Fajita Steak Quesadillas

I'm not sure if this counts as a recipe.  It's more of a way to use leftovers that seems completely obvious, but tastes amazingly delicious.  The problem with leftover fajita meat is invariably when you reheat it in the microwave, it ends up tasting dry.  So why not fix that by smoothering it with something that will keep it from drying out?  Of course, a quesadilla.

Fajita Steak Quesadillas

leftover fajita meat and red bell peppers
shredded cheese (cheddar, monterrey jack, colby or a mix)
leftover pico de gallo
large flour tortillas
olive oil
sour cream and guacamole for serving

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Brush a large tortilla with olive oil (this helps make it crispy, you can skip the oil if you prefer).  Place olive oil side down on a baking sheet.  Top with steak, bell peppers, and a little bit of pico.  Cover with a sprinkling of cheese.  Top with another tortilla and brush the tortilla with oil.
3. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and meat is warmed through.
4. Slice like a pizza and serve with sour cream and guacamole.
