Steak & Mushroom Quesadillas

I used to order something similar to this at ChiChi's - but when that restaurant left the area, my cravings for these yummy quesadillas didn't, so here is my take on this tasty Mexican classic! And, this is a graet way to use a small amount of meat.

1 T. olive oil
1/2 lb. beef flank steak, cut into short strips
1/2 lb. cremini or white button mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 T. Mexican Chili & Lime marinade
2 T. soy sauce
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. seasonal salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
6 flour tortillas
1/2 C. monterey jack or Mexican blend cheese, shredded

sour cream

In medium skillet, heat oil and add steak, mushrooms, marinade, soy, spices. Cook on medium-high for 5-7 minutes (this meat cooks very quickly.)

In griddle pan, layer the ingredients as follows. Repeat until all ingredients are used.

Tortilla, cheese, meat/mushroom mixture, cheese, tortilla.

Cook on medium 3-4 minutes per side or til tortilla is golden and cheese is melted.
Serves: 4-5
