Beef & Chorizo Quesadilla’s is a quick snack or dinner option if you are short on time. The meat mixture along with cheddar & queso fresco cheese are layered between two flour tortillas and fried until the tortilla is golden brown and the cheese has melted and is oozing out the sides.
Are you familiar with chorizo sausage? It’s a variety of heavily seasoned sausage, either cured or fresh, that is common in Spanish and Mexican cuisine. It has a little kick to it, but not too much. I like to mix chorizo with beef when I make Mexican dishes as fresh chorizo can be very greasy and adding it to beef cuts back on the grease and calories.
Top the Beef & Chorizo Quesadilla with your favorite toppings: sour cream, salsa, green onions, more cheese, avocado, fresh tomatoes, lettuce, etc. I went with sour cream, salsa and green onions for my toppings.
Serve this up with your favorite Mexican beer, Sangria or a Margarita!
