Steak Fajita Quesadilla

I decided to combine two of my sister's favorite dishes: steak fajitas and quesadillas. Oh, this dish was so good. What a great combination. The cheese melted over the steak, onions, and green peppers. My youngest daughter ate her whole quesadilla. Normally, she doesn't eat her whole quesadilla. The steak was tender. The dish was cheesy. Supper was fast. I know my sister will be making this dish real soon.
Steak Fajita Quesadilla
2 tsp vegetable oil, plus additional for the quesadilla
1 green pepper, cut into long thin strips
1 large onion , cut into long thin strips
1 lb. top sirloin steak
4 tsp butter
1 cup Mexican cheese blend
8 large flour tortillas

  1. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium high heat.
  2. Add the green pepper and onion. Stir occasionally. Cook for about 8 minutes.
  3. Place the cooked onion and green peppers onto a plate. Set aside.
  4. Add the steak to the pan. Saute for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the steak is cooked to the desired doneness. Set aside onto the plate with the green pepper and onion.
  5. Reduce the heat to medium.
