2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 ¼ lbs skirt steak

12 corn tortillas, 6 inch diameter

Put the steak on a cutting board. Leave it for 5 minutes then slice it into thin strips.
Brush 4 tortillas with oil and place them oil side down on 2 baking sheets. Spread 1 tablespoon of salsa and ¼ cup of cheese on each tortilla. Top them with a second tortilla. Spread each which ¼ of the steak, ¼ cup of cheese and a tablespoon of salsa. Press the third set of tortillas on to the stack. Brush the tops with oil.
Bake the steak quesadillas for 10 minutes.
Turn them with a metal spatula and bake until they are golden and hot through.
This will take another 10 minutes. Transfer the quesadillas to serving plates and cut them into wedges.
Serve with the rest of the salsa.
