DIRECTIONS

  1. Make the special sauce: In a medium bowl, stir all sauce ingredients together until well combined. 
  2. Make the quesadillas: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add ground beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until beef is cooked through and no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the ground beef to a plate.  Drain excess fat from skillet and wipe clean with paper towels.
  3. Heat ½ tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add a flour tortilla and top one half of the tortilla with 1 ½ slices of American cheese, a small handful of cheddar, and a generous spoonful of ground beef. Sprinkle with some onions. Drizzle with special sauce and top with another 1 ½ slices American cheese and small handful of cheddar. Fold the untopped half over the topped half and cook until deeply golden, about 1 minute. Flip quesadilla and cook 1 to 2 minutes more until golden on the bottom side. 
  4. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make three more quesadillas. 
  5. Slice into triangles, and top your Quesadilla Big Mac with pickles.
