Grilled Steak Fajita Quesadillas

Sometimes you just need to change thing up a bit. I have a serious love of all kinds of Spanish and Mexican foods. Everyone loves fajitas right? Why not make it a quesadilla? I am so glad I did. Thin slices of steak, peppers, onions and we cant forget the cheese! This time I grilled them instead of just cooking them a flat skillet. Grill marks are so purdy. There is also a trick in the cooking directions to make your quesadillas never fall apart again, along with it helping with portion control. hehe


Ingredients
1 lb flank steak
2 cloves of garlic, smashed
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 lime
3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 large white onion
2 large red bell peppers
2 cups grated Monterrey jack cheese 
flour tortillas


Directions
Cut flank steak into strips 1/4-inch wide and 3 inches long. 

Mix Worcestershire sauce, lime and garlic. Marinate the steak for 30 minutes.

While steak is marinating, cut onion and bell pepper into 1/4-inch wide strips. Heat olive oil in a non stick skillet over medium heat and cook until they begin to sweat.

Remove the peppers and onions with a slotted spoon to a paper plate to drain.

Remove the steak from the marinade and brown in same skillet until done about 3-4 minutes depending on how you like your steak cooked.

Remove the cooked steak and set aside.

Spray your grill pan with cooking spray or spray the same non-stick skillet.

Take one tortilla and put a small amount of grated cheese, meat , onion and bell pepper, then some more cheese on half the tortilla. Fold the tortilla in half {this is the trick to keep them together, plus now you will only eat 4 pieces ;) } and repeat the process with remaining tortillas. 

Place 2 of the tortillas in grill pan or skillet and cook until cheese melts and you see those lovely grill marks. Flip and cook on other side same amount of time.

Slice each tortilla with a pizza cutter into 4 pieces and serve with your favorite dipping sides!

  1. I'm just discovering this summer what a handy, quick meal quesadillas can be. Thanks for the new idea! Oh, and try mixing some no-fat refried beans with chopped green chile and spread a thin layer on one side of the tortilla--delicious *and* also helps hold those other ingredients together!
