Cheese Steak Quesadillas

I love a good Philly Cheesesteak. The ooey gooey cheese, pepper and onions and steak. Really what’s not to love! You can also switch it up and use chicken instead of steak. This Cheese Steak Quesadillas recipe is easy and delicious!

I filed this in the Lunch category since it’s easy to cut the recipe down but it also would work great for dinner with a salad as a side.

Hope you enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I had some frozen, cooked chicken already in my freezer so I switched up the steak for chicken for an easy lunch meal. I thawed the chicken by putting it in the skillet with the onions and peppers while they were cooking. 

You can leave out some of the vegetables or add mushrooms - change it to suit your tastes!

I sometimes put ranch dressing on my cheese steak. So I got a little ramekin, added some ranch dressing and dipped my quesadilla in it. Yum!
