Quesadilla Burgers!

It's grilling season KIDS! We wanted something fun and original to kick off the season. "Nacho" ordinary burger HERE!.....

Quesadilla Burger

Quesadilla Burger
JennyMac's Lipsmack

1 lb pound lean ground beef
1 cup salsa, drained of liquid
1 tbsp. McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 tbsp. Taco seasoning
8 oz. Pepper Jack Cheese (yes, they make lower fat version now!), sliced
1 tomato, sliced
shredded lettuce
2 large tortillas
extras, ketchup, mustard, mayo

Mix ground beef, salsa and taco seasoning in a large bowl. Press into one LARGE burger* (slightly larger than your tortilla) Sprinkle steak seasoning on both sides and grill until center is the temperature of your favorite (medium, rare, well done). Place cheese on burger for last minute to melt and the tortillas on the upper rack to 'warm and toughen' up a bit.

Place tortilla on cutting board, then tomato, burger, lettuce and finish with tortilla. Cut into quarters or sixths with a serrated knife.

We just dipped our burger quarters in our ketchup. This keeps the tortilla from sliding all around and making it more messy to eat. These were fun and Tasty!

*I realize that a large burger will be difficult to handle for you. If you have a pizza peel (we have a metal one) putting it on the grill and flipping it is a breeze. But if you don't, chill burger until firm before you put it on the grill and put it on with TWO hands. Use two turners to lift it onto a plate. Invert it onto another plate and slide it back on the grill.

OH before I sign off....Looky what I found in my tortilla bag....

Do you know what you are looking at yet?

Someone in the Mission Tortilla factory wasn't paying attention! When they changed from whole wheat dough to flour dough.....the quality inspector blinked or sneezed or something....

and missed this SPECIAL tortilla. Half flour and half low carb. My package was for 8 tortillas. THIS WAS A BONUS or 9th tortilla. How fun. I am sure there are some unappreciative people out there who would call/write and complain about this error to the company.

I said "SCORE." I kinda don't wanna eat him either....I could put it up on e-bay next to the Virgin Mary toast....
