Quesadillas with Guacamole

Posted 2018-01-11 by finyfollow

This is real "cafe food", and is easy to make and delicious!

Quesadillas are flour tortillas with a savoury filling, which are fried or grilled before being served.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 1 quesadilla (1 - 2 people)

Ingredients
¼ tbsp olive oil
Small clove garlic, crushed
25 g red onion, chopped finely
Cayenne pepper
½ tsp cumin, ground
50 g red capsicum, chopped finely
50 g green capsicum, chopped finely
120 g shredded bbq chicken (About half a chicken)
2 large flour tortillas
½ cup cheese, grated
For the guacamole
¼ tbsp fresh coriander, chopped finely
55 g tomato, chopped finely
About 15 g small red onion, chopped finely
½ large avocado, chopped coarsley
½ tbsp lime juice
Dollop of sour cream (optional)

Method
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan, and cook the garlic and onion, stirring until the onion softens.

  • Add the spices and capsicums, and cook, stirring until the capsicums soften.


  • Remove from the heat and stir in the chicken.

  • Place one tortilla in the frypan, or on a plate, and top with half of the cheese, then half of the chicken mixture. I lifted it at this stage and put it into an oiled pan.


  • Add the rest of the cheese, and top with the second tortilla.

  • Cook the quesadilla over a medium heat, until golden brown.

  • To turn it, I put a plate on top of the frypan and gently inverted this. I then carefully slid it back into the slightly oiled frypan - bits did fall out, however just push them back in!

  • Cook on this other side till it is slightly browned.


  • Meanwhile get the guacamole ready by mashing the avocado with a fork, and adding the chopped tomato, and other ingredients
  • .

  • Serve the quesadillas, cut into quarters, with the guacamole and, if desired, a dollop of sour cream.
