I remember living off of quesadillas back in college. It was nothing fancy. All I really needed was two slices of tortilla and a cheese slice or two. That’s it. And it only cost me $1 or so.

But these quesadillas here. Boy, I can’t help but wonder how much my college experience would have improved with these bad boys here.

The ground beef is crumbled in taco seasoning and sits on a layer of creamy refried beans, not to mention the abundant avocado goodness on top, sandwiched in between two tortillas baked to absolute crisp perfection.

It’s simply quesadilla heaven right here. And something I plan to have every single night this week. After all, I have a lot of lost time to make up for.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add ground beef and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks. Drain excess fat and stir in taco seasoning and green chiles; set aside.
  3. Top tortilla with refried beans, ground beef mixture, avocado and mozzarella, and then top with another tortilla. Repeat with remaining tortillas to make 4 quesadillas.
  4. Place quesadillas onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake until the cheese has melted, about 8-10 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with cilantro, if desired.
