Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! When I normally make quesadillas I make a plain cheese quesadilla, because of the picky eater that I am. Recently though, I decided to mix things up a bit and try something new and thus the “Avocado Quesadilla” was born!
Ingredients: (1 serving, 1 small quesadilla)
1/2 an Avocado
3 grape tomatoes
1/4 cup Mexican Cheese
2 Flour Tortillas (Follow this link to make Homemade Tortillas)
1. Put ingredients in between two tortillas.
2. Cook in skillet for about 5 minutes or until cheese melts and sticks the two tortillas together. Remember to flip quesadilla for even cooking.

Don’t let this nutrition information scare you! Yes, this recipe is a lot of calories but it fills you up even though it is a small quesadilla. I also could have used better quality tortillas and cheese, but I’ll be perfectly honest I’m a poor/busy college student and don’t always have the time to make homemade tortillas. The avocado added a good amount of calories and fat, but remember that they contain the “good” kind of fat, monounsaturated fats.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe and happy Cinco de Mayo!!!
