This Quesadilla Burger combines a taco spiced hamburger patty with melted cheese in between two grilled, flour tortillas.
Do you like burgers? Do you like quesadillas? Then you’ll love this Quesadilla Burger! I think quesadilla burgers used to be on the menu at Applebee’s. I vaguely remember them from when I was a waitress there (a very long time ago). For mine I seasoned my ground beef with taco seasoning and added a little mayonnaise for an extra juicy burger. Quesadilla burgers are big on flavor. And they are ready very quickly, making them a great option for family dinner on a busy night.
How to Make a Quesadilla Burger
Season the ground beef and shape into burgers. Cook the burgers in a non-stick skillet until they reach 160 degrees F. Layer the burgers with shredded cheese in between two small tortillas. Grill both sides of the tortillas until the cheese is melted.
