Ingredients (makes 2-4 quesadillas)tri tip recipe

1 lb tri tip, seasoned as preferred

1 green pepper, sliced

1 red pepper, sliced

1/2 yellow onion, sliced

Mexican cheese sauce (we used Tostito’s “Queso Blanco Dip” in our video – one spoonful per quesadilla.  Although the taste was amazing, this is an optional ingredient).

2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Flour tortillas (large)



1)  Cook up your tri tip in whatever method you choose – whether on the grill or in the smoker!

3)  After removing the tri tip and letting it rest for 10 minutes, cut it into bite-sized strips.

4)  Now it is time to assemble your quesadilla.  Lay your tortilla open on a cutting board and spread some Mexican cheese sauce over the entire tortilla – just give it a thin coat.  Put in your peppers and onions, followed by the sliced tri tip and grated cheese.  Fold it in half.

5)  Heat your grill to 300°F and lay some non-stick foil over the flame.  Place the folded quesadilla on the foil and cook for 4-6 minutes.

6)  Flip the quesadilla over and add shredded cheese on the top.  If you have any of the tri tip recipepeppers and onions left over, put those on top as well.  Cook for 2-4 minutes (until the cheese is melted).

7)  After removing it from the grill, cut the quesadilla into 3 – 4 slices.  Serve with sour cream, guacamole and/or salsa.

Another amazing tri tip recipe!  ENJOY!
