CHEESY GROUND BEEF QUESADILLAS

Yum Posted in : Beef, Dinner, Lunch, Sandwich on by : Master Chef

Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 20 mins
Serves: 4 quesadillas

Ingredients
1 Tbsp. Butter
⅓ cup chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
1 lb. extra lean ground beef
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce with basil, garlic and oregano
½ tsp. red pepper flakes
8 10-inch flour tortillas
About 4 cups grated cheese (I used half sharp, half pepper jack)
Butter

Directions
In a large skillet, melt butter. Add chopped onion and cook until onion begins to turn transparent and edges become golden brown. Add ground beef and salt and cook until meat is no longer pink. Drain off any grease.
Add tomato sauce and simmer for 10 minutes.
In another large skillet melt some butter (about 1 tablespoon to start) over medium heat (about a tablespoon) and place a tortilla in skillet. Sprinkle with about ½ cup (or enough to cover tortilla) grated cheese and then some meat mixture (about ¾ cup). Top with another tortilla and spread butter all over top of tortilla. Cook until golden brown and then flip and cook other side until golden brown. Repeat with remaining tortillas, adding more butter to the pan as needed.
Remove from pan and slice into triangles.
Top with sour cream, fresh cilantro and guacamole, if desired.

NOTES
If you don’t have tomato sauce with basil, oregano and garlic and you just can’t bring yourself to run to the store, then just use a can or regular tomato sauce and add about a ½ teaspoon of basil, ½ tsp. of oregano and a clove of garlic, minced. These would also be yummy with a can of hot Mexican tomato sauce. It would definitely give these some kick so I would leave out the red pepper flakes.
