This is a great quesadilla for sure! I loved that it was done in the broiler. Quick and easy. Used corn tortillas which I didn't even bother cutting into triangles because they were so small. Also I don't ever have sour cream on hand so I just omitted that and stirred the cilantro into the avocado mixture. Fresh and delicious!
Turns out the oven is a very easy way to make quesadillas. I loved the avocado in this- made them so creamy. I subbed Tapatio in place of the Tabasco (personal preference) and I was very easy for me to put away 2 whole servings of this for dinner!
Amazing! This is such a fresh-tasting quesadilla with the wonderful avocado-tomato blend. Thanks for sharing this great treat.
