Earlier this week I shared my Pressure Cooker Sloppy Joes recipe. When I was preparing it, I made a nice big batch of it so that I could use it for a few different recipes. In addition to the Sloppy Joes, I also shared a recipe for Sloppy Joe Dip, which I could truthfully just eat with a spoon like chili. I had enough Sloppy Joe mixture to make one more meal – Sloppy Joe Quesadillas. While the meal is a tad messy, it’s also simple and tasty so you won’t mind needing an extra napkin. My youngest especially enjoyed this meal and quickly asked for seconds. The sloppy joe mixture itself is gluten-free, so if you want to make this meal gluten-free all you need to do is use a gluten-free tortilla. The slightly sweet and tangy flavor paired really well with the white corn quesadillas that I used. I used “taco truck” sized tortillas, whch aren’t much larger than a piece of bread. You could use a larger tortilla, all you’ll need to do is increase the amount of sloppy joe mixture that you use. Here’s how I make it.
Sloppy Joe Quesadillas
This recipe makes 1 individual sized quesadilla.
- measuring cup
- 1/3 – 1/2 cup sloppy joe mixture
- 2 street tacos tortillas (I used Mission white corn which are gluten-free)
- 2 oz shredded cheese (taco, mexican, cheddar 0r whatever your favorite is will work)
Butter one side of one tortilla and place it butter-side down in the skillet.
Place the sloppy joe mixture onto the taco.
Sprinkle the cheese on top of the sloppy joe.
Butter one side of a second tortilla and place it butter-side up on top of everything else.
Heat over medium flame until golden brown, turning over occasionally.
