Ingredients for Sheet Pan Quesadillas
- ground beef
- taco seasoning
- onions and bell peppers
- Mexican blend shredded cheese
How to make Baked Quesadillas
Turn on the oven and preheat to 425 degrees.
Saute up the onions and peppers in olive oil and set aside. Put in the meat, cook until browned, and then drain off the grease.
Add the meat back into the pan and add the taco seasoning.
Put the tortillas on a baking sheet. Make sure that they're overlapping.
Layer the tortillas with veggies, cheese, and meat.
Take and fold the tortillas and put one in the center to close them altogether.
Put another baking pan on top as this helps to hold in the help and crisp up the top.
Put in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes of time.
Fun Topping Ideas for Quesadillas
Even though the quesadilla is wrapped up totally in a tortilla, there is still plenty of space to pile toppings on top! Some great topping ideas are:
- shredded lettuce
- more cheese
- sour cream
- green onion
- fresh jalapenos
- fresh diced tomatoes
The great thing about adding toppings is that each person can easily add their own. This gives them the freedom to make their own portion of this recipe taste exactly as they want it to!
How To Store Leftover Quesadillas
Being able to create a meal that has leftovers is the best! This means that you'll get to enjoy them over and over again. To ensure that the quesadillas stay as fresh as possible, you need to be sure to store them correctly from the start.
Putting them in an airtight container with a lid is key to making them last.
How to Reheat Quesadillas
If you're hoping to get the flour tortillas crisp and crispy again, you're going to need to reheat any leftovers low and slow in the oven. This still may not make them crispy, so just be aware.
If you're not worried about the crispiness and just wanted it warmed up, the microwave will do just fine!
Can you use corn tortillas instead of flour?
For this recipe, flour tortillas work the best. This is because they're softer and easier to shape.
Corn tortillas might work just fine, but typically, when they're folded, they break, which wouldn't work out for this recipe. Corn tortillas also don't crisp up as easily as flour tortillas.
Variations for this sheet pan recipe
To cut down on some of the grease and calories, you can use ground turkey or chicken instead. Just make sure that you cook it up in the same way you would the beef, and add in the taco seasoning. You probably won't even notice a flavor difference at all for the most part!
For a sheet pan chicken quesadilla you can use cooked and shredded chicken breast or rotisserie chicken. To get the flavoring, you can warm the chicken in a frying pan with the taco seasoning and a bit of water until it's fully seasoned.
