Philly Cheese Steak Quesadilla

Philly Cheese Steak lovers will go crazy over this quesadilla!

I’m craving this quesadilla all over again! If you love Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches…you will LOVE this quesadilla! It’s the melted cheese, tender crisp veggies and savory roast beef that make it so yummy!

Now that it’s just Justin and I here for lunch it’s really quite boring. I keep telling myself that I will start making salad, or sliced apples or a healthy smoothie for lunch. I could save most of my daily calories for dinner. For some reason I always concoct things in my mind like this yummy quesadilla to make. Then I just gotta try it. Besides I know one my kids wouldn’t want to eat it because it has peppers and onions. So we’ve gotta eat it for lunch. Bye bye saved calories! Oh well, it was worth it. Besides I went for a bike ride today so I think I earned a few extra calories anyway!

Sauteed onions and peppers

Slice some peppers (I only had green but other colors would be pretty) and onions. Saute them in butter over medium-high heat for a few minutes. Only until they are crisp tender. Once they are done remove from heat and set aside.
Cheese Quesadilla

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Melt butter in skillet. Place tortilla shell on butter. Sprinkle grated cheese over shell.

Beef Quesadilla

Add sliced deli roast beef.

Cheesy Beef Quesadilla

Another layer of cheese. Just a little, it melts and holds everything together!

Philly Cheese Steak Quesadilla

Sprinkle peppers and onions onto second cheese layer.

Quick Philly Cheese Steak Quesadilla!

More cheese. Remember it holds everything together. Besides this is Swiss and the first layer was cheddar. The second layer was pepper jack.

Put a second tortilla on top of the whole thing. Watch close. When the first tortilla is golden brown, carefully flip it over. When the second layer is golden, the insides should be all melted and yummy. Remove from the heat.

Scrumptious quesadilla couldn't be easier! Or yummier!

Let the whole thing set for a minute. Then cut into wedges.

Mouthwatering! Makes a perfect quick lunch!I’m still thinking to heck with the healthy smoothie for lunch tomorrow. I’m having this again! It was seriously one of the best quesadillas I have ever had! I’m pretty sure I’m addicted!

    I have left over roast beef simmering in the crock pot right now, and I was going to Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches on hogie buns for dinner, but will use flour shells instead.

  2. Found this via pinterest and cant’ wait to make it! YUMMY! Drooling on the keyboard right now. Off to check out all your great recipes, glad i found your blog.

  3. Yum! I love loaded quesadillas – would love a chicken version of this one too!!

  4. Charmayne says:

    I added portabella mushrooms and used mozarella instead of swiss…sooooooo good! Thanks!!

  5. Ahhh! Peppers do not belong on a cheesteak. Maybe that’s how some people make them, but not at all how it’s done here in Philly.

  6. Love your recipe’s! Can’t wait to try them!

  11. My husband and I love your Philly Cheese Steak Quesadilla!! I have made it twice in the last month. It is also wonderful warmed over the next day! Thanks for sharing!

  12. The blog pulls through again…I couldn’t decide what to do with my left over steak until I saw this. Thanks for the idea!!

  13. It looks pretty yummy!!!! And all the recipe, it’s such a discover this site!

  14. These made for a very tasty dinner. I omitted the green peppers and used provolone and sharp cheddar cheeses. My family loved them! Thanks so much.

  15. These are NOT Philly cheese steak quesadillas. They might be good, but they are not Philly cheese steak quesadillas at all. I live in Philly and there are uncountable corner shops that sell cheesesteak quesadillas. First of all you never put cheddar, pepper jack or swiss on a cheese steak, EVER. It’s provolone, whiz or american only. 2nd of all there isn’t a philly cheesesteak in this city that uses Deli roast beef. It’s always sliced ribeye steak, hence the name cheese steak not cheese roast beef….

    • I have never been to Philly, so I’m sure I have never had an authentic Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. Since I live a million, okay not really a million but lots, of miles from the nearest grocery store I have learned to substitute ingredients for what I have on hand. So yes, I used Swiss cheese instead of Provolone, because that’s what I had on hand. I’m sure you know that changing the type of cheese will alter the flavor but not the overall success of the recipe. If you have provolone, GREAT! It would taste amazing. I think quesadillas should be quick and easy, that’s the kind of meals my life requires, and that’s why I used deli roast beef. Don’t get me wrong, I raise beef and would love to eat steak everyday of the week. Roast beef and steak are actually similar types of meat, just cut differently. Yes, steak would be amazing, but you can’t beat how easy and quick deli roast beef is! Maybe I will make another version of this quesadilla that’s a little more authentic. Whatever you choose to call these,they still taste amazing!

      • What an amazingly brilliant answer to that rude comment.. Bravo. These are on my list for next week. Thanks for sharing, I found this on Pinterest tonite.

        • Thanks for the kind words. I try to be positive regardless of the crazy comments I get! I hope you enjoyed these, I could seriously eat them my whole life and never get tired of them! So yummy!

  16. I’m going to make these tonight. Do you recommend any type of sauce that might taste good with these?… maybe ranch dressing? I’m a sauce dipper! lol.
