This is another recipe from Real Simple. I chose these Beef Quesadillas mainly for the kids, I figured it was a "different kind of hamburger" and I knew they would like that. I served it with Spanish rice , refried beans and an avocado and tomato salad. Enjoy!!
Here what you need:
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 a red onion, chopped
1 pound of ground beef
pinch of cayenne pepper
Kosher salt and black pepper
4-8 inch flour tortillas - we prefer corn tortillas so we used them instead
1 1/2 cups of grated Monterey Jack cheese
What you do:
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the beef, cayenne, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Cook, breaking up the beef with a spoon, until no longer pink, about 3 to 5 minutes more.
Heat broiler. Brush one side of each tortilla with 1 teaspoon of the remaining oil. Place 2 tortillas, oiled-side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet. Top with the beef mixture, Monterey Jack, and remaining tortillas (oiled-side up). Broil until crisp and the cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Cut into wedges before serving.
