Fajita Quesadillas

Recipe by  

"I came up with this one night when I didn't know what to cook. I had leftover steak in the fridge, so I decided to get creative. These came out wonderful! The measurements are approximations, so feel free to change them according to your tastes. Serve with salsa, guacamole, and sour cream."

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and green bell pepper in the hot oil until onions are softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Season mixture with salt and transfer to a bowl.
  2. Brush 1 side of each tortilla with remaining oil. Place 1 tortilla, oil-side down, in the same skillet; sprinkle with 1/2 the steak, 1/2 the onion mixture, and 1/2 the Mexican cheese mixture. Place a second tortilla, oil-side up, onto cheese layer, pressing down with a spatula to seal.
  3. Cook quesadilla over medium heat until cheese melts and tortillas are browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove quesadilla from skillet and cut into wedges. Repeat with remaining ingredients for second quesadilla.

Excellent! I did not have leftover steak, but I did make this using flat iron steak that I had marinated in worchestershire sauce, salt, pepper and garlic. These were so simple to make and very satisfying. I served them w/ sour cream, salsa and mexican rice. Great way to strech a small amount of meat. I will def be making these again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Myself and the hubby loved it! I didn't have green pepper, but as a pepper lover I used 1 whole red pepper and 1 whole orange pepper. I also had extra steak that needed to be cooked and a lot of cheese, so I had enough stuff to make 3 Quesadillas. Had some corn as a side dish. That was more filling then we expected so we have some extra for lunch today! :)

very easy to make especially if you have leftover meat. My 14 yr. old loves to make these. I left my tortillas on a little longer so they were crisper to our liking. Overall great recipe, Thanks!

I used this as the base for Johnsonville's (R) Six Ingredient or Less challenge, subbing sausage in a 6 ingredient recipe. I made per the directions, using chopped cooked mild sausage in place of the steak (because sausage, peppers, and onions are perfect fit, right?!). I don't care for sausage, so it's tough for me to gauge, bit it was good w/the sausage and I'm sure would be prefect w/leftover steak, too. Leftover sausage, leftover steak....no matter what the protein, this is a great, quick, simple weeknight meal. THANKS for the recipe!
