Step 1: Prepare the beef: Add the beef, chilli powder, cumin, and paprika in a heated medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add sprinkles of salt and pepper and cook the beef for about 6 minutes or until no longer pink. drain any excess fat.

Step 2: To make the cilantro-lime rice: Add the white rice, lime juice, and cilantro in a medium bowl. Toss with a fork and set aside.

Step 3: To make the quesadillas: Heat over medium-high heat a large nonstick pan. Add the tortilla once the pan is hot and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Place another tortilla on top and cook for about 2 minutes on each side until the cheese has melted. Do this with the rest of the tortillas and cheddar.

Step 4: To build the Quesaritos: On a cutting board or plate, place the quesadillas. Start with some rice, top it with meat, nacho cheese, then, sour cream. Roll it up like a burrito. Do the same for the rest of the ingredients.

Step 5: Rewarm over medium-high heat the nonstick pan. Add two Quesaritos once the pan is hot. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until the outside is golden and somewhat crispy.

Step 6: Transfer on a serving plate and serve immediately. Enjoy!
