Hamburger Qesadillas 1Are you looking for a simple and delicious dinner?  Then you have to try this Hamburger Quesadillas recipe.  Imagine taking a bite of a delicious mix of ground beef, melting cheese, black beans, corn, green peppers, and onions.  The simple flavors blend so well together! It’s hard to stop eating after taking one bite.  One reason I like this recipe is it provides me with an opportunity to have some healthy corn and beans hidden in it so my daughter doesn’t notice as she is dipping them in salsa, guacamole, or sour cream.  I usually have all of the ingredients for this recipe in my cupboard and freezer, and I’m guessing you may too.  So let’s get started on this weeknight favorite.
