I started working full time, so I haven’t been blogging much. But I’ve still been cooking—although I’ve been gravitating towards easier meals that take less prep time. Which is more realistic for most people anyway. So I’ve made these quesadillas for dinner a couple times because they’re easy and yummy.
My mom made these avocado quesadillas for us growing up. And she didn’t even like them. She liked cheese quesadillas sans avocado. So she’d make these for us and cheese quesadillas for herself. Moms. They’re so nice, you know?
My mom didn’t make homemade tortillas, but these homemade sprouted wheat tortillas make the quesadillas even better. Not necessary, but extra healthy and extra good.
So, avocado quesadillas are really simple to make. All you need are some ripe avocados, your favorite salsa, limes, cheese, tortillas, and butter.
- 3 ripe avocados
- 1 lime
- ½ cup salsa
- 1 cup grated cheddar or pepper jack cheese
- 4 tortillas
- Cut the avocados in half, remove pit, scoop avocado onto a plate or cutting board.
- Mash avocado with a fork and then put into a bowl.
- Cut lime in half and squeeze juice onto avocado.
- Add salsa and stir together until combined.
- Heat a pan over medium-low heat.
- Add ½ Tbsp butter.
- Take a tortilla and spread ¼ of the avocado mixture onto one side of it.
- Sprinkle cheese on top of the avocado.
- Fold the tortilla in half.
- Place the quesadilla in the hot pan and cook until the tortilla is brown and the cheese has begun to melt, about 1 minute.
- Flip the tortilla to the other side and cook until the cheese if fully melted, about 1 minute.
- Serve hot, topped with more salsa or sour cream.
