    I make these but I spread a thin layer of refried beans on the tortilla before adding the meat and cheese..I also add some chopped onion, peppers or green chilies as well. Sometimes I just use taco seasoning. serve with guacamole, salsa or sour cream.

    The spice mix was great! I'm not a big fan of tacos but the crunchiness of a quesadilla and the simple ingredients is great. Served with salsa, cole slaw, and lime crema. :)

    Absolutely delicious. Instead of onion & garlic powder, I sautéed real onions & garlic in the cast iron pan first with 2 jalapeños. Removed them, then cooked the ground meat with the spices. When the meat was cooked, I returned the onions & garlic to the meat and continued w/the recipe.

    This was pretty good. The meat in it was greasy but in a good and flavorful way. Had to keep the pan I used greased for cooking the tortillas.
