These are really simple and tasty. I usually add some pico de gallo to the quesadillas I make, plus some sliced jalapenos. Meat, beans, and cheese are the basic ingredients for me, and I do like to add other things. I almost always serve these with a side of salsa, and some sour cream if I've gone a bit overboard on the spiciness.

Hmmm, I'm not a cowboy but I'm really loving this quesadilla recipe and can't wait to give it a try. So perfect for snacking on those busy days when I want something light but fulfilling at the same time. I might even try using black beans instead of refried, mixing them in with the taco meat and then throw in a little salsa for a nice kick. Yum!

My daughter is crazy over quesadillas and this Cowboy Quesadillas recipe that I just discovered will definitely suit her taste. It's very simple but complete with the Mexican spices that give the quesadillas that irresistible aroma that Mexican food lovers are crazy over.
