10 Minute Steak Quesadillas

September 12, 2009

I used up the leftover chili rubbed sirloin from the night before to make this tasty quesadilla for lunch the next day. I sliced the meat into thin slices and tossed it on the grill with some bell peppers and onions. This was a quick and simple lunch using leftovers and making a completely different meal than the night before. Making more portions is a great time saver as you can eat it the next day or use it for a different recipe. It’s interesting all the different meals you can create using leftovers. One of my favorite ways to use up leftovers is to toss it all into a salad. Take chili for example, you can top it on a sweet potato for a comforting warm meal, or put it in between two pieces of bread for a Sloppy Joe, or even put it on a bed of spinach. It all works and is a great way to reuse meals in a different way. If I had more of this steak, I would have probably made a steak salad with a sweet and spicy Thai dressing topped with crushed salted peanuts. Fire up your grill and make these quick homemade quesadillas!
