Grass Fed Beef Quesadilla

 In Blog

Meat has gotten quite a bad rap in the last few decades. Beef is not your enemy – quite the opposite actually. But a diet high in low quality meats along with fiber that has gone MIA from your plate can cause some issues in terms of long term health. This is where that whole “meat is bad” issue comes from.

Enter the case for grass fed beef! Grass fed, free range meats are not only a great dietary source of protein but can also lead to optimal health. Assuming that the animal is free to roam the pasture and munch on grass, you’ll be getting a big dose of B vitamins along with Omega-3 fats. That’s right, while all those health pundits are touting the healthy fats in fish, they tend to neglect the fact that grass fed beef is a great source of all those fats that our body needs

Give this quesadilla a try. It contains a bit of cheese as a treat but also has a good serving of fiber per slice. Enjoy!

Ingredients

Amount Item
2 Brown Rice Tortillas
3 ounces Grass Fed Ground Sirloin
1 ounce Raw cheese
1 Avocado
1 teaspoon Pink sea salt
1 teaspoon True Lime (or 2 lime wedges)
½ Small organic onion
½ Small organic tomato
2 Leafs of organic romaine lettuce

 

Optional spices for beef: pink sea salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil

 

Steps

Number Step
1 Mix your spices into the beef and cook on a low heat until the meat is lightly brown
2 Spray a medium size skillet with some coconut cooking spray and put it on a medium heat*
3 Lay out one tortilla and spread 3 ounces of beef over the entire wrap.
4 Use a cheese grater to shred your ounce, or cut it with a knife into small chunks. Place cheese randomly with the beef
5 Place other tortilla on top of beef and cheese; cook on each side for 4-6 minutes on each side. If need be, you may want to place a heavy skillet on top of the tortilla to press it down
6 While tortilla is cooking, cut the avocado and scoop it out of the shell. Mash the avocado in a bowl until there are no more chunks
7 Dice onion and tomato. Mix veggies, salt, and lime into the avocado to make a guacamole
8 Once you’ve cooked tortilla on both sides, cut into six pieces with a pizza cutter and spread guac onto each slice. Rip up lettuce and spread over the guac

 

*Instead of a skillet, you can buy a quesadilla maker for about twenty bucks
