Cheeseburger Quesadillas!

As you all know, I love Mexican food!  My family likes it also, but because they are picky eaters in some ways, they like it to be sort of Americanized or scaled down in the spiciness and ingredients.

 I have even gotten Mr. Sweet Tea, who is my biggest challenge, when it comes to new things, to eat several recipes with a Mexican flair to them!   This makes me happy, because then I don't end up cooking two different meals as much!!!   

These "Cheeseburger Quesadillas" was an idea I had that I thought would please everyone and it did!!!    These are so easy and they are perfect for feeding picky husbands, teenagers, or kids of any age really!!!    I mean who doesn't love a cheeseburger??? 

 These are great served with soup or serve them with fries like you would a cheeseburger!  They are great for lunch or supper!   They are quick, easy and yummy!!! 

Here is what you will need:

2 lbs. ground beef or chuck, browned
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tsp. yellow mustard
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
seasoned salt to taste
black pepper to taste
8  (8 inch) flour tortillas
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese or a cheddar jack blend
4 Tbs. butter, divided

In large skillet, brown the ground beef until completely browned.  Drain excess grease.  Add the ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt and black pepper!   Stir to combine and bring to a boil for just a few minutes.  Simmer until the mixture thickens.  Be sure to stir so it doesn''t stick. 

Melt one tablespoon of butter in a large flat skillet or on a griddle.  Place one flour tortilla on the pan.  Your heat should be on about medium. 

Sprinkle with 1/4 of the ground beef mixture and then top with 1 cup of cheese.
Lay another flour tortilla on top and press down with a spatula to help melt the cheese so they stick together and make turning easier.

When it's brown on one side, carefully flip it over with a wide spatula and brown on the other side.

When it's nice and brown, remove to a plate or cutting board and cut in fourths.  This is really easy if you use a pizza cutter!   Repeat with the rest of the ingredients until you have 16 wedges!!! If you are cooking for  two or three people, you could cut this recipe in half!

Top with dill pickles if you are a pickle lover!!!  These are really yummy with chili!!!
