For today’s quesadilla recipe, we’re talking about how to prepare them using a sheet pan. This simple recipe will take you mere seconds and the quesadillas will be ready to serve in just minutes. Let’s begin.
- A tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
- Pair of thinly sliced green onions
- Pair of chopped bell peppers
- Cup of shredded Monterey cheese
- A chopped onion
- Cup of shredded cheddar cheese
- Pound and a half of ground beef
- Eight large flour tortillas
- Teaspoon of chili powder
- Black pepper (freshly ground)
- Teaspoon of cumin
- Kosher salt
- Half a teaspoon of smoked paprika
- Pico de gallo and sour cream for garnish
Begin by preheating your oven to 425°. Pour the olive oil into a large skillet, place it over medium heat and then add the onion and bell peppers until it becomes soft, the process should take about five minutes. Remove these ingredients from the skillet and put them aside for now. Follow by adding the ground beef to the skillet and cook, making sure to break up the meat using a wooden spoon. Continue to cook until all of the pink is gone which again, should take five minutes. After you drain the fat, stir in the paprika, cumin, and chili powder and use the pepper and salt for seasoning.
Place six of the tortillas on a half sheet close to the edges of the pan so that roughly half of the tortilla is hanging over the side. Grab another tortilla and place it in the center so that the pan is completely covered and then top it with the mixture you made and set aside earlier as well as the green onions and the cheeses.
Use another tortilla and place it in the center so that all of the fillings are covered then fold each of the tortillas near the center. Use a second baking sheet and place it on top of the tortillas and then bake until the tortilla become crispy, it should take about twenty minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the top and resume baking for about fifteen additional minutes until the tortillas become golden.
Slice the tortillas/quesadillas into rectangles and serve with the pico de gallo and sour cream.
