Sheet Pan Quesadillas

Recipe by Maria Vergara




  • 8 large flour tortillas

  • 2 bell peppers, chopped

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

  • 1 tsp. chili powder

  • 1 tsp. cumin

  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 1/2 lb. ground beef

  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika

  • Kosher salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 c. shredded cheddar

  • Sour cream, for garnish

  • Pico de gallo, for garnish

  • 1 c. shredded monterey


  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add bell peppers and onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside. Add ground beef to skillet and cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until beef is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain fat, then stir in cumin, chili powder, paprika and season with salt and pepper.
  • On a half sheet, place 6 tortillas around the edges of the pan so that about half of each tortilla hangs over side. Place another tortilla in the center to cover pan completely, then top with ground beef, pepper and onion mixture, cheeses, and green onions.
  • Place another tortilla in the center (on top of all fillings), then fold each tortilla towards center. Place a second baking sheet on top of tortillas (to help quesadilla hold in shape) and bake until tortillas are beginning to turn crispy, about 20 minutes. Remove baking sheet from on top and continue baking until tortillas are golden and crispy, about 15 minutes more.
  • Slice into rectangles and serve warm with sour cream and pico de gallo.
