Ingredients:

  • 1 lb sirloin steak, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup diced bell peppers (assorted colors)
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 low-carb tortillas (store-bought or homemade)
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin

Instructions:

  1. Cook the Steak:
    • In a skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of avocado oil.
    • Season the thinly sliced steak with chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.
    • Sear the steak for 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked to your desired doneness. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Sauté the Vegetables:
    • In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of avocado oil.
    • Sauté the diced bell peppers and red onion until they are slightly softened and have a vibrant color.
  3. Assemble the Quesadillas:
    • Place a low-carb tortilla on a clean surface.
    • Sprinkle a layer of shredded cheddar cheese on half of the tortilla.
    • Top with the cooked steak and sautéed vegetables.
    • Sprinkle another layer of cheese on top.
  4. Cook the Quesadillas:
    • Fold the tortilla in half to cover the filling, creating a half-moon shape.
    • Heat a clean skillet over medium heat and lightly grease it.
    • Cook the quesadilla on each side until the tortilla is crispy and the cheese is melted, about 2-3 minutes per side.

Note: You can also use a panini press or grill pan to achieve the perfect quesadilla texture.
