Brooke’s Beef Quesadilla

I LOVE Mexican food. It’s an obsession….I mean why wouldn’t you? Meat, cheese, greens, tequila, sangria, margarita, salsa, corn chips….You get the picture.

A couple of weeks ago I spotted a recipe for quesadillas that looked easy! I’m a big fan of easy food….It’s not masterchef in my kitchen. I decided to make mince beef quesadillas as I a) didn’t have any chicken at home and b) didn’t wanna go to the supermarket to get some and c) I love beef! So here’s my creation and recipe….I’ll warn you this isn’t clean eating. There’s cheese and wheat and sour cream and salsa in this!

500g ground beef mince

½ red capsicum diced

1 red onion diced

Taco seasoning

¼ cup of water


Taco Seasoning

1 tbsp chili powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt


  • Cook onion until softened
  • Add capsicum & mince
  • Cook mince beef until browned
  • Add Taco seasoning and ¼ cup of water
  • Stir until the mince is combined with seasoning and water
  • Remove from heat
  • Take wrap and place pan
  • Layer lettuce, mince, cheese onto one half of the wrap (like a half moon)
  • Fold top of wrap so it looks like a half moon
  • Flip the moon over and cook the other side
  • Serve immediately

You might wanna add some sour cream or natural yoghurt to your table for this one. All that chilli powder packs a mighty punch. I also recommend maybe adding a lovely salad with cucumber, capsicum, tomato to the plate to make it even better!

PS. Don’t forget to add a margarita!! This is not clean eating!
