Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the grill to medium. 

Season the venison with salt and pepper and grill for 2 minutes per side. Remove from the grill to a cutting board and let rest. 

Heat a saute pan with 2 tablespoons of canola oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and red pepper and saute until transparent, about 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the cumin and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover 1 tortilla with cheese then evenly top with onions and red peppers. Slice the venison steak against the grain and on the bias. Cover the tortilla with the meat and squeeze 1/2 the lime over top the meat. Put the tortilla, ingredient side up, on stove top griddle pan or a large frying pan. Top with the remaining tortilla and cook until brown. Flip the quesadilla over and brown the other side. Cut into 4 large pieces or 6 small pieces and serve with the remaining 1/2 lime.

Cook's Note

If desired, for garnish, julienne romaine lettuce and top with store-bought jalapeno jelly. For the jelly, remove the contents from a 10-ounce jar of jelly and add it to a bowl. Whisk in 1/4 cup of homemade or store-bought chicken stock until just thin enough to spread.
