Meatloaf Quesadillas with Cilantro Cream

For the Cilantro Cream:
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup fresh cilantro -- plus more for garnish
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 teaspoons green hot sauce
For the Quesadillas:
2 cups leftover Mini Skillet Meatloaves -- crumbled
1 can black beans -- (14.5 ounce) drained and rinsed
1 scallion -- chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
8 8 inch flour tortillas
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Make the cilantro cream: Puree the sour cream, cilantro, lime juice and hot sauce in a blender until smooth.

Prepare the quesadillas: Mix the meatloaf, beans, scallion, cumin, cayenne, and salt and black pepper to taste in a bowl.

Melt 1/2 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place a tortilla in the pan, sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese, then top with one-quarter of the meat mixture and another 1/4 cup cheese. Top with another tortilla and cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining butter, tortillas and filling. Cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve with the cilantro cream.


I just used my own meatloaf, but there is a recipe that goes with this recipe in M.C. (that stands for MasterCook..... )

Didn't take a picture of the quesadilla plated, darn it - it really looked pretty.

What a cool idea for leftover meatloaf! And what a DUH moment not to have thought of it before. I love the idea of the cream to go with it.

Your cilantro cream sounds delicious, Jean! I love quesadillas in almost any form, so I'll keep these in mind for the next time I have leftover meatloaf.

I am so excited to make these tomorrow for lunch

Re: Meatloaf Quesadillas - cjs - 06-18-2011

I hope you like them as much as we did, Denise - for some reason the flavors just worked.

Re: Meatloaf Quesadillas - Mare749 - 06-18-2011

Now I want to make a meatloaf just so we have the leftovers!

You know, we like meatloaf right out of the oven the first time well enough, but sometimes it's more fun to play with the leftovers. Jean, you came up with a great idea!

Re: Meatloaf Quesadillas - cjs - 06-18-2011

Not me, but I'm stealing the idea and working on it....a little.

Re: Meatloaf Quesadillas - DFen911 - 06-18-2011
