Steak Quesadillas

Quesadillas make a quick and versatile meal. Here, flour tortillas are filled with cheese, chopped scallions, and cooked steak, but you can fill yours with your choice of cooked vegetables, cooked meat, beans, and cheese. Salsa, guacamole, and sour cream always make good quesadilla fillings.
