This is one of my easy (and so good!) go-to recipes. I try to keep the ingredients on hand so I can make them if I have one of those crazy days when my original dinner plan (or lack of plan) falls through. My husband likes to eat these with sour cream.
Beef & Green Chili Quesadillas
1 lb Ground Beef
1 Medium Onion, Chopped (optional)
1/2 tsp. Salt
3/4 C. Prepared Chunky Salsa
1 Can (4 oz.) Chopped Green Chilies, Drained
2 C. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
6 – 8 Medium Flour Tortillas (or less if you want them really full)
Cooking Spray or Butter
- In a large skillet brown beef and onion. Pour of drippings and season with salt.
- Add salsa, chilies and cheese. Stir and cook until cheese is melted
- Spoon mixture ( about a 1/4 or more) onto 1/2 of each tortilla and fold to close.
- Lightly spray tops of tortillas with cooking spray or a small amount of butter. Cook on medium heat on a griddle or stove top pan. Cook until tortilla is lightly brown on one side, flip and repeat.
