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.
Grilled Avocado Quesadillas
1 (6oz.) can sliced black olives, drained
3 firm-ripe avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and diced
1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped (or 2 baby bell peppers)
1 jalapeno, finely chopped
1/3 cup fresh chopped cilantro
2 tbsp red onion, finely chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Kosher salt to taste
4 large flour tortillas
cheddar cheese (or Monterey Jack), shredded
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. Flip the tortillas and cover with cheese; grill until cheese is melted and tortilla is crisp and slightly browned on the bottom. Divide avocado mixture among the tortillas, cut each tortilla into 4 wedges and serve immediately.
