Homemade Cheeseburger Quesadillas

Fill, fold, and grill… these simple Cheeseburger Quesadillas are a yummy 30-minute meal. They’re nice and filling, super family friendly, and you can customize them however you want!

This recipe is delicious paired along-side soup in winter, or a crisp salad in summer. I also like to whip up a little secret sauce (in Idaho we call it Fry-sauce), for dipping.


Sometimes I add sliced dill pickles inside my quesadillas to go along with the cheeseburger flavor. You can also add crisp bacon, even shredded lettuce, and any and all your favorites…be creative!

For the tortillas, I have found that low-carb tortillas work very well, cutting back on additional fat and carbs. Gluten-free tortillas work really well too. If you want you could even make homemade tortillas, it will just add some extra time to the recipe.

Filling for Cheeseburger Quesadillas

Preparing the Cheeseburger Quesadilla Filling

The filling for these cheeseburger tortillas can be made in one skillet. Start by browning and draining the ground beef then add water, vinegar, onion soup mix, ketchup, mustard, and garlic.

Stir to combine and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes.

Finishing the Quesadillas

Start by heating a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Next, add a large tortilla and then pour your filling onto half of the tortilla. To finish the filling off, add cheese and chopped tomato (and pickles if you’d like).

Now it’s time to fold and grill your quesadilla. I like to press it down and compact it (as you can see from the photos above I just used a lid that I had in the kitchen). After you’ve grilled one side for 2 to 3 minutes, flip the quesadilla over to grill the other side.

Once it’s crispy and grilled to perfection, turn it onto a cutting board and slice it with a pizza cutter.

Serving Tips

My favorite way to serve these simple Cheeseburger Quesadillas is with warm roasted red-pepper tomato soup, garnished with sliced avocado. It really is my comfort food on a cold winter night!

Let me know if you have any other side ideas for these cheeseburger quesadillas! I’m sure some fries would go nicely with them. 🙂
