Beef Quesadilla with onions and cheese

Thank God for Mexican food! We are big fans in the Peterson household. I mentioned that this dish took 20 minutes to cook, 10 minutes to eat (if you take your time), and 5 minutes to clean up. Can't beat that time frame especially on a weeknight.

1 pound ground beef
1/2 C refried beans
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies, drained
1/2 t oregano
1/2 t ground cumin
1/4 t salt
1 t olive oil
sliced onions
flour tortillas (I like the extra soft or fajita style)
2 T butter, softened or spreadable
handfuls of Mexican cheese

1. In a large skillet, brown the ground beef until no longer pink. Drain. Stir in the beans, chilies, oregano, cumin, and salt. Cook over low heat for 3-4 minutes. Set aside in a bowl and wipe skillet clean. Add olive oil to skillet and heat. Cook onions until soft. Set aside in a small bowl.
2. Brush one side of the tortilla with butter.  Heat skillet again and toss tortilla over heat butter side down. Spoon desired amount of beef into tortilla. Add onion and cheese. Fold over with your spatula and flip once bottom is to desired browning.
3. Best served with sour cream, salsa and guacamole so have that handy too if you're fly like that!
