Seared Steak Quesadillas

Seared Steak Quesadillaswith Poblano Salsa and Chimichurri

In this elevated riff on a Mexican classic, Chef Elana's stuffing flour tortillas with seared steak, melty cheese, and chimichurri, a tangy Argentinian herb sauce. We're using cilantro, parsley, and a touch of Cholula to bring the heat, then baking the cheesy quesadillas in the oven to eliminate the much-dreaded flip in the pan. Accompanied by a warm poblano and tomato salsa, this is one seriously impressive twist.
