Mexi Cheeseburger Quesadillas

All of your favorite hamburger toppings nestled with cheese inside a tortilla.


cup ketchup
cup mayonnaise
teaspoons sweet relish
pound ground beef
teaspoons worcestershire sauce
medium onion, sliced thinly
large tortillas
cups shredded cheddar cheese
Pickle lettuce, tomato, and for topping
cup Old El Paso™ Salsa


  • 1 In a small bowl combine the ketchup, mayonnaise, and sweet relish. Spread each tortilla generously with the sauce on one side. Reserve the remainder for dipping.
  • 2 Brown the beef adding the salt, pepper, and Worcestershire while browning. Drain the fat. Add the onions when beef is almost done and brown until tender.
  • 3 Preheat skillet to medium heat and add some butter to the pan. Place one of the tortillas, sauce side up, on the pan and sprinkle the beef and onion mixture on top. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Top with the second tortilla, sauce side down.
  • 4 Cook for a couple of minutes per side or until cheese has melted. I found it helpful to use two spatulas to flip the quesadilla easily.
  • 5 Slice each quesadilla into four pieces. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles. Dip into salsa for a spicy kick.

Mexi Cheeseburger Quesadillas

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

Cheeseburger fixings piled between two layers of buttery tortillas. Yes, this just happened.

I indulge in a cheeseburger maybe five times a year. It's not that I don't like them. I just  try to keep my distance if I can help myself. Quesadillas, I eat all of the time. Put the two together and it's an absolute cheesy mouthful of flavor.

And my favorite part about these Mexi Cheeseburger Quesadillas is that you can slice them into however many small little wedges you want so that you can indulge a little, or over and over.


Ingredients for quesadilla sauce.

It all starts with the secret special sauce. It's a little ketchup, a little mayo, and a spoonful of sweet relish. Together it tastes like the essence of a burger.


Spread sauce on two tortillas.

There's nothing worse than a dry burger, and I wanted to make sure that these quesadillas didn't have that problem – so slather two tortillas generously with the special sauce.


Layer tortillas with ground beef and cheese.

Sprinkle some cooked ground beef, onions, and a whole lot of cheese on top. You could add any other toppings that float your boat here. I thought it best to keep the lettuce and tomato for topping later because no one likes wilted lettuce and warm tomatoes.


Butter quesadillas and fry on a skillet or pan until golden.

Cook them in a buttered pan for a couple of minutes per side until golden brown and all of the cheese is nice and melty.


Add fresh toppings to quesadillas.

I topped mine with some pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, and sides of salsa and special sauce for dipping.
