Corned beef and cabbage is a beloved Irish-American dish, especially popular during St. Patrick's Day celebrations. This recipe takes those familiar flavors and transforms them into a Tex-Mex-inspired dish with the addition of cheese and tortillas, creating a delightful fusion of Irish and Mexican cuisine.


8 small flour tortillas
2 cups cooked corned beef, shredded or thinly sliced
2 cups cabbage, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Thousand Island dressing or Russian dressing
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper, to taste
Optional: chopped fresh parsley or scallions for garnish


Prepare the Filling:

In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add sliced cabbage and sautΓ© until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add shredded corned beef to the skillet and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring to combine.
Assemble the Quesadillas:

Place a tortilla on a flat surface. Spread a thin layer of Thousand Island dressing on one side of the tortilla.
Spoon a portion of the corned beef and cabbage mixture onto half of the tortilla.
Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the filling.

Fold the tortilla in half to cover the filling, creating a half-moon shape.

Cook the Quesadillas:

Heat a clean skillet or griddle over medium heat. Place the assembled quesadilla in the skillet and cook until golden brown and crispy on both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side.
Serve and Garnish:

Remove the quesadilla from the skillet and let it cool slightly before slicing into wedges.

Garnish with chopped fresh parsley or scallions, if desired.

Serve the Irish Corned Beef & Cabbage Cheese Quesadillas warm with additional Thousand Island dressing or your favorite dipping sauce.
