The Perfect Quesadilla
Let’s be honest, at some point in our lives, most people have loved fast food Mexican food. If you’re anything like us, we loved a good Quesadilla. They are simple, flavorful, fulfilling, and super easy to make.
Using our organically sourced Spicy Mama bbq rub and adding cumin you have the perfect taco seasoning that isn’t full of fillers, anti-caking agents, preservatives, etc. You can feel good about serving this to your friends and family.
As always, this is a simple recipe that is quick and easy for busy families yet is full of flavor. We went simple, by adding shredded cheese and ground taco beef into our quesadillas, but the sky is the limit. You can add peppers, onions, jalapenos to make it your own.
If you haven’t done any cooking on griddle or plancha, I would highly recommend it. It’s a great and easy way to cook delicious food for your family.
