How to Make Steak Quesadillas


Do you know how to make steak quesadillas? The whole family will love this SIMPLE steak quesadillas recipe that’s also loaded with veggies!


  • 2 medium bell peppers
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 3/4 lbs. shaved beef steak
  • 1 tsp. sea salt, divided
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 6 oz. shredded cheese, Mexican blend or cheddar
  • 8 flour tortillas


  1. Prepare ingredients: Dice peppers and onion. Season steak with 1/2 teaspoon of the sea salt and sprinkle with garlic powder and cumin.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Add peppers and onion to pan and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5-7 minutes, until vegetables have softened. Set aside and wipe out pan with paper towel.
  3. Add remaining 1 teaspoon of olive oil to pan and when hot, add steak to pan. Cook until desired doneness, which will depend on cut of steak. I cooked my shaved beef steak for about 2 minutes per side. Set aside and let rest for 5 minutes. 
  4. Assemble quesadillas. In large skillet over medium heat, layer in the following order: bottom tortilla, 1/3 cup shredded cheese, 2/3 cup pepper mixture, 1/2 cup steak, 1/3 cup shredded cheese, and top tortilla.
  5. Cook for about 2-3 minutes, and when cheese starts to melt, carefully flip over with large flipper and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Repeat with remaining 3 quesadillas.
  6. Cut into wedges and serve with toppings. (See topping ideas in post or below)


  • Topping ideas: shredded lettuce, sliced grape tomatoes, avocado, salsa, sour cream, hot sauce
