We adore burgers—all kinds! We also love quesadillas and tacos, so I combined them to make amazing, very filling quesadilla burgers that my whole family enjoys. —Ann Marie Eberhart, Gig Harbor, Washington

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup salsa
  • 4 flour tortillas (12 inches)
  • 4 slices pepper jack or cheddar cheese
  • 4 tostada shells

Directions

  1. Gently shape beef into 4 balls, shaping just enough to keep together (do not compact). In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Working in batches, add beef. With a heavy metal spatula, flatten to 1/4- to 1/2-in. thickness. Cook until edges start to brown, about 1-1/2 minutes. Turn burgers; cook until well browned and a thermometer reads at least 160°, about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining beef. Remove from skillet; wipe skillet clean.
  2. Combine mayonnaise and salsa; reserve half for serving. Spread remaining mixture over tortillas. On the center of each tortilla, place 1 slice cheese, 1 burger and 1 tostada shell. Fold sides of tortilla over burger; fold top and bottom to close, pleating as you go.
  3. In batches, place wraps in skillet, seam side down. Cook on medium heat 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with remaining sauce.
