  • 1 lb ground beef cooked, crumbled, and fat drained
  • 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • couple pinches cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup burger pickles roughly chopped
  • 2 tomatoes thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow onion thinly sliced
  • McCain Smiles Mashed Potato Shapes or McCain Extra Crispy Crinkle Fries cooked according to package directions
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6 taco-sized soft flour tortillas
  • cooking spray

For the Burger Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard
  • 2 sprinkles Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp prepared horseradish


  1. Combine the cooked ground beef with the mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Set aside.
  2. Combine the ingredients for the burger sauce. Set aside.
  3. Heat a large or medium nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Spray well with cooking spray.
  4. Lay a tortilla in the pan. One one half of the tortilla, layer cheese, meat, pickle, fries, more cheese, onion, tomato (2 slices), and more cheese.

  5. Use thongs to fold the side of the tortilla without toppings over onto the toppings forming a half circle quesadilla.
  6. Cook gently until underside is golden and toasty. Carefully flip the tortilla (I find using two rubber spatulas, one on either side, works best) to toast the other side.
  7. Serve tortilla with Burger Sauce. Yields 6 servings.
