Are you looking for an easy, filling, 30 minutes or less recipe for dinner? Simple prep and not a lot of clean up? Well, today I gotcha covered! Because I needed a nice, easy breezy meal that would keep me full, keep the kitchen decent, and not take me forever to make. And guess what? Success!!! Meet these 30 Minute Loaded Steak Quesadillas.
Loaded you ask? Not only are these steak quesadillas layered with a pound of top sirloin, there's also black beans, fire roasted corn, cherry tomatoes, avocado, and of course, two layers of cheese. This amount of goodness brings the basic cheese quesadilla up a bit higher in the world wouldn't you agree? Like "Instead of as a snack...I'm going to make steak quesadillas for DINNER!" level.
Speaking of steak, I went a crazy easy route. No marinating, no slow cooking, nothing. A regular sirloin, coated in spices (mexican spice blend for the win!) and quickly seared in a pan, 3 minutes max on each side. Thinly slice against the grain and that's it! Layer them in your quesadilla and throw the whole thing in the oven.
Not into rare steak? Noooo worries! The steak is only quickly seared on the stove because it'll cook more in the oven, closer to the medium rare and medium range.
Ok so. Wednesday night 30 Minute Loaded Steak Quesadillas anyone?? Serve with a dollop of sour cream, your favorite salsa and guac, and an on the rocks margarita!Print
