Quesadilla Cake

Quesadilla Cake


Five layers of quesadilla means five times as much flavor than your everyday beef quesadilla.
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 medium flour tortillas
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar
  • 1 c. shredded Monterey jack
  • Pico de gallo
  • Sour cream
  • Fresh cilantro
  1. Preheat oven to 400° and grease an 8" or 9" springform pan with cooking spray. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft, about 5 minutes, then add garlic and spices and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add ground beef and cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Drain fat.
  2. Return beef mixture to skillet over medium heat and stir in tomatoes and tomato paste. Cook 2 minutes more, then season with salt and pepper.
  3. Build cake: Place a tortilla on bottom of prepared springform pan. Top with a layer of beef mixture and a handful of both cheeses. Repeat for five layers total, ending with cheese.
  4. Bake until cheese is melty and tortillas are warmed through, 20 minutes. Let cool in pan 5 minutes.
  5. Garnish with desired toppings before slicing and serving.
