Steak Quesadillas

Quick and  easy Mexican steak quesadillas! This is a great recipe to use up leftover steak or make an easy weeknight meal.
Hello, friends. I hope you are all recovering from your yearly turkey overdose. If you are anything like me, you are probably vowing not to cook anything more complicated than frozen pizza for dinner for the foreseeable future. This is why I am bringing you these super easy and delicious steak quesadillas.
First, fry up your steak until it's nice and brown with some peppers and onions. You can even fry up a big batch and store it in your refrigerator to make quesadillas (or nachos!) throughout the week! 
Next, add a ton of cheese. I'm talking a literal ton. That's 2000 pounds, people. 
To me one of the secrets to a great quesadilla is really buttering the tortilla well before you fry it. I said it was easy, not health food.

Once they are fried up, dinner is served. So easy. Just throw some pico de gaillo on top and you're good to go.

Now, since we were ridiculously on top of things this year and got our Christmas tree last Saturday (which we cut down ourselves in the mountains in traditional Wyoming fashion), I am already totally into the Christmas spirit and ready to bake all kind of festive goodies for you all this week. So, send me all your ideas for recipes you want me to post this month!
