By Rocco Loosbrock

Recently I had a chance to chat with the American Meat Institute!  Wow, people like us who think about beef and pork meat all day long! The AMI is a national trade association representing companies that process 95 meat and poultry in the United States.  The AMI Spends a lot of time thinking about how to showcase what the love Meat.  They have shared with us their recipe Roast Beef Quesadillas which I think would make a great Super Bowl Snack this Sunday!


Roast Beef Quesadillas

2 teaspoons canola oil

1 cup chopped onions

1 large fresh jalapeno, seeded and minced

2 cups diced cooked/leftover medium-rare roast beef with any juices

½ cup thick or chunky salsa

¼ teaspoon salt

Vegetable cooking spray

4 (10-inch) soft flour tortillas or wraps, (Mexican flavor preferred)

1 cup shredded Mexican cheeses blend

½ cup fresh cilantro leaves

Extra salsa, if desired


1. Over medium heat, in a medium-size skillet, heat oil until hot. Add onions and jalapeno. Sauté until onions are tender. Stir in beef and stir-fry until beef is warm. Stir in salsa and salt and heat briefly. Remove from heat.


2. For each quesadilla: Over medium heat, lightly spray an 11-inch to 12-inch skillet with cooking spray, place one tortilla in skillet and heat for 20 seconds. Turn over and sprinkle warm side with ¼ cup cheese. Place cup of beef mixture and 1 heaping tablespoon cilantro evenly on one-half of tortilla.
