Shredded Beef Quesadillas

Rate this Recipe

Serves 6


12 large taco or fajita size flour tortillas
1 cup chipotle BBQ sauce
2 Cups leftover Southwestern Pot Roast, shredded and mixed with juices from roasting pan (separate recipe below)
1 cup finely chopped red onion
2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
2 tablespoons Olive oil
salsa, jalapeno ranch dip, for topping
  1. Brush one side of 6 tortillas with chipotle BBQ sauce. Layer each with 1 tablespoon of cheese, 2 tablespoons of beef, 1 tablespoon chopped red onion, then 1 more tablespoon of shredded cheese. Top each with remaining tortillas.
  2. Preheat large nonstick skillet to medium-high heat. Add olive oil to pan and place tortilla in hot oil.
  3. Brush top side of tortilla with enough olive oil to cover. Brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side, or until deep golden brown, cheese is melted, and filling is hot. Repeat with remaining quesadillas and cut into wedges with pizza cutter. Serve hot and top with salsa or ranch dip.
  4. Chef's note: Other quesadilla topping options include diced mild green chilies, chopped olives, queso sauce, and salsa.
  5. Chef's note (2): If you want to add rice to the quesadillas it does add another level of texture and flavor. We recommend using the Cilantro Lime Rice which the recipe can be found at
