Today’s Menu: Beef Quesadillas w/ Refried Beans

 

Beef Quesadillas w Refried Beans 011

Cool, cloudy and showers around here today. After breakfast I went to Kroger for a few items and then ran a couple of errands for Mom. Back home all caught up with everything and gave me a chance to lay down for a while, I’ve been dealing with a sinus headache the last couple of days or so. For dinner tonight I prepared Beef Quesadillas w/ Refried Beans.

I came across the John Soules Foods Beef Fajitas at Walmart the other day and thought I would give it a try. It comes in a 2 serving package. To prepare it by package instructions; heat to 160f internal temperature. Do not overheat. Product is already fully cooked. Sizzle in skillet: 4-5 minutes (recommended) – place thawed fajita meat into skillet over medium high heat. (Spraying skillet with a non-stick cooking spray is optional.) Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, turning several times. And done! You can also prepare it by baking it and by microwave.

 

 

 

The Beef is well seasoned and good grilled flavor. I think it would work great in a stir-fry also. Good item to have in the fridge, easy to prepare and excellent flavor. They have several varieties of Beef and Chicken products. I’ll try the Chicken soon!

To go with Beef for the Quesadilla toppings I had 2 different types of Cheese; Sargento Reduced Fat Colby-Jack Shredded Cheese and Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. To prepare it I broke out my new Quesadilla Maker. I had bought it a few weeks ago and had not used until now. Just add 1 Tortilla, I used Mission Flour Soft Tortillas, on top of that add your Beef and sprinkle with Cheese. Add the second Tortilla on top and shut the lid, and cook. Just let it cook for 4-5 minutes and done. The Quesadilla maker automatically slices the Quesadilla, it has ridges in it that will slice the Quesadilla for you. It’s a breeze to clean up with its nonstick plates, good item to have.

Had a side of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream and Old El Paso Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce (for dipping). Sprinkled chopped Cilatro and Smoked Paprika on top. The Quesadillas came out perfect! Golden Brown with the melted Cheese on top of the Beef. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
