Quesadilla Burgers


This is a great twist on the hamburger that everyone is sure to love! It's a combination of southwest and the classic American hamburger. I have three kids who all eat very differently from one another and this was a hit for them as well as hubby! I like to serve these with either sweet potato fries or green bean fries!

Southwest Sauce:

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • ¼ cup ranch dressing

  • ¼ cup taco sauce

  • 4 (4 ounce) hamburger patties

  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce, or to taste

  • 8 flour tortillas

  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

  • 2 cups shredded Colby-Jack cheese

  • ½ head lettuce, shredded, or to taste

  • 3 tablespoons picante sauce, or to taste


  1. Mix sour cream, ranch dressing, and taco sauce together in a bowl until Southwest sauce is smooth. Cover bowl and refrigerate for flavors to blend.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  3. Cook hamburger patties in the preheated grill for 5 minutes, seasoning with Worcestershire sauce. Flip patties. Arrange tortillas on the grill and lower heat to medium-low under tortillas. Add Cheddar cheese and Colby-Jack cheese to tortillas; cook until cheeses melt, 2 to 4 minutes. Continue cooking hamburger patties until cooked through, about 5 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  4. Spread Southwest sauce onto 1/2 of the tortillas; top with lettuce and picante sauce. Place 1 hamburger patty on top of picante sauce layer and top patty with a tortilla, creating a sandwich.

Cook's Note:

The Southwest sauce makes an excellent salad dressing too!
