Another simple yet tasty quesadilla (our favorite snack food) recipe.

1 small new york strip
1/3 cup salsa (your favorite)
1/4 cup terriyaki
2 green onions (diced)
1 jalapeno (diced)
3 tbsp cilantro (chopped)
4 (8 inch) flour tortillas
1/2 cup chipotle cheddar (grated)
3/4 cup sharp cheddar (grated)
fresh crack pepper

1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp buttermilk
2 tsp gold tequila
1/4 tbsp fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp fresh baby dill
1/4-1/2 tsp hot sauce to taste
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cumin
1/4-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/8-1/4 tsp liquid smoke (mesquite)
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)

Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl, cover and chill until ready to use.

In a seal able container combine steak, salsa, terriyaki and fresh crack pepper. Seal and place in refrigerator for at least 20 minutes (and preferably 12 hours) then remove and leave on counter for 10-15 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium high. Remove meat from container and grill each side 3-5 minutes over medium high heat or until done.

While grilling mix together cilantro, cheeses, jalapeno and green onion in a medium bowl.  Sit to side until ready to use.

Remove meat from grill and slice into 1/4 inch by 1 1/2 inch pieces.

Evenly spread 1/4 of cheese mixture over one half of a tortillas, then spread 1/4 of the steak pieces over the same half of a tortilla and fold tortilla to make quesadilla.  Repeat with the other three tortillas and remaining ingredients.

Place quesadillas into 10-12 inch skillet over medium high heat and cook both sides for a minute or two covered until the cheese is fully melted. Every now and then press down gently with a spatula to flatten. Once cooked move to plastic or glass cutting board and cut into 3-4 equal slices. Repeat until all are finished and serve on plates with our dip, salsa or sour cream.
