Grilled Avocado Quesadillas

These avocado quesadillas are some of the best quesadillas I have ever had. These can be made for lunch, dinner, appetizers.. whatever you see fit. They are so good and packed with fresh flavor! If you don’t have a grill or don’t feel like grilling–just toast them under the broiler for a few seconds! We make this all the time as a meal but it would also be a great BBQ appetizer! Every time we make these, we can’t seem to get enough! Try it for yourself and see how good they are because seriously… YUM.

  • Heat up the grill and spray with cooking spray.
  • Chop all of the vegetables. Stir together olives, avocado, bell pepper, jalapeno, cilantro, onion and lime juice. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place tortillas on the grill and grill for about 45-60 seconds or until the tortilla starts to get golden-brown grill stripes.
