Sluttishly Vegetarian: Quesadilla with Guacamole

Mexican food is one of my very favourite types of food and, due to the fact that until recently finding a decent local Mexican restaurant* was akin to beating one's head repeatedly against a wall, I have been rustling up my own Mexican goodies for many years now.

It also pretty perfect when you are catering for both vegetarian and meat eaters alike as a lot of Mexican food just involves grabbing a handful of stuff, be that veggies, meat or beans, and chucking it in a tortilla. Earlier this week Sara shared her recipe for fajitas and if you enjoyed them then you will love these quesadilla, which are essentially a toasted sandwich Mexican stylee!

This recipe is for a vegetarian version of a quesadilla but you can tweak it to your personal taste by adding meat and/or substituting veggies. If you want to make them for more people just increase your quantities accordingly.

Quesadilla with guacamole (serves 1 or 2 for lunch)

You will need:

For the quesadilla
  • 2 flour tortilla
  • 75g Cheese, grated
  • 1 large Carrot, grated
  • 2 Spring Onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Red Chilli, thinly sliced
For the guacamole
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 ripe tomato, deseeded and diced
  • 1 red chilli, diced
  • Lime Juice, to taste
  • Salt, to taste
Make it!

For the quesadilla
  • Mix together the vegetable and cheese.
  • Lay one of your tortilla in a dry frying pan. Spread the vegetable and cheese mixture over the tortilla and place the other tortilla on the top. Cook over a medium heat for 1 - 2 minutes until the cheese starts to melt.
  • Flip over the quesadilla and cook on the other side for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from pan and serve immediately cut into wedges with some guacamole, salsa or sour cream.
For the guacamole
  • Mash your avocado in a bowl with a fork to your desired level of chunkiness.
  • Add the diced tomatoes and chilli pepper and mix together.
  • Add lime juice and salt to taste. Serve immediately.

* In case you are wondering my holy grail is Salsa Mexicana which is one of the very best authentic Mexican eateries I have had the pleasure to visit. If you live in or around Leeds, or even if you are just visiting, go eat there as soon as you can.
