  • Fat: 7g

Ingredients:

  • 85g Chuck Steak (raw), chopped
  • 30g Red Onion, sliced
  • 60g Portobello Mushrooms, sliced
  • 30g Sweet Roasted Red Pepper, sliced
  • 15g Smoked Sun-Dried Tomatoes (Julienne Cut- NOT in oil)
  • 1 Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Cheese
  • 1 whole wheat Mission brand tortilla (Soft taco flour tortilla, ‘peptio style’)**
  • 2Tbs Fresh Mild Salsa for topping
  • Black Pepper & Pink Salt

Directions:

  • Season the steak with with black pepper and pink salt. Cook to desired well-ness over medium heat in a skillet with a non-stick cooking spray. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Sauté the vegetables over medium-high heat with the non-stick cooking spray, salt and pepper until onions are soft. You may need to add water to prevent sticking. Add the steak to this mixture for a minute or so before setting aside. Be careful to not overcook the steak.
  • To prepare the quesadilla you will need to use a clean skillet. Allow the skillet to become very hot over medium-low heat before greasing with non-stick cooking spray. Place tortilla in the skillet and spray lightly with the cooking spray and dust with salt & pepper. Once the tortilla starts to bubble- flip it using a spatula.
  • Spread the swiss cheese evenly across the entire tortilla using the back of a spoon. After the cheese begins to melt add the filling to ONE SIDE of the tortilla. Fold the tortilla in half using a spatula and gently press down. After about a minute, flip to cook the other side. You should have a lightly toasted quesadilla.
  • Remove from heat and let cool 1-2 minutes before cutting in half. You may eat this alone or top with salsa. See additional topping options below.
