To cook the meat:

To prepare one quesadilla:
Preheat a large skillet over medium heat and grease with oil.
On half of a tortilla, spread ¼ cup of cheese ¼ cup of the taco meat.
Then add another layer of cheese on top of the meat fold the tortilla over.
Repeat with all other tortillas.
Heat a large pan on medium-high heat, lightly spray with oil.
Cook the quesadillas for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool, then cut into triangles and serve.
We know how exciting these Quesadillas are, but don't go overboard with stuffing your fillings. Stuff all the tortillas in the right proportions to avoid falling out and creating a mess while cooking.
Don't use too much oil or butter on the skillet because it can make your tortillas go a little too soft and soggy. You want them to be nice and crispy instead.
Trust the process, and don't get ahead of yourself by cooking the Taco Quesadilla on a high flame. Use a consistent medium flame for great results.
If you're a cook who loves doing things from scratch, you should try making the tortillas all on your own. You'll enjoy the freshness, and oh, use a mixture of corn and regular flour for best results
We're using cheddar cheese in this recipe, but you can go ahead and use a combination of your favourite cheeses. Make this recipe your very own.
You can also add some tomato paste to this stuffing, making the overall recipe much more luscious and richer.
You can use any tortillas for this recipe. You can go for corn tortillas, regular flour ones or just about any you get at your nearest supermarket. You can even make your very own fresh ones if you're feeling it.
Although we love our ground beef, you can substitute it with any choice of protein that you may have at home.
You can swap out the meat for some crunchy vegetables for a vegetarian option. We love Quesadillas made with zucchini's, onion, bell pepper, cabbage, and mushrooms.
If you're feeding a big family, you can even plop these quesadillas in the oven. This will avoid you having to stand over the griddle and flip one tortilla at a time.
