Yesterday’s Quesadilla

September 4, 2008 at 8:42 pm 2 comments

There was a ton of leftover roast beef left from last nights dinner. Last year at this time, I was trying to be the “perfect wife” by making dinner every single night. And by making dinner I mean something completely different from the night before. Monday – ravioli, Tuesday – tacos, Wednesday – paninis, Thursday – pasta with tomatoes and basil… This method ended up wasting food and money, not to mention helped us both put on a few pounds! This September I’ve decided to be the “resourceful wife” by using leftovers in a new, exciting way.

4 tortillas, soft taco size, sprayed with olive oil (if you haven’t tried the misto, do!)
About 1 cup leftover roast beef, shredded
1 red bell pepper, sliced in strips
1/2 large yellow onion, sliced
cheddar cheese, shredded
2-4 tablespoons sour cream (it’s not a quesadilla without it!)
salsa to taste
olive oil

Coat the bottom of a medium saute pan with olive oil. Heat until it’s good and hot and add the pepper and onions. Let cook for about 10-15 minutes, until a bit charred and caramelized. Add the roast beef until heated through.

Spray one side of the tortillas with olive oil (brushing some oil on would work too). Get a separate pan hot, and lay one tortilla in it, oil side down. Put 1/2 the beef mixture on the tortilla and spread out evenly. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. With the remaining tortilla, spread on about 1 TB of sour cream. and place on top of the beef mixture. Cook for about 2 minutes and flip.

Serve with salsa and guacamole if you please!

    Glad you joined the Daring Bakers. I really had fun with it last month. Yes, I made the coffee cake too. My husband LOVED it. I added a little almond extract to the glaze on top – it was good. Will definitely make it again.
