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.  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.

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! Try it for yourself and see how good they are!

Pick the Perfect Avocado

When it comes to picking out a great avocado, here are a couple of things to keep in mind. You can’t tell if an avocado is ripe just based on sight. You need to touch it. Feel it in the palm of your hand and gently squeeze. If it is ripe, it should yield to firm, gentle pressure. But be careful, you don’t want it to be overly soft or mushy.

An avocado that is too ripe won’t hurt you. It will just look brown, similar to the look of an avocado that has been left out to oxidize (be exposed to too much air). But they won’t make you sick or anything. Most people prefer the brighter green color of a properly ripe avocado.

More Great Avocado Flavor

If you like the taste of avocado, there are more ways than just these great Avocado Quesadillas to try. Check out any of these recipes where avocados take a leading role.

  2. This looks really good…although I’m vegan so I am just going to make it with Daiya cheese. 🙂 I’m going to pin it too. You’ve got a great website.
