Variations and Substitutions

1-Substitute chicken, ground turkey, or ground chicken for the ground beef.

2-For a vegetarian option use saluted mushrooms, onions, red bell pepper, corn, and pinto beans.

3-If you like a little spice to your quesadilla, try adding sliced jalapeños or a can of diced green chilis to your meat mixture.

4-Use whole wheat tortillas instead of flour.

5-Make your homemade taco seasoning instead of the packaged seasoning.

Tips For Making The Best Quesadillas In The Oven

  • Use a quarter sheet pan for a smaller batch of quesadillas and use 4-5 tortillas.
  • Don’t over fill the quesadilla, going overboard filling the tortillas can lead to soggy tortillas.
  • Use large burrito size flour tortillas, they are easier to work with and are the best size for sheet pan quesadillas.
  • I prefer to shred my own cheese because it melts so much better.
