2 quesadillas


  • ½ pound ground beef

  • ½ red onion, diced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided

  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1 tablespoon milk

  • 1 tablespoon butter, divided

  • 2 (12 inch) flour tortillas

  • 2 tablespoons Thousand Island dressing, divided

  • 1 romaine lettuce heart, sliced

  • 1 tomato, sliced

  • ½ red onion, sliced


  1. Combine beef, diced onion, and garlic in a large skillet; cook and stir until beef is no longer pink, 5 to 8 minutes. Season with salt.

  2. Transfer beef to a saucepan over low heat. Add 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, and milk. Cook and stir until cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Melt half the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook 1 tortilla until golden brown on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip tortilla and spread with 1 tablespoon dressing. Spoon half of the beef mixture over the tortilla; fold in half. Cook until tortilla is golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a serving plate. Repeat with second tortilla.

  4. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese over tortillas. Let cool, about 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve with lettuce, tomato, and sliced onion.
