Quesadillas with ground beef, peppers, and mushroom

Quesadillas are the Mexican food equivalent of a sandwich: You can stick just about anything in a tortilla and it will be delicious.

And did I mention my absolute adoration for good Mexican food? No? Well, I love it. Can’t get enough. Except for refried beans, I’m not a big fan of those.
