Carne Quesadillas


1 teaspoon olive oil
1 large yellow onion, sliced into ⅓” thick rounds
1 package Carne Asada Autentica (from Trader Joe’s)
1 package super size corn tortillas, I use 6 tortillas
1 pound Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
1 package Villagio Marzana tomatoes (Trader Joe’s), diced (or Roma)
1 cup recipe black beans (or use a can, rinsed and drained), heated
¼ cup chopped cilantro
1 can (7 oz) chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, heated
pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 350°F.
Preheat a grill pan over medium heat.
Brush the onion slices with oil and grill over medium heat, until the onions soften and get grill marks, about 6 minutes on each side.
Turn the grill pan heat up to medium high. Take some slices of carne asada and place them on the grill pan. Cook about 1 minute per side. The smaller pieces in the package can be turned over almost immediately and they are done within a minute. Let the meat sit for a few minutes before slicing it.
Place the 6 corn tortillas on a couple cookie sheets and divide the Monterey Jack cheese among them. Place in the oven and cook for 8-10 minutes. The cheese should be completely melted. Take the cookie sheets out of the oven and place the carne asada, grilled onions, tomatoes, black beans, cilantro, and drizzle with a little adobo sauce on top. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and enjoy!
