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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I topped mine with some pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, and sides of salsa and special sauce for dipping.
It tastes just like a cheeseburger...but WAY better for some reason. Sooo good.
