Avocado Quesadillas with Salsa

This is such a comfort food for me. I’ve been making it for years, and I haven’t changed a thing since day one.

The salsa is basic and all my own. I’ve made it at least 5 dozen times at this point, and it’s always a huge hit. And it’ll only set you back about $4. The whole meal itself actually will set you back no more than $8. So at $4 a person, of course I’ve made this countless of times for lunch and dinner.

Dinner for two:

  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1 ½ to 2 cups Mexican-style cheese
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1 large tomato, quartered
  • ¼ white onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 Serrano peppers, roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ½ cup cilantro leaves
  • Cumin, salt, and pepper

In a food processor or blender, pulse the tomato quarters, white onion, pepper, garlic, cilantro leaves, lime juice, and seasonings. If using a blender, place the tomato quarters in first, leaving the onions closer to the top of the blender, that way the mixture isn’t too onion-y. Cover and refrigerate.

In a pan on medium heat, warm a tortilla. Add cheese, avocado slices and more cheese. Top with another tortilla. Cook until lightly brown and cheese has melted. Flip and cook until that side is brown.

(I feel really silly giving instructions for quesadillas by the way.)

Serve with lime wedges if desired.
