Ingredients

1 pound ham steak (sliced)
kosher salt
black pepper
12 flour tortillas (8-inch)
15 ounces refried black beans (or refried pinto beans, warmed)
1/4 cup green chile (roasted, chopped)
2 cups salsa (any variety you prefer)
1 cup monterey jack (shredded)

Directions

1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Season the ham steak with salt and freshly ground pepper.
2Place the seasoned ham steak on a parchment lined baking sheet and transfer to the preheated oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes until the internal temperature is 140 degrees F. Halfway through the cooking time, flip the ham steak over, and continue to cook until done.
3Allow the ham steak to rest loosely covered with foil, for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Cut the ham into small 1/2-inch cubes and set aside.
4Preheat broiler. Put tortillas in single layer on baking sheet. Brush with oil. Broil until toasted, about 3 minutes. Turn and set aside.
5Spread a thin layer of the warmed beans on one of the tortillas. Top with a few tablespoons of shredded cheese and a sprinkle of cubed ham steak and some of the green chilies. Repeat process one more time and then top with another tortilla so there are 3 tortillas per stack, with the top tortilla plain. Repeat this process with the remaining tortillas and ingredients.
6Once you have 4 stacks of quesadillas, drizzle salsa over each of the stacks and sprinkle with a bit of cheese. Place the quesadillas back into the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese. Then, cut into 4 wedges. Garnish as desired.
