Hungry Girl Recipe: Cheeseburger Quesadilla

We tried this Hungry Girl recipe a few months ago, but it wasn't much of a hit. The recipe calls for a meatless hamburger patty. We ended up using turkey patties.

I wasn't impressed.

So this time we used lean ground beef. It was MUCH better. Obviously, the calorie count was not as low as listed in the book, but that's ok. ;)

This is the recipe we used too make 4 Quesadillas.

1 pound of lean ground beef
1 onion- chopped
4 low fat tortillas
4 slices American cheese, chopped
4 tbsp. of pickles chopped

Brown the beef in a skillet, drain grease and set aside.

Bring a skillet sprayed with non-stick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion, until softened, for 3 to 5 minutes. 

Lay tortilla flat and evenly top with chopped cheese. Top one half with onion, burger pieces and pickles.

If needed, clean the skillet. Re-spray skillet and return to medium-high heat. Place the half-filled tortilla flat in the skillet and cook for 2 minutes.

Fold the cheese-only half over the filling and press lightly to seal. Carefully flip and cook until crispy, about 3 minutes.

We had these with sweet potato fries and they were amazing. We all loved it!
