Cheesy ground beef quesadillas


Chussy Quesadilla was the 4th recipe I've ever published in A Flavor Journal! Needless to say, it's time to glow up!

Although the pictures are much better than they used to be, I actually decided to simplify the recipe list a bit. This recipe now includes ten main ingredients, not counting the butter (or oil) or salt and pepper. I'm currently working on a list of staples, so I'll be linking to that very soon! It is created as a supplier of ingredients that you should always have on hand, and make your life a lot easier. It won't be crazy, but the basic suggestions (like oil, salt, and pepper) will be on it.
