Avocado Quesadillas Recipe

avocado quesadillas recipe

Our Easter week-end was quiet. We were invited to visit my parents in Quebec but my husband was working and two of my kids were studying for their exams. We will get together, next week-end, for my son's birthday. We will probably spend the afternoon playing board games and have Dinner.

I was searching for Mexican recipes and was inspired to make Avocado Quesadillas. Some of you may not eat avocados, because they are high in fat, but they are packed with nutrients and they are healthy for you. Don't be afraid to use them when you are cooking. I love avocados in my guacamole recipe and also in these quesadillas.

To make them you will need ripe avocados, Tex-Mex shredded cheese and tortillas. I used whole-wheat tortillas for this recipe. I filled my tortillas with sliced avocados and cheese. They were cooked in a non-stick pan. You can serve these quesadillas with salsa and sour cream.

1 ripe avocado, sliced
2 tortillas
1/4 cup Tex-Mex shredded cheese

1- Peel and slice avocado.
2- Place one tortilla into a non-stick pan.
3- Top the tortilla with avocado slices and Tex-Mex cheese.
4- Place another tortilla on top of the cheese.
5- Cook on medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side, until the cheese has melted.
6- Cut into 4 pieces and serve with salsa.

Please note that this serves one but you can make as many as you want. All you have to do is double or triple the recipe.

Bon Appétit!
