How to make steak quesadilla

In a bowl, combine soy sauce, garlic, lime juice, oil, oregano, cumin, and chipotle powder.

Add the steak to the soy sauce mixture to marinate. Cover the bowl and place it in the fridge for 1 hour at least.

Heat a skillet on medium-high flame and transfer the steak to the skillet discarding any remaining marinade.

Mark one tortilla with the creamy jalapeño sauce while the steak is cooking.

Cook the steak until soft, tender, and your desired texture is achieved. Then transfer it to a plate and keep it warm.

In another non-stick skillet, place the second tortilla and load it up with chihuahua cheese and cheddar cheese.

Cook over medium heat and when the cheese starts melting from edges, spread the steak over cheese and top with the first tortilla. Cook for a few minutes then flip over and cook on the other side until the cheese has melted and the tortilla is crispy.

Transfer the quesadilla to the cutting board and cut it into 4 or 6 wedges. Serve immediately and enjoy.
