    Smoked pulled beef quesadillas sauce ideas?

    Can anyone recommend a simple make-at-home sauce for pulled beef quesadillas w/ cheddar cheese? Something subtle. I have BBQ sauce, I have Meathead's burger glop, and ranch. I just don't think any of those are what I'm looking for.

    Ideas?

    Ever use Las Palmas enchilada sauce as a base? I use it in my beans a lot. Might work well for you with a little ingenuity...

      I'm a sucker for a good bell pepper and onion flavor, maybe some american cheese, and a little Sriracha.

        The sauce from a can of chipotles mixed with either mayo, sour cream or both. Mix to your taste in terms of heat, I am a fan of doing this, quick and easy.

          scorched_porch I was going to say the same thing. It makes a great base. I usually add fresh roasted jalapeños, chopped onion, roasted garlic and maybe a touch of cumin. This is what I do, but I love hot, smokey and savory enchilada sauce.

            Bingo. Or add some chipotle jalapeno's in there with a little adobo and you're golden.

            Dang Spinaker, add about two lbs of jack & cheddar cheese to that and I'm in!

          Thansk guys for the ideas. What I neglected to add to my question was the line "that I can make in the next hour w/o going to the store". Lol.

          I have adobo, sour cream, sriracha. I'm thinking maybe mixing differing amounts of these for now.

          Keep the ideas coming though for a future sauce after a grocery store trip!

            Then I vote for Adobo +Sour cream. Got limes? Squeeze some juice in there. Have fun!

            I couldn't find the stupid adobo, I know I'd just seen it. Blast! Anyway, I ended up mixing sour cream and sriracha. It was great. Sour cream is usually what I and the kids use for quesadillas, and sriracha is just awesome on smoked beef.

            I appreciate the ideas. It's responses like this that make me realize how much I don't know about cooking. I wouldn't have ever thought of half the things you guys brought up.

              Sriracha is good with just about anything. With sour cream I bet its really good. I'd probably have to add something additional to get a bit more heat than just Sriracha. Probably some chopped Habs or Serranos.

              If you aint sweatin', you aint liken it!!

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
