Easy Fajita Quesadillas

Here's an easy Saturday lunch idea for you using leftovers.  When there is not enough Fajita filling to serve the family again, make up a loaded Quesadilla using  Fajita filling!
Serve it for an appetizer or lunch for two.  
It's delicious.   It's hardly a recipe but sometimes all you need is an idea. 

  • leftover refried beans, warmed slightly in the microwave
  • leftover fajita filling, warmed slightly in the microwave (a combination of steak or chicken, peppers, jalapenos and onions)
  • 1 cup grated cheese (Monterey jack or cheddar)
  • 2 large tortilla shells
  • salsa
  • guacamole
  1.  Heat a large fry pan on medium heat.  Place one tortilla shell on the pan,  arrange fajita mixture over top, cover with second tortilla. 
  2. Heat until the underside is lightly browned. Flip over and heat until the cheese has melted.
  3. Cut into 8 pieces and serve with salsa and guacamole. 


  1. I have had my lunch but this is making me hungry again... Hugs, LJ

  2. We worked hard in the yard this morning, came in and I looked at this recipe. I had everything in the fridge and I made it. Thanks for lunch, Lovella! It was great! (great idea to put the refried beans in)
