Shredded Beef Quesadilla

Utilizing Leftovers the best we can!


Last night I made shredded beef for our arepas and had a bunch leftover (on purpose, of course!). After my 6 mile run, I needed more fuel to keep going and needed something quick and easy. Thus, the 5 minute quesadilla! I ate half just after my run and the other an hour or so later.

Ingredients:

1 burrito sized tortilla (I used La Tortilla Factory Multigrain)
~2 oz of shredded beef
A soft Mexican Cheese or Soy substitute (I used Queso Fresco since I already had some shredded from last night)
Diced tomato (optional)
Guacamole or Avocado spread (optional, I used Simply Avo since we had some in the fridge)

Assemble the quesadilla, beef on bottom, followed by tomatoes and cheese)

Fold over and grill quesadilla, see my breakfast quesadilla for illustration.

Slice and top with guac if desired!
