Can’t decide if you want cheeseburgers or quesadillas for dinner? Well, why not both? That’s right. Cheeseburger quesadillas are the delicious food mashup that will make everyone happy.
And best of all, they’re super easy to make! You can find the full recipe at Cooking Panda. Basically, all you have to do is brown some ground beef, add a few condiments and slap the mixture onto a tortilla along with the cheese of your choice and any other toppings you might desire. (Some tasty possibilities include onions, cilantro, pico, crumbled bacon and avocado.)
Put it all together, toast it in a frying pan and you’re set! Your cheeseburger quesadillas will taste restaurant-quality, especially when they are served with extra condiments, like sour cream and hot sauce.

If you’d like, you can also serve it with a side of Worcestershire sauce instead of adding it to the ground beef during cooking. This will allow people to drizzle it over their quesadilla if they so desire or to simply use it as a dipping sauce.
Since not everyone likes Worcestershire sauce (especially your little ones), this is also a good way to keep the recipe family-friendly.
Check out another recipe for cheeseburger-like quesadillas — with sauce on the side — at Culinary Hill.
Other recipes, such as this one from Joyful Homemaking, suggest using McCormick Hamburger Seasoning or Montreal Steak Seasoning on your ground beef. This will really amp up the hamburger taste without making it too spicy.
Margo at Joyful Homemaking prepares her quesadilla by folding one tortilla in half, rather than using two tortillas. Either method will work, and you can choose whichever type of tortilla you prefer, though a large, flour tortilla would work best. However, you can also opt to use options like low-carb wraps, spinach wraps or gluten-free wraps.
