Ingredients: 

  • Skirt Steak (diced into 1 inch pieces)
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Red Bell Pepper (Diced)
  • Yellow Onion (Diced)
  • Salsa
  • Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
  • Monterey Jack Cheese (shredded)
  • Flour Tortillas burrito size

How to Make Steak Fajitas Quesadillas: 

  • Step 1 – Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Step 2 – Place the steak on the skillet in an even layer. Season it with the taco seasoning. Sauté the steak for 1-2 minutes per side until it’s browned slightly. We also like to add in some salt and pepper.
  • Step 3 – Then add in the red bell pepper and onions and sauté them with the steak for 5-7 minutes until the steak is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
  • Step 4 – Then top the steak and vegetables with salsa and toss to thoroughly coat the mixture with the salsa. Sauté for a few minutes to combine the flavors. Then remove the mixture from the heat.
  • Step 5 – Heat a griddle over medium high heat or you can heat a cast iron skillet.
  • Step 6 – Place the tortillas on the griddle or skillet.  Top each tortilla with a small amount of each cheese, then layer the steak and vegetables on top and then add more cheese. Carefully fold each tortilla in half making a half moon shape.
  • Step 7 – Cook until one side of the tortilla is golden brown (1-2 minutes). Flip the quesadilla and then cook until the other side is golden brown as well (1-2 minutes). Watch them closely as they brown quickly and cheese is melted.
  • Step 8 – Remove the quesadillas onto a cutting board. Slice them and they are ready to serve and enjoy!

Tips for Steak Quesadillas:

  • Storing Leftovers – Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.  
  • Preheat Skillet – Make sure to preheat the griddle to medium high heat to give the quesadilla a crispy texture. We used vegetable oil but any high smoke point oil will work. You can also use olive oil.
  • Cooking Steak Strips – Make sure to slice the steak about the same size so that it cooks in about the same time. I like to make them thin strips.
  • Taco Seasoning – You can use homemade taco seasoning or store bought taco seasoning. Chili powder is included in the taco seasoning blend, but you can always add in more.
  • Shredded Cheese – We recommend shredded the cheese yourself instead of using pre-shredded cheese.

Recipe Variations:

  • Steak Variations – We used skirt steak for this recipe but you can also use flank steak if you prefer.  
  • Change the Vegetables – Feel free to use other vegetables such as spinach or green bell peppers if you prefer.
  • Cheese – You can easily use your favorite type of cheeses in this steak cheese quesadilla recipe. Use what you have. We like to use Monterrey jack cheese and Cheddar Cheese.
  • Dipping Sauces – Add your favorite dipping sauces. We like salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.

Can I use already Cooked Steak?

Yes, you can use leftover steak. This is the perfect meal to use leftover cooked steak. Quesadillas is always my go-to meal when I have leftover chicken or steak.

Just skip the steps in the recipe to cook the steak and onions and place your tortilla on the skillet. Heat the tortilla and top with cheese and steak to make a quick lunch or dinner.
