Taco Quesadillas are quick, easy, delicious, and the whole family loves them…
which means you don’t have to hear any complaints at dinner 😉
This is one of those dream dinners that can be a busy mom’s best friend.
I made mine with ground turkey instead of ground beef which cuts a few calories.
Ground venison would also be a nice choice if you have some.
How to Make Taco Quesadillas
I cooked the ground turkey in a skillet and added a packet of taco seasoning.
If you have a homemade taco seasoning that would be even better.
Sometimes I just get lazy and take the help from the store bought ingredients.
In another skillet over medium low heat just drizzle some olive oil and lay a burrito size tortilla flat in the skillet.
Add some shredded cheese to one side, some of the taco meat, and then more cheese.
Gotta love lots of melty cheese in your taco quesadillas!
Just flip the empty side of the tortilla over the filled side and cook for a minute or two.
Then carefully flip it over with a spatula and let it cook another minute or two.
You could serve these Taco Quesadillas just like this, or add whatever toppings you like.
We added lettuce and sour cream.
My husband broke out the pickled jalapenos and hot sauce to add some heat to his.
Salsa would be a nice topping as well.
Instead of Taco Tuesday we can call it Quesadilla Tuesday, right?!
