The Avocado Zest is delicious. It has a fresh, lemon taste.  I drizzle it on my salads. I recommend it to anyone who wants a high quality oil with a hint of citrus for salads and fish.

Steak Quesadilla with Avocado Ranch Sauce

If you are a true Canadian, you’ve BBQ’d with mittens on. Winter is in full force here and that never stopped any of us from warming up the BBQ for some grilling!

Today in the kitchen we made steak quesadillas with avocado ranch sauce. This is a great recipe to make on a winter afternoon with friends!

Ingredients:

Avocado Ranch Sauce

  • 1 ripe medium avocado
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tbsp Olivado Oil Oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy, scraping down the sides occasionally when needed.

Steak Quesadillas

  • One large beef steak of your choice (or leftover steak works just as well)
  • 1 large green pepper diced
  • 2/3 cup red onion
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 6 tortillas
  • Olivado Avocado Oil to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On stove top, heat 1 tbsp of Olivado Avocado Oil in a pan. Sauté red onions and green peppers for 5 mins. Set aside. Rub Olivado Avocado Oil onto steak and season to taste. BBQ steak to desired taste (we prefer medium rare). Slice steak into strips.

Place 2 tortilla onto gressed backing sheet. Top with shredded cheese, green peppers, onions and steak. Sprinkle with a little extra cheese to ensure the top tortilla sticks. Place tortilla over top of the mixture and bake for 10 mins. Flip and bake for an additional 10 mins.

Be sure to cool the dish slightly and cut into slices. Serve with salsa, sour cream and avocado ranch!
