Philly Cheesesteak Quesadillas

Yum
You can do so much with quesadillas!

You can serve them the normal way with chicken and vegetables, beef and vegetables or just plain cheese.  Pretty much those Mexican type flavors, but how about something that tastes just like what Philadelphia is known for...a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich in QUESADILLA form!!!

YUM!

Philly Cheesesteak Quesadilla
 You will love the crispy veggies, melted cheese with the roast beef and the fact that it will take you 15 minutes!

Here's what you need: 
2 flour tortillas per person
1/4 cup green pepper, sliced
1/4 cup frozen onions
2 Tbsp butter
3 slices deli roast beef lunch meat
cheddar cheese, shredded
pepper jack cheese, shredded
Swiss cheese, shredded

First, you need to saute the green pepper and the onions in 2 Tbsp butter.  Saute for about 5 minutes. Set aside.  Meanwhile, shred all your cheeses if you haven't yet, mix them together.  Now you will make your quesadilla.  On one flour tortilla add a bit of the cheese.  Then add the roast beef and the green pepper/onion mixture.  Add on some more cheese.  Then top with the other flour tortilla.  The cheese is like the glue to hold everything together so add enough cheese to do that.  Place the quesadilla on a heated fry pan.  No oil or butter necessary!  Heat the quesadilla while pressing down on the top.  Flip over after a couple of minutes and then repeat the process on the other side.  Remove from heat when slightly browned and cheese has melted.  Slice and serve!

I think this has become my favorite way to serve quesadillas!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
