The Cheats Quesadilla – a quick, easy and cheap recipe – with Chunky Avocado Salsa
According to America’s Real Simple magazine, one of the best ways to use less water is to eat a vegetarian meal once a week – or if you already eat vego occasionally – to eat one more vegetarian meal a week. It’s a big call, but they claim that giving up just over 100gm of beef a week will save more than 60,000 litres of water a year. So to inspire you to eat more veg, and to celebrate the surprising self-control I have shown by reaching 10 whole posts (!!) I am giving you the gift of an easy and delicious vego recipe that I have tried and tested many times at home.
- 1 Packet of tortillas
- 1 Can of refried beans
- ½ Red Onion –finely chopped
- Juice of 1 lime
- 3 Tomatoes – chopped
- 1 Avocado – chopped
- ½ Cup of coriander leaves
- Cheese (optional)
To make chunky avocado salsa: mix the tomatoes, avocado and coriander together. Sometimes I like to add some corn to the mix too.
To make quesadillas: mix the refried beans, red onion and lime juice in a bowl. Spread over half of the tortillas and sprinkle cheese over the top if desired. Use the other half of tortillas to top them off.
Place a frypan on a medium heat, add a little olive oil if it takes your fancy, and fry your tortilla sandwiches for a minute or so on each side.
Once warmed through, cut the quesadillas into portions for serving, and top with chunky avo salsa.
