Mini Baked Taco Quesadillas are a quick and easy dinner that the whole family will love!
Such a fun spin on regular taco night, and the kids can even help make them 🙂
What makes these “mini” you may ask…it’s the cute, little street taco size tortillas 🙂
How to make Mini Baked Taco Quesadillas
I made a pound of taco meat first with one of those taco seasoning packets from the store.
To make this dinner go even quicker, you could make the meat a day or two ahead of time so it’s already ready.
Then lay 12 street taco tortillas flat on two lined baking sheets.
Brush them with a mixture of olive oil and chili powder and flip them over so the oiled side is down.
My son LOVES helping with this part, he calls it “painting” the tortillas.
A sprinkle of shredded cheese goes down first.
Then add some of the cooked taco meat.
And another layer of cheesy goodness.
Next top each one with another tortilla and brush (or “paint” 😉 ) more of the olive oil chili powder mixture.
These bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
The extra hot oven makes them super crispy!
Serve these adorable Mini Baked Taco Quesadillas with whatever topping you prefer.
For our dinner I simply put some sour cream, salsa, hot sauce, and guacamole on the table and everyone topped their own 🙂
