Cheesy Veg Quesadilla with Guacamole !


Hello All,

Wish you all a merry Christmas. I ma here today with the first Mexican dish for the blog.. Quesadilla and with the very famous dip Guacamole. 
Quesadilla is similar to sandwich but here a cheese based filling is sandwiched between two tortillas or a tortilla folded into half and shallow fried on a skillet.  The stuffing can be a vegetable , meat or just cheese. The tortilla can either be flour based or corn based.
THis time i used store bought flour tortillas, but next time when i plan to make quesadilla i am going to try making them at home.
Refer HERE for Guacamole recipe.



 INGREDIENTS
  • 2 Flour Tortillas (store bought or homemade)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 80 gms grated cheddar cheese
  • handful of chopped spring onions
  • 1/2 an onion
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • few jalapenos
  • fistful chopped coriander
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • salt as needed
  • 1/2 tsp crushed pepper
STEPS
  • Heat a pan and add oil to it. Once hot add the tomatoes , white part of spring onions and the bell peppers and saute well.
  • Add some grated carrot (optional) and saute everything together.
  • Add salt and pepper and the coriander and throw in the chopped jalapenos. 
  • Turn off stove.
  • Grate the cheese and keep the tortillas ready (in case they are frozen or refrigerated)


  • Heat a pan or skillet and smear some butter in it.
  • Place the tortilla and let it cook on one side for 1 - 2 minute and flip it.



  • Spread the cheese on one half of the tortilla as shown. 
  • Place the mix veg on the cheese and again spread some cheese as shown.
  • You can also place the stuffing on the whole tortilla and place another tortilla on top. But i prefer this method.


  • Fold the tortilla and again apply some butter on the tortilla and cook on the skillet till it turn to golden brown and crisp


Cut the tortilla into wedges and serve warm or hot with Guacamole!












Happy cooking and healthy eating !
