Spicy Steak Quesadillas


This was my first time making steak quesadillas. I am always buying Scott frozen ones! He said they were very good and really seemed to enjoy them…. in spite of having already eaten them for lunch the day I decided to surprise him with these for dinner. 🙂


4 (12-inch) flour tortillas
1/2 cup grated Cheddar, plus 1/4 cup
8 ounces sirloin steak, grilled to desired doneness and thinly sliced
1 to 2 tablespoons minced jalapeno
1/4 cup salsa, plus more for serving
Vegetable oil, for cooking
Cilantro sprigs, for garnish


Lay out 2 of the flour tortillas on a flat surface. Top with 1/2 cup of the Cheddar, spreading evenly over the tortillas. Divide the steak among the tortillas and sprinkle with the desired amount of jalapeno. Top with salsa and remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Top with remaining tortillas and press to seal.

Heat a large saute pan over high heat. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan and lower the heat to medium. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with the other quesadilla.

Let cool for 5 minutes. Slice into 8 or 10 pieces. Garnish with salsa and cilantro sprigs.
