Steak And Chicken Quesadillas

We had a couple of chuck steaks and some smoked chicken in the fridge, so Bev suggested something simple for dinner - quesadillas. This was appealing since all we had to do was make up some pico de gallo, grill the steaks, reheat the chicken and assemble. Since we planned to use the homemade pimento cheese with chipotle in adobo for the cheese, I put some Tones Chipotle Seasoning on the beef. I put the beef over the hot part of the grill and the chicken on the cooler part.

and we had a couple of ears of corn, which we also grilled for adding to the mix.

So the quesadillas were pimento cheese, fresh chopped jalapenos, corn and meat on the inside, then on the grill for toasting.

Then topped with the pico de gallo and sour cream (which I forgot for mine) on the outside – I had one each chicken and beef.

They were absolutely delicious and we may have to keep this kicked up pimento cheese in the fridge full time - we're getting lots of use out of it.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. Hey Dude... as always, would happily eat at your grill anytime. It all looks terrific.

    Sorry I haven't been around as much lately as I would have liked. Connection issues (SLOOOOOOW) made viewing and commenting on as many blogs as I would have liked all but impossible. But all that is done with now, so i look forward to stealing all the ideas you post ;)

    Seriously, what a great blog you have. Hope you are having as much fun writing and cooking as we are reading about your little slice of heaven.

  2. Quesadillas are my most favorite food, so I know a good one when I see one. I see one.

  3. I love quesadillas and these look wonderful! You are indeed getting your moneys worth out of that cheese.

  4. Yum---looks wonderful. You two always fix things which I LOVE.... By the way, we had some of the best corn-on-the-cob I have ever eaten. My western Colorado friend told me to look for Olaithe Sweet Corn from Western Colorado. We found it --and it truly may be the best we've had.

    Have a great weekend.

  5. Looks absolutely fantastic Larry and Bev! You two eat like royalty. :)

  6. Beautiful dish, Larry! I love corn salsa, too. Nice post.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
