This "sandwich" came about one day when I was craving a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich but did not have everything to make a traditional one, so I used what I had on hand. This is a very versatile little sandwich as you can change it up according to what you have on hand. It is great with leftover fajita veggies. Give it a try I know you'll just love it as much as I do!

How to Make Tijuana Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich


  • 1Sauté the mushroom in a small pan with 1/2 teaspoon butter until just browned and salt and pepper to taste.
  • 2Slice or shred your beef into bite size pieces and grill/heat in a pan over medium heat until just heated through and lightly browned. Add a dash of salt and pepper and drain off any fat.
  • 3Build your sandwich: First sprinkle both cheeses into the center of the tortilla; keeping in mind that you will be folding the sides in like a burrito. So leave so room on the sides.
  • 4Sprinkle, the mushroom, onion, tomato, and cilantro over the cheese. Crumble the bacon and sprinkle this over the cheese as well.
  • 5Sprinkle the cooked beef over the other ingredients. This is when I add any additional items I would like such as hot sauce and usually jalapeños.
  • 6Fold the sides of the tortilla in, then spread the tablespoon of butter over the top and bottom of the "sandwich" and grill it in a hot pan over medium heat for about 2 minutes per side, or until the tortilla is nice and golden in color and the cheeses are melted.
  • 7Slice the "sandwich" in half diagonally and serve while hot with assorted garnished along side.
  • 8Muy bien!!
