4 (12-inch) flour tortillas

1/2 cup grated Cheddar, plus 1/4 cup

8 ounces sirloin steak, grilled to desired doneness and thinly sliced

1 to 2 tablespoons minced jalapeno

1/4 cup salsa, plus more for serving

Vegetable oil, for cooking

Cilantro sprigs, for garnish


  1. Lay out 2 of the flour tortillas on a flat surface. Top with 1/2 cup of the Cheddar, spreading evenly over the tortillas. Divide the steak among the tortillas and sprinkle with the desired amount of jalapeno. Top with salsa and remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Top with remaining tortillas and press to seal.
  2. Heat a large saute pan over high heat. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan and lower the heat to medium. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with the other quesadilla.
  3. Let cool for 5 minutes. Slice into 8 or 10 pieces. Garnish with salsa and cilantro sprigs.
