Beefy Quesadillas are another lunch or supper option that can be made ahead and frozen.
We make these ahead of time. Freeze them with wax paper between each quesadilla, it makes it easier to take just one out at mealtime.
Then to serve, we add a bit of oil in a skillet and heat through. You can top with or dip into sour cream and salsa.
1 lb Ground Beef
Seasonings (Taco seasoning, or similar)
1 Green Pepper, diced
1 medium Onion, diced
1 Red Pepper, diced
10 medium or 6 large Tortillas
2 cups Cheese, shredded (Cheddar, Marble or Mozzarella)
Saute peppers and onion in a skillet, then add Ground beef and seasoning and brown.
In the video I used one tortilla, placed filling on half and folded over, this works best when freezing. You can use a full tortilla place filling on the whole surface then place another tortilla on top.
To fill tortillas, add a sprinkle of cheese, then beef mixture, then another sprinkle of cheese.
To freeze, layer quesadillas with wax paper between, place in a freezer bag or container.
To Prepare: remove from freezer and thaw in refrigerator, or place in microwave for 30 seconds before grilling. In a skillet, grill with 1 Tbsp olive oil, until heated through. Serve with sour cream and salsa on the side.
