Tips for Cheesy Beef Quesadillas:

- Leftovers – If you have leftover ground beef, you can still use the Blackstone to cook this quesadilla. Simple place your tortilla on the griddle then add in your favorite toppings for a delicious meal.
- Seasoning – You can add in some garlic powder or chili powder for extra flavoring.
- Cooking Quesadilla – It doesn’t take long for the tortilla to get crispy. Make sure you stay close by so you can flip the tortilla.
- Carefully Flip – When you are flipping the quesadilla, make sure to carefully flip. You want to make sure that the ingredients stay within the tortilla.
How to Store and Reheat Leftovers:
Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4-5 days. When you are want to reheat, you can reheat the quesadilla on the stove top or the air fryer. This will result in that crispy texture.
