Servings 6


  • 12 Burrito Sized Tortillas
  • 6 cups Colby Jack Cheese fine shredded
  • 1 4oz can Green Chilies
  • 1 15oz can Pinto Beans drained

For the Meat

  • 2 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Dried Minced Onion


  • Preheat oven to 400degF.
  • In a saute pan over medium-high heat, add ground beef and beef seasonings. Crumble and cook until no longer pink. Drain excess fat and set aside.
  • Line one baking sheet with parchment paper (let it overlap some so you can use it to lift the quesadilla out after). Lay out 6 tortillas so that half of each is hanging over the edge of the pan. Then add the 7th tortilla to center to fill in any holes. Sprinkle with 2 cups of cheese. Then sprinkle beans and green chilies. Lastly sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese.
  • Layer on 3 more tortillas, one of them cut in half Add 1 cup of cheese and cooked ground beef. Then add the remaining 2 cups of cheese. Place 2 more tortillas on top and fold bottom tortillas over the top.
  • Cover quesadilla with parchment paper. Place a second baking sheet on top and then place cast iron skillet (or another heavy oven-safe item to weigh it down). The baking sheet helps to evenly disperse the weight and the cast iron is to keep the quesadilla held together.
  • Place the stack in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove the baking sheet and cast iron. Using the parchment paper, lift the whole quesadilla onto a cutting board. Let rest at least 5 minutes before cutting. Then use a pizza cutter to put in half lengthwise then into 8-10 pieces.
