Skirt Steak Quesadillas

  • 1
    Fire up the grill.
  • 2
    Mix together in a large bowl or zip lock bag cilantro, oregano, cumin, ancho chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper blend, oil and lime juice.
  • 3
    Add skirt steak to spice mixture and mix thoroughly so the beef is coated evenly with spices. Set aside, and let marinate for 30 minutes.
  • 4
    While beef is marinating, heat a cast iron pan over medium heat. Add 2 Tbs of canola oil and add in onions and Anaheim peppers.
  • 5
    Saute until onions and peppers are soft and slightly browned on the edges, and season with 1/2 tsp of kosher salt. Set aside.
  • 6
    When the grill is hot, place skirt steak on and grill on both sides for 3-4 minutes.
  • 7
    Remove from grill, and let rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
  • 8
    After steak has rested, you will need to cut it in two or three pieces, depending on the length. Then, cut against the grain in 1/2 inch slices.
  • 9
    Add skirt steak to onion and peppers.
  • 10
    Add in shredded cheese and scallions, and mix thoroughly.
  • 11
    Place one flour tortilla on a hot cast iron pan and top with a quarter of the mixture and a second tortilla. Flip and crisp the other tortilla to finish. Repeat three more times with other tortillas.
  • 12
    Cut and serve.

CHEF'S TIP: If you do not have a grill, you can sear the skirt steak in a cast iron pan over medium high heat for 3 minutes on each side. If you can’t find Oaxaca cheese in your grocery store, a Mexican cheese blend will work great too. Serve quesadillas with an avocado, corn and tomato salad.
