Quesadilla Burgers may just be your new favorite easy dinner. They’ll please a crowd too!
Quesadilla Burgers are sliders wrapped in a tortilla, lightly fried in a pan to give the outside of the tortilla a little crispness that is a nice change up from the traditional burger bun. I wasn’t going for the burger version of a taco, at least not full force with it.
For a little something different, I use taco seasonings in this recipe to give the patties a subtle flavor. It’s taken to another level with salsa and guac, which are totally optional.
Well, the salsa is, but the guacamole is a must for me. Even smashed avocado would do if you ask me!
My favorite things about these burgers is the tortilla. The crisp outside is pretty awesome. There is nothing wrong with a fluffy fresh baked burger bun, but sometimes a change is needed.
This isn’t just something I made up on my own though. Quite a few years ago I was partaking in Happy Hour at Appleby’s with a few friends and my choice of appetizer was quesadilla burgers.
This is somewhat how I remember them. They weren’t made with taco meat but instead a regular burger patty and the only nod to a quesadilla was the tortilla.
For this recipe, I added some taco seasonings. For a traditional burger patty you can use this recipe here.
Do you ever meet up with friends for Happy Hour? These days I’d be more inclined to have some friends over for an appetizer potluck and a few cocktails for an evening of catching up. And lots of laughs.
If you’re long overdue for a visit with friends, plan a little Happy Hour of your own!
Here at Food Fanatic we have quite a variety of appetizer recipes to choose from. There’s something for everyone. :)
