Avocado and Beef Quesadillas in the Oven Oven baked flipping required! What is better than beefy and cheesy quesadillas? What if we add avocado (super yum) and make them easier by baking them in the oven!

These Oven Baked Quesadillas are taken over the top with the additions of avocado.  Not only do we have delicious beef quesadillas, we have avocado and beef quesadillas!

Now I know what you are thinking…why have I never thought about adding avocado to my quesadillas or baking them in the oven?  I was thinking the same thing!  It was actually my moms idea!

taco meat

For the scrumptious taco meat that we are going to put in our beef quesadillas, I sautéed some diced onion in avocado oil, then added in the beef and cooked it until it was done and crumbled.  I then added in all of my seasonings.


What is better than getting a hot dinner on the table with as little fuss as possible.  To get started with these quesadillas in the oven, grease a large sheet pan or spray it with cooking spray.

Of course, the bigger the sheet pan, the more quesadillas you can make.  You can even do 2 sheet pans at a time if you have a large family.

So we grease our sheet pan and then lay the tortillas on top.  layer on your toppings (cheese, taco meat, avocado, more cheese) then top with another tortilla.

I used tortillas that were medium sized and lower carb.  You can use whichever ones you like!

quesadillas in the oven

Now we just bake them in the oven and they come out perfectly crispy and the cheese is perfectly melty without flipping them!

    I forgot your star rating! Plus the tortillas are 11g carbs each, and 8g fiber =3g net carbs.

    Another winner, Jennifer! I made these tonight and they turned out great. Very tasty. I doubled the recipe and was able to make five quesadillas without skimping on the amount in each one. I used La Tortilla Factory low carb whole wheat tortillas–10 in a package, hence the five. Thanks for taking care of we ketoers!
