The Symphony of Spices
Heat olive oil in a pan. Add chopped onion, red bell pepper, and minced garlic. Sauté until softened. Add ground beef to the pan. Cook until browned and crumbled.
Sprinkle paprika, both regular and smoky along with dried oregano, cumin, black pepper, and salt. Then stir in tomato paste for rich flavor.

Serve and Savor
Place a tortilla on the pan. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on half the tortilla. Top with a generous spoonful of the beef mixture. Fold tortilla over to create a half-moon shape. Cook quesadilla until cheese melts and tortilla turns golden. Flip and cook the other side to perfection.
Repeat with remaining tortillas and beef mixture. Slice quesadillas into wedges. Serve with your favorite dipping sauces and enjoy!
Mark as complete
Allow the beef to fully brown, enhancing its taste profile and creating a rich base for your quesadillas.
To flip your tortilla easily, place a plate of the same size on top of the quesadilla in the pan. Hold the plate and pan firmly together and flip both, so the quesadilla lands on the plate. Then slide it back into the pan, cooked side up.
Swap ground beef with ground turkey, chicken, or plant-based alternatives like crumbled tofu for a different flavor dimension.
While cheddar is classic, explore mozzarella, Monterey Jack, or even feta for diverse cheese experiences.
Refrigerate any leftover quesadillas in an airtight container for up to 2 days. To reheat, place them in a skillet over low heat until the cheese melts and the tortilla regains its crispiness.
