Beef Quesadillas


1 lbs ground beef
1 teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoons Chili powder
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 teaspoon Garlic powder or 2 cloves
1 diced Bell pepper
1 diced medium Onion (optional)
2-3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded (or whatever type you like)
sour cream
1 package of soft flour tortillas


In a skillet, brown the ground beef and drain the grease. Add the salt, cumin and garlic and mix well. Add the bell pepper and onion, cook over low heat until they are crispy. Don't over cook them until they are soft. Remove from heat and add about three to four heaping tablespoons of salsa and mix well. Set mix to the side.

In a skillet, add enough oil to cover the bottom and place over medium heat. Place one tortilla into the oil. Add a nice handful of cheese on top of the tortilla. Add about two to three tablespoons of the beef mixture and top with another handful of cheese. Place other tortilla on top and cook for about three minutes. Flip the quesadilla over and cook for about another three minutes. Remove and cut into wedges. Best served with salsa, sour cream and
guacamole on the side.
