Put a little more pep in your step when you cook and eat these delicious and totally addictive ground beef quesadillas. These popular handheld treats work well to serve as lunch, dinner, or a snack any day of the week, particularly on Cinco de Mayo! Zesty ground beef joins other traditional Mexican ingredients and nestles in between two warm tortillas for a mouthful of flavor in every bite. This meal idea works well for kids, who love to help choose how much of each ingredient should go in their personal quesadilla.
Quesadillas can vary greatly, and of course each can be altered according to the eater's tastes, but this recipe combines ground beef, black beans, onion and cheese in the filling for a true Mexican flavor. If you're not into ground beef, use chicken, steak or pork. Or keep it vegetarian and add a dollop of guacamole. Kick up the quesadillas by adding a few shakes of your favorite hot sauce to the ground beef mixture.
