Instructions Checklist
  • For the Quesadillas: Heat oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Add protein starters and cook until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.

  • To the same pan, add onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes more. Add reserved protein starters back to the pan, add Worcestershire sauce, mix to combine, and set aside.

  • Wipe out the pan, coat with nonstick spray, and heat over medium heat. Add 1 tortilla to pan. Top half the tortilla with 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 of the cooked protein.

  • Top with pickle slices (if desired) and another 1/2 cup cheese. Fold in half and cook until cheese is melted and the quesadilla is golden brown on one side, about 2 minutes. Repeat with second tortilla and remaining ingredients.

  • For the Special Sauce: Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and season to taste.

  • Cut quesadillas into pieces and serve with lettuce, tomatoes, and sauce.
