Quesadillas are a fan favorite around here, simply because they are super easy to create and can be customized in an array of ways. Firstly, we have the regular cheese quesadilla (which is probably what began your love of this Mexican-inspired dish), chicken, steak, or shrimp quesadilla which each have their own dimension of the flavor or delicious spices; but we aren’t here to just offer the basics, we have a recipe that will inspire you to try new flavors and you will become addicted.
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425° F / 220° C
Step 2: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell peppers, and cook until soft for about 5 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside in a small bowl
Step 3: In the same skillet add ground beef and cook, breaking up meat until you get a brown color for about 5 minutes. Make sure to drain fat.
Step 4: Stir in paprika, chili powder, cumin, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 5: Place 6 tortillas on a baking sheet, make sure to overlap the tortillas and place another one to cover the baking sheet completely.
Step 6: Top with ground beef, then add pepper and onion mixture.
Step 7: Add shredded cheese and green onions on top.
Step 8: Fold the tortillas towards the center and place another tortilla in the center on top of all fillings. If the tortillas don’t stay in place, put a second baking sheet on top of it to help the quesadilla hold its shape.
Step 9: Bake until tortillas are beginning to turn crispy, about 25-35 minutes. If you added a second baking sheet, remove it after 10 minutes and continue baking.
