Carne Asada Tacos

For these quesadillas, we start out by cooking a flavorful filet in a cast iron skillet. Salt, pepper and butter are all you need for an amazing steak. I like to char my peppers on the gas stove top while making the beef. If you don’t want to char your own, you can use oven roasted peppers or pick up a jar of peppers at the market. Up to you.

Then we grate the star of this quesadilla … our Cacique cheese before it’s time to pull it all together. It’s just a few simple ingredients but when put together there’s a whole lotta bang for your flavor buck.

I like to prep mine into soft taco form before putting them on the hot pan to grill up to a melty perfection. It makes the cooking process go a little faster for me, and the faster I get to eat those the better.

    Can we discuss my excitement right now?? I can never lay my hands on Cotija or Queso Fresco cheese. My grocers don’t have them AND my 3 day a week Farmers Market with an authentic Mexican food vendor sells all types of high-end European cheeses but no Mexican! I just used the location finder for Cacique and my local Walmart AND target both carry it…Huh! I don’t think to food shop there, but guess who’s making a trip! Your quesadillas looks yummalish! The meat is cooked perfectly! Yum!!
