Is a quesadilla REALLY a recipe? Of course not. But I made one yesterday & I photographed it & now I am going to share the details.
The only news here for me are these uncooked tortillas.
They really DO heat (in a dry pan) in sixty seconds and, for some reason, I feel way classier using them. If you want go get crazy & make homemade tortillas – like the spinach ones I made in the photo below – the recipe is HERE. They are really easy but they do take longer than sixty seconds.
Vegan Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce
Blend 1/3 cup vegan (or regular) mayo with 1-2 TBS sriracha.
Avocado & Jalapeno Quesadilla
Tortillas – I used the uncooked ones but any kind will do
Cheese (vegan or otherwise) – I used a pizza blend of cheddar & mozzarella
Avocado – sliced
Jalapeno – seeded & diced
Tomato – diced
If using the uncooked tortillas, cook them up until they JUST begin to brown – like you see above. When those are ready – assemble the quesadilla in a grill or frying pan over med-high heat. I stacked cheese & tomato & jalapeno & then avocado (I forgot to add the cilantro!), topped it with another tortilla & pressed it with the lid from another pan. After a few minutes – maybe 2 – I flipped it. When it was nicely browned on both sides – I sliced it up & drizzled it with the sriracha mayo & shoved it in my face like it was my first meal in weeks. I then sat in a food coma for several hours. It happens. Don’t judge.
