The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 43

February 14, 2012 at 1:34 am (Food) (, , , , )

Hello again friends, and welcome back!  So glad you decided to join me again…

Monday’s around here are a little hectic, scouts, early release from school, the one night a week things aren’t very laid back, so it’s quick and easy dinner night.  Tonight, it was…

Beef Quesadillas

1 pound ground chuck, browned and drained

2/3 cup cold water

1/4 cup taco seasoning (I use Tone’s, got a HUGE bottle at Sam’s)

Shredded cheese of your choice

Flour tortillas, about 6

Cooking spray (I used olive oil)

Mix browned ground chuck with cold water and taco seasoning, cook over medium low heat 10-15 minutes or until thickened.

Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray, place in 1 tortilla, sprinkle with about 1/4 cup shredded cheese, 1/3 of the prepared beef mixture, top with another 1/4 cup shredded cheese and another tortilla, spray with cooking spray.  Cook 2-3 minutes or until tortilla is lightly browned and cheese is starting to melt.  CAREFULLY flip over and brown other side, cooking another 2-3 minutes.  Remove to plate, cut into 6 slices with pizza cutter and serve!  You can also serve sour cream or guacamole on the side.  Or you can substitute chicken for the beef.  These are a great quick and easy meal!

Until tomorrow, eat well, love well, live well!
