Steak & Poblano Quesadillas

People won't be able to tell the difference between restaurant quality quesadillas and our Steak Poblano Quesadillas. Melted mozzarella cheese, onions, peppers and sizzling steak are fused together between two heated flour tortillas.

  5. Slice steak. Heat 1 tortilla in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 1 minute. Place 1/4 of the sliced steak, then 1/4 of the onion mixture and 1/4 of the cheese on one half of the tortilla. Fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling.
  6. Cook over medium-high heat, pressing down with a spatula, until bottom is lightly browned. Carefully turn quesadilla and cook until lightly browned and cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Remove quesadilla and keep warm. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
