It’s hard to find anyone that doesn’t love beef quesadillas, except for vegetarians. If this is you, don’t worry we will also include some great vegan recipes on our blog. We decided to share two recipes with you, one geared for kids and the other a little more adventurous so hopefully everyone will be happy with dinner tonight.
Kids beef quesadilla
1 tsp. Ground cumin
1 tsp. Chili powder
¼ tsp kosher salt
⅓ chili con queso sauce (prepared)
1 tbsp. Oil olive
4 flour tortillas
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Brown the ground beef in a skillet adding in the spices and queso sauce. Heat the olive oil in a separate skillet. Take a flour tortilla, add ground beef, sprinkle liberally with shredded cheese and cook until a light golden brown. Usually one minute on each side. When finished place on a plate, and you have a delicious meal your kids will love.
Beef Quesadillas with Queso Blanco Sauce
If you want to make your standard beef quesadillas stand out from the rest, we recommend adding a white cheese sauce. The flavor this gives the meat is hard to beat, and it is also extremely easy to make. The only difference between these quesadillas and the ones you made for your kids is the queso sauce. In one pan you will brown the lean ground beef, adding in the same spices that are listed in the previous recipe. In a separate pan combine 1 cup of Monterey jack cheese, 2 oz. green chilis, heavy cream, 1 tsp. Cumin, 1 tsp. Salt, ½ tsp. Pepper and 3 cloves of garlic. When the cheese is melted and the sauce is rich and creamy pour over top the ground beef, which should have already been place in the tortillas and nicely browned. Garnish with cilantro and sour cream.
Like we promised these recipes are extremely easy to make, and are great when you are in a hurry. Each recipe only takes 25 minutes or so to make, and you will also appreciate the fact that you only need to dirty a few pans. There is nothing worse than having to clean up a huge mess after spending time cooking dinner. We hope that you enjoy, and keep checking back for more delicious recipes.
