Ingredients

  • 8 large flour tortillas (burrito size)
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 15-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed 
  • 3 cups Colby and Monterey jack cheese, fancy shredded
  • ½ cup of your favorite salsa
  • 1 bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 2 green onions, sliced thin
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 ½ teaspoons cumin

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 18×13 sheet pans

Additions & Substitutions

Protein: While the recipe calls for ground beef, you could definitely swap this out for grilled chicken or carnitas shredded pork. You can also opt for vegetarian quesadillas and leave the meat out altogether.

Taco Seasoning: Feel free to use a taco seasoning pack instead of making your own seasoning! Just substitute out the chili powder, cumin, paprika, kosher salt, and black pepper

Toppings: There are tons of extra toppings you can add to your quesadillas. Here are some of our favorites:

How to Make Sheet Pan Quesadillas in the Oven

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Get out both of your sheet pans, and very lightly spray just one of them with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large skillet, over medium heat, add olive oil, bell peppers, and yellow onion. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring often to ensure that the veggies are evenly cooked.
  4. Add the ground beef and minced garlic to the sauteed bell peppers and onion. Cook until the meat is completely browned.
  5. Remove from the heat and drain any grease from the pan.
  6. Return the meat and veggie mixture to the skillet and add in the chili powder, cumin, paprika, kosher salt, black pepper, black beans, black olives, and salsa. Stir well after adding each ingredient.
  7. Place 6 of the flour tortillas around the edges of the lightly sprayed sheet pan. Make sure the tortillas overlap and are hanging halfway over the edge of the pan, leaving a gap in the center. Then, place 1 tortilla over the bottom center gap of the sheet pan
  8. Evenly spread the skillet mixture over the top of the tortillas. Then, sprinkle the cheese on top of the mixture and top off with sliced green onions.
  9. Place the final tortilla over the top center of the mixture. 
  10. Starting at either side of the sheet pan, carefully, but tightly begin to fold the tortillas towards the middle of the pan.
  11. When all sides are folded, place the 2nd sheet pan on top of the folded tortillas. This is to ensure that the edges do not come apart during baking.
  12. Bake for 20 minutes.
  13. Remove the pans from the oven. Remove the top sheet pan, and put the bottom sheet pan back in the oven. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  14. Remove from the oven and allow the quesadilla to slightly cool before cutting into servings.
  15. Serve with your choice of toppings and enjoy!

How to Store Leftovers

Store leftover quesadillas in a Ziploc bag. Be sure to press out any air to save them from getting stale. To reheat, and keep the quesadillas nice and crunchy I recommend popping them back in the oven or using a toaster oven, set at 325-350 for about 10 minutes.

Sheet pan quesadillas can be frozen for easy meals later. After cooking, cut the quesadillas in the sheet pan, then place the pan into the freezer and allow the quesadillas to firm up. Remove the quesadillas and wrap them tightly in plastic, then place them in a Ziploc freezer bag and put them back into the freezer for up to 2 months. Reheat in the oven when you are ready to enjoy it!

  1. This was delicious, my kids and I loved it but it was so hard to cut through they ended up picking it up by hand. Is that expected? Was it maybe the kind of tortilla I used? Suggestions to make it easier?

  2. I feel 425 is too hot. I had on the middle rack and the bottom got too dark. I would cook at a lower temp next time. Very goo tho.
