Blackstone Cheeseburger Quesadilla


To make this delectable Blackstone Cheeseburger Quesadilla, you will need:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or a blend of your choice)
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup pickles, chopped
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Kitchen Equipment

You’ll need the following equipment to prepare this recipe:

  • Blackstone griddle (or a large skillet if you don’t have a griddle)
  • Spatula
  • Mixing bowl
  • Knife and cutting board
  • Measuring cups and spoons


  1. Prepare the Ground Beef: Preheat your Blackstone griddle to medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and chopped onion to the griddle. Cook, breaking up the meat with a spatula, until the beef is browned and the onions are tender. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  2. Assemble the Quesadillas: Lay out the flour tortillas on a clean surface. Spread a thin layer of ketchup and mustard on half of each tortilla. Evenly distribute the cooked ground beef mixture over the ketchup and mustard. Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheese on top of the beef.
  3. Add Fresh Ingredients: Top the cheese with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and chopped pickles. Fold the tortillas in half to create half-moon shapes.
  4. Cook the Quesadillas: Melt the butter on the griddle. Place the quesadillas on the griddle and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the tortillas are golden brown and crispy, and the cheese is melted.
  5. Serve: Remove the quesadillas from the griddle and let them cool slightly. Cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve immediately. You can add a drizzle of mayonnaise if desired.

Tips and Tricks

  • Customize Your Quesadilla: Feel free to add or substitute ingredients such as bacon, jalapeños, or sautéed mushrooms for extra flavor.
  • Cheese Choices: Experiment with different cheeses like mozzarella, pepper jack, or a Mexican blend to change up the flavor profile.
  • Sauce Options: Try adding barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, or hot sauce for a different twist.

Storing Leftovers

Store any leftover quesadilla wedges in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, place them in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10 minutes, or until warmed through. Avoid reheating in the microwave to maintain the crispy texture.


Blackstone Cheeseburger Quesadillas pair wonderfully with:

  • French fries or sweet potato fries
  • A fresh green salad
  • Guacamole and salsa
  • A cold beer or a refreshing soda
