Mexican Quesadilla

Ahead of my new 1 item, 3 ways week, I wanted to get another quick post in. This was my lunch today and felt like others would enjoy this as much as I did 🙂

I made a super easy and very delicious quesadilla with some mexican flavours. I started with a flour tortilla and put some cheese on half. Then I sprinkled all my toppings – black beans, corn kernels, pickled peppers – and more cheese on top. The only thing it could’ve used to make it even better would be some avocado. You could make a super basic quesadilla with just cheese, but I love the extra flavours and textures from the other toppings.

I baked it in a 375° oven until the cheese was melted and the tortilla was nice and crispy. Oh boy did it look good. I made a little spicy dipping sauce to go along side. This was such a delicious lunch.

This recipe can easily be doubled or quadrupled to feed a family.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large flour tortilla
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese, divided
  • Choice of fillings (~2 tbsp each): black beans, corn kernels, pickled peppers, avocado
  • 2 tbsp plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp sriracha, or to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Line baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  2. Place tortilla on pan. Spread 1/4 cup of cheese on one half of the tortilla. Sprinkle desired toppings, then cover with remaining 1/4 cup cheese.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for about 5 minutes, until tortilla is golden brown and cheese is melted.
  4. While quesadilla is baking, prepare the dip: combine greek yogurt and sriracha in small bowl, adjusting spice level to your taste.
  5. Once quesadilla is done, remove from oven, slice into wedges and serve with dip.
