Low Carb Steak Quesadillas


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 pound skirt steak or flank steak, diced into bite size pieces
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 8 6-inch LC Whole Wheat Tortilla Shells
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese (or more if you like it extra cheesy!)


  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the diced steak and seasonings to the hot skillet and toss to fully coat the steak.
  • Add the onion and green bell pepper to the skillet.
  • Cook until the steak is nicely browned and the vegetables are softened. Transfer to a plate or cutting board and wipe out your pan.
  • Add a little more olive oil to the pan and place one LC Tortilla Shell in the center. Top the tortilla with ¼ of the steak mixture and ¼ of the shredded cheese then place a second tortilla on top and gently press it down with a spatula.
  • Cook until the tortillas have browned and the cheese is melted inside (about 3-4 minutes per side). Repeat this same process with each quesadilla.
  • Slice each quesadilla into wedges and serve with your favorite low carb toppings.
  • Enjoy!
