30 Minute Beef Sheet Pan Quesadillas

These easy Beef Sheet Pan Quesadillas are filled with sauteed vegetables, ground beef and black beans, then layered between two tortillas, four layers of cheese, and baked until crispy and cheesy! They're perfect for weeknight dinners or big parties.













  • 1 pkg Joseph's Lavash Bread (4ct.) (or other high-fiber tortilla)
  • 1 lb. 93% lean ground beef
  • 2 green peppers, diced
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 oz. diced green chilis
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp oregano
  • ½ Tbsp smoked paprika
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 3 C reduced fat shredded Mexican-style cheese (divided)
  • ½ C cotija cheese crumbles


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Saute the green peppers, onions, and green chilis until soft, about 7-8 minutes. Respray the pan and add ground beef, garlic, cumin, oregano, paprika, and salt, cooking until the beef is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. Place two tortillas on the prepared baking sheet*, allowing one to slightly overlap the other and the edges to cover the sides of the baking sheet. Sprinkle 1 cup of Mexican cheese in an even layer, then add the meat and veggies. Spread the black beans over the meat. Sprinkle on the cotija cheese, then another 1½ cups of Mexican cheese. Press the two remaining tortillas on top of the quesadillas, then sprinkle on the remaining ½ cup of Mexican cheese.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the top is nice and crispy. Allow the sheet pan quesadillas to cool for 5 minutes on the pan, then slice into 12 squares and serve with your favorite toppings.**
