Cheddar Steak Quesadilla

One of my guilty pleasures is Taco Bell’s steak quesadilla.

I love it. I don’t care if it’s not real meat and how it has a thousand calories. I just love it.

But since it’s horrible for my diet, I decided to make a lighter version to satisfy my cravings.

There’s 3 reasons why I love their steak quesadillas:

1) Steak. Love it. Can eat it every day and could never be a vegetarian.

2) Cheese. Melted. Gloriuos cheese.

3) Their mild sauce. Perfect in this. Just perfect!

So for my steak quesadillas I used lean beef filet, low-fat cheddar and for the sauce a simple fry sauce (lite mayo+ketchup+a pinch of cayenne) and well it turned out ahhmazing! For the tortillas I found 100 calories whole wheat tortillas in the store and they worked and tasted great!

So if you’re craving some quesadillas but don’t want to ruin your diet, go ahead and make these I promise they’re just as good!

And did I mention they take 20mins to make? Yep, do it.

Roasted Prosciutto Wrapped Green Bean Bundles

Once again, with the prosciutto.

I.just.can’t.help.it

As you might very well know by now, our household of two is not big on vegetables.

Like we eat them because we have to..In other words I shove them in my husband’s face while screaming “Eat it, it’s good for you!” yes we are definitely not veggie lovers!

Yet, green beans is one vegetable we both don’t mind eating and actually quite like it.

Especially when is roasted….

Yum! And these little bundles are totally fab! You put them together in no time and then roast them in the oven for 20mins.

What a great side dish! And you should definitely make them for your next get together, people will go nuts! They are soo adorable :)

Besides the ingredient list is very short and sweet. Green beans, Prosciutto, sea salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. That’s it! :)

Soon I’ll be also sharing the chicken recipe I served with the green beans. But today it’s all about green beans. And prosciutto.
