This truly might be the easiest ever barbecue beef slow cooker recipe. But when combined with slices of fresh mango and a handful of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, then pressed into a hot quesadilla? It’s just too good not to share.
If you love all three of these star ingredients by themselves, you’ll love them all together even more. And once you make the slow cooked smoky barbecue beef, you can use it in a bunch of other ways, too, so there’s really no reason not to make it! Am I an enabler, or what?
Slow Cooked Beef and Mango Quesadillas
Servings: 4 Quesadillas
- 2 pounds top of the round beef roast
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 4 large whole wheat tortillas
- 1 large mango peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 small red onion very thinly sliced
- 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- Combine beef and barbecue sauce in slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 to 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. When done, shred the meat by pulling against the grain of the meat with two forks.
- To assemble the quesadillas: On one half of each tortilla, spread 1/2 cup beef, 1/4 of the mango, 1/4 of the red onion, and 1/4 cup cheese. Fold the empty half over the filled half and either place on a lightly oiled grill or frying pan for 2-3 minutes per side, until the cheese melts.
*Note: This recipe makes more beef than you will use in the quesadillas.
I just made some BBQ chicken in the crockpot this weekend and your quesadillas look so good, I’m definitely going to try it tomorrow night :) Thanks!
I’m going to remember this for summer when the mangoes are at their cheapest (even then not that cheap, damn you NZ climate) Sounds brilliant, and brilliantly simple.
I’m mango obsessed right now so this recipe is right on cue.
This sounds amazing, a little tip for shredding meat- if you have a stand mixer (Kitchenaid) throw the warm meat in it with the paddle attachment in about 1 min all of you meat will be beautifully shredded- it has been a life changer for me
I do the same thing with my chicken never thought about doing it with beef…great idea for pulled beef or pork!!!
Ohhh this sounds so very, very amazing :) I love fruit in savory things. A nice sub for the usual coleslaw I dump on anything BBQ’d!
excuse me while I wipe the DROOL off of my chin. These look UNbelievably yummy! Can’t wait to try.
YUM!! What an interesting combination, sounds so good!
doesn’t the bbq sauce burn in the slow cooker? At least it has in mine… interesting recipe!
I’m excited to try this. I LOVE mango in quesadillas. Have you ever been to Agua Verde in the U-District and had their mangodilla? It’s one of my favorite foods ever.
i just have to say i love your way with words when describing food :) you truly make me feel as though i’m having a torrid, powerful, passionate affair with merely imagining taking a bite of such glorious creations… i simply love it :) thank you!
Oh my yum! This looks amazing…I am trying to stay away from red meat but I wonder what I could replace the beef with? Duck? That is definitely too ambitious for me but man, I need to find a way to explore this recipe.
I literally just salivated. What kind of tortilla is that?
I can’t wait to make this! I love the sweet and spicy and cheesiness of this recipe!

how many calories?? do any of your recipes have calories?
I’m making this for supper! My daughter is allergic to beef, so I am using a pork roast. Can’t wait to try it.
These look delicious! I’m concerned about 2 lb of meat for 4 quesadillas? Is this correct?
Thanks for your comment! I should have noted this above: You will have beef left over since you only use 1/2 cup of the shredded meat in each quesadilla. The reason I called for 2 lbs is because most beef roasts are sold in portions that weigh at least 2 lbs and up.
It’s in the crock pot now!!
