Steak Fajita Quesadillas

We had some leftover grilled carne asada from dinner last night.  Meg and I decided to make a lunch quesadilla with the grilled steak.  You could also substitute cooked chicken and it would be just as delicious.


1 large tortilla wrap

2-3 slices cheese of your choice

Grilled steak (thinly sliced) and peppers

2-3 Tablespoons salsa

Sour cream or guacamole garnish

Place cheese slices over one half of the tortilla.

Cover the cheese with the cooked steak and peppers.

Spoon salsa over the steak.

Fold the tortilla in half .

Place on a panini grill or grill pan and cook until the cheese melts.

Cut the quesadilla into triangles.  Serve with sour cream or guacamole garnish.

Chicken and Corn Quesadillas with Guacamole

We had quesadillas for lunch today.  We tried putting some corn, chicken, cheese and salsa on a tortilla and grilled it.  We made a quick guacamole to put on top and voila!  There’s not really any exact ingredients, just use what you have on hand.  Here’s what we used:


Frozen corn, pepper and black bean mix, defrosted


Cooked chicken

Cheese, we used Cotija

Green or red salsa

Place the corn/pepper mix on one half of the tortilla.

Place the cooked chicken over the corn.

Add the cheese

Spoon the salsa over the cheese.  Fold the tortilla over and place on a grill.

While the quesadilla is grilling, make a quick guacamole.  Smash one ripe avocado.

Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon over the avocado.

Add some chopped tomato and green onion, stir together.

Add some green tabasco sauce and salt to taste.

Remove the quesadilla from the grill and top with guacamole and sour cream.
