I quickly marinated a sirloin steak with 1/2 cup of Lawry’s Santa Fe Chili Marinade. It’s so flavorful, you only need 30 minutes… can even brush it on right before grilling if you don’t feel like waiting 30 minutes. Use a grill pan right on top of your stove so you don’t even have to walk outside to the grill. A quick 6 minutes each side of the steak then let that baby rest. Cut it into thin slices, grill your bell pepper and onions and you are ready to start your quesadilla.

How To Make Quesadillas


Place a buttered flour tortilla into a hot skillet. Top with cheese, your steak strips, grilled bell pepper and onions. Top with more cheese, another buttered tortilla and cook until golden brown on each side.


Cut each quesadilla in half and be prepared to start drooling. Minimal work in the kitchen gets you this flavor packed quick dinner or fun lunch. Enjoy!
