    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!!

              Spinaker wow, you like heat. Sriracha is all the heat I can handle really.
