Steak Quesadilla’s

Mexican just had to be on the menu last night, inspired by bloggers on the 24 community. I was not planning to, but had taken a tray of minute steak out to thaw yesterday morning. So I thought quesadilla’s it is!

I was wondering if steak quesadilla’s had been done before, and thanks to Google, found lots of recipes.


I fried the minute steak in white pepper and it literally took (yes, you guessed it) minutes. Just a small tip if anyone wants to use minute steak as a filling – do not cut up the steak in small bits before frying! Its much easier to do so after.

I smeared avo on one tortilla. For the avo – I mashed it and added some lemon juice, black pepper and salt. Added the steak bits and then added grated cheese over. Closed it with another tortilla and pan fried it until the cheese melted told together the tortillas.

Served with sour cream, guacamole and salsa.

Nachos

I used to order Nachos with pieces of chicken from Spur when I was living in Durban a few years ago. I don’t recall seeing them on the menu now but I’ve made them myself.

Homemade Nachos

What you need:

Bandito’s Nacho’s (I bought the jalapeno & cheese flavour)
Dorito’s (mild) salsa dip
Sour cream
Cheese – tussers and gouda
Avocado
lemon juice
salt
cubed chicken fillet

Cubed chicken
I braised onions in a frying pan and added spices (chilli powder, dhania & jeera) threw in the chicken cubes and sprinkled garlic flakes over it.

Guacamole
I mashed avo and added some lemon juice and sprinkled salt.

Nachos
Using an oven proof dish, I layered the nachos with the chicken and cheese until everything fit into the dish. I baked it in the oven on 150ÂșC until the cheese melted.

Once that was out, I spread the salsa dip over the top and added sour cream and guacamole over it, next to each other (refer to pic).

My husband really enjoyed it!
