  • 1 (1 pound) beef top sirloin, thinly sliced
  • 2 small onions, sliced
  • 2 green bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce (such as Bull’s-Eye® Texas-Style Bold Barbecue Sauce)
  • 8 (10-inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the Oven:
  • Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). This high temperature is key for achieving a crispy outer tortilla.
  1. Cook the Filling:
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the thinly sliced beef and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the beef is thoroughly browned.
  • Add the sliced onions and green bell peppers to the skillet with the beef. Continue to cook and stir the mixture until the vegetables have softened, which should take about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Pour the barbecue sauce over the beef, onions, and peppers. Let the mixture simmer until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 10 minutes, ensuring the flavors are well combined.
  1. Assemble the Quesadillas:
  • Lay out 4 tortillas on a baking sheet. Spoon the beef and vegetable mixture evenly onto each tortilla.
  • Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded Cheddar cheese over the beef mixture on each tortilla.
  • Cover each filled tortilla with another tortilla, pressing down slightly to form the quesadillas.
  1. Bake:
  • Place the quesadillas in the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Carefully flip each quesadilla over and continue to bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are crispy and golden brown.
  1. Serve:
  • Remove the quesadillas from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before cutting into wedges.
  • Serve hot, perhaps with a side of sour cream, extra barbecue sauce, or a fresh salad for a complete meal.
