell you so. :D

Cheeseburger Quesadilla
(serves 2)

  • 1/3 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 2 (whole wheat) flour tortillas
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 small onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

  1. In a small skillet, brown ground beef on medium high heat. Season with salt, pepper, ground cumin and chili powder. Drain off excess fat.
  2. Stir in onions and cook until translucent. Set aside.
  3. In a 10" pan or grill, lay a tortilla down and warm up on medium heat. Spread 1/4 cup of cheese on one half. When almost all melted, top with half of ground beef mixture and then top with another 1/4 cup of cheese on top. Fold the tortilla in half. Using a large spatula, flip the quesadilla over to get the remaining cheese all melty.
  4. Cut into wedges and serve with sour cream, guacamole & salsa.
