Do you love bacon?  Do you love cheeseburgers?  Ohh Ohh Pick me! Pick me!  I do!

When we lived in Fort Collins, Colorado, there was an amazing burger shop.  Great burgers, great fries and great atmosphere.  When we wanted to go out, we often went for burgers.  They were so good I would crave them and dream about them! 

However since moving to Minnesota my burger choices have gone down hill and good burgers are thus far nonexistent. 

A lack of great burger places has forced me to start looking for alternatives.

Sadly grilling season is over.  So a true on the grill cheeseburger just isn’t going to happen for me.  However, I can be creative and create a bacon cheeseburger quesadilla.

It takes less than 20 minutes to whip up and tastes EXACTLY like a bacon cheeseburger!  Yum  Yum!

I love EASY recipes.  How many of you work full time and STILL have to get dinner on the table?  Or how many of you find yourself in a dinner rut?  The same 10 recipes over and over again. 

Or perhaps you are like me in the aspect that right at dinner time is an extra curricular activity, because that was the ONLY open time and dinner needs to be quick and often portable.   Sound familiar?

Welcome to my life. 

However don’t give up!  Give this bacon cheeseburger quesadilla recipe a try.  I love this recipe because it tastes EXACTLY like a bacon cheeseburger.  I love this recipe because it take 20 minutes or less to whip up.  I love this recipe because it can be eaten in the car and is portable.

And I REALLY  love this recipe because all the ingredients are always on hand.  I always keep a stash of RO*TEL in my pantry, ground beef in my freezer and bacon & cheese are regular fridge staples in my house. 

This is a recipe where you dump everything in a pan, cook it and then toss it with a heap of cheese between two tortillas.  Add dip of Ketchup, Mustard or your favorite barbecue sauce and you are good to go!  A family meal EVERYONE will love!

So where do I go to stock my pantry with RO*TEL, onions, ground beef and garlic?   Walmart of course!  Everything in one place for a great price!

Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadilla

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Total Time: 18 minutes

Yield: 4 Quesadillas


  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 4 strips of bacon, cooked & crumbled
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste or 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 {10 ounce} can of Ro*tel tomatoes & chilies any heat {we prefer mild}
  • 8" or 10" tortillas
  • Butter
  • 4 cups of cheese, shredded, any flavor
  • Ketchup {optional}
  • Mustard {optional}
  • Pickles {optional}


  1. In a large skillet, add ground beef, cooked bacon, onion, garlic and Ro*tel. Cook on medium heat until meat is cooked through, onions are translucent and most of the moisture is cooked off. {We don't want soggy quesadillas!}
  2. While meat is cooking, butter one side of each tortilla.
  3. Place tortilla in a large skillet or griddle butter side down. Layer with cheese then ground beef mixture then more cheese. Don't be shy with the cheese! Place second buttered tortilla on top of cheese butter side UP.
  4. Cook quesadillas for approximately 4 minutes on each side over medium heat. You don't want to cook too fast or the cheese wont melt. And you don't want to cook too slow or the cheese will never melt! Medium heat should do it.
  5. Once tortilla turns a golden color on the bottom, flip it and cook additional 3 - 4 minutes on other side. If you aren't sure how to flip it because it's so big, place a plate face down onto your quesadilla. Then using a spatula scoop up the quesadilla onto the plate then flip plate over so it's in the correct position and slide quesadilla off. This will ensure no spillage of yummy insides!
  6. Once done, use a knife or pizza cutter to cut into 6 pieces.
  7. Serve with ketchup, mustard & pickles!
