Quesadilla Burgers

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"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!"

  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!

Love the flavor of this recipe. The only advice I would give is to get the smallest tortillas you can find, otherwise the burger gets kind of lost in it. I think we used 8 inch ones -- if I can'...

Hubby loved this, "Better than a big bun." I did the tortillas in a cast iron pan on the stove, melted the cheese etc...., placed the hamburger patty on one quarter, loaded it up and folded ...

These burgers were bomb! I loved the southwest sauce, we even made extra for our onion rings and fries.

Outstanding recipe. Thank you for sharing and for the helpful reviews. I made it indoors without a grill but otherwise as is. My sirloin burgers I rubbed with olive oil and sea salt & pepper. I ...

Excellent Summer or BBQ meal!

We made these with home made tortillas and my family LOVED them. My pickiest eater even ate two! Thanks for sharing! Yum!
