Beef Quesadillas Tips
Can you make beef quesadillas in a skillet?
Quesadillas will turn out nicely golden brown whether you use a cast iron
or nonstick skillet—the choice is yours! Just be sure you use a skillet that can completely fit the circumference of the tortilla.
What other kinds of cheese can you use to make beef quesadillas?
In addition to the Mexican cheese blend, you can also use Oaxaca, Chihuahua, Monterey Jack, or mozzarella cheese—or a combination of any of these. All of these cheeses are softer in texture and melt smoothly, which is exactly what you want for a beef quesadilla.
What can you serve with beef quesadillas?
Serve your quesadillas with shredded lettuce, salsa, guacamole, chopped tomatoes, and sour cream for topping and dipping. Or pair with a side of Spanish rice
or this Mexican street corn bake
