Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadillas

Jump to Recipe

Burgers and Mexican are very popular choices in my home so I make them often. Then I decided to mash things up and made some Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadillas that got devoured by my crew. So much so that I ended up making another round of them after later that evening.

The special sauce is what really brings the “burger” flavor out in this dish. And it is a super simple sauce to pull together- whisking helps it smooth out faster. It doubles as a fry sauce too. My family prefers Mt. Olive Hamburger Dill Pickles on our burgers, so that is what I use for the juice in the sauce.

I made several large (burrito-sized) quesadillas but you could certainly make small soft taco sized ones and just not cut them as much. I didn’t make a side dish to go with it but you could go classic and do French Fries. You could also try my Black Bean Salad that has some hints of Tex-Mex and would be yummy with these quesadillas.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
