These cheesy beef quesadillas are like Mr. Rogers’ sweater – a warm, familiar hug that just brings you to your happy place. No seriously.
You see, my happy place is a dinner table where the 4 other people in this house eat everything on their plate with a smile on their face. That happens with only about 6 meals currently, but this is one of them.
Even better, they’re ready in less than 30 minutes. That’s prepped, cooked, and on the table.
I swear, the time between when the kids get home from school, and we need to eat, keeps shrinking. Just emptying three knapsacks and going through all the papers that come home every day takes me more than 30 minutes. Meals this delicious and easy are a life-saver.

I also love how easy it is to mix it up. They don’t have to be cheesy beef quesadillas. They could be cheesy chicken quesadillas, or pork quesadillas. You also don’t have to use ground meat. Instead, you can dice up some chicken or pork into little cubes, or even thinly slice strips of steak. They’re all equally delicious!
Want to make it spicy? Add some diced jalapeños and a 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the mix. I actually always keep a jar of pickled jalapeños in the fridge for exactly this reason (I can’t always find decent fresh ones in the grocery stores close to us).…
