Grilled Avocado Quesadillas

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 5 mins

I have been making this recipe at the cottage for numerous years now. (I was given it by a "summer neighbour"). It makes a nice light meal with a tossed salad and I love that it can be made up to four hours ahead of time and there is no fussing with people having to tailor their own.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and pit avocado.
  2. Chop and stir with tomato, corn, green onions, salt, pepper, coriander, and mozzarella.
  3. Spread over half of each tortilla.
  4. Fold uncovered half over filling and gently press the edges together.
  5. In a non-stick frypan, or on a grill heated to medium, cook quesadillas for 1 1/2 minutes or until bottom is lightly browned.
  6. Flip over and cook until filling is heated through.
  7. Can be prepared up to 4 hours ahead of time, covered, and refrigerated.

Very good. It went together quickly and the quesadilla cooked up in no time at all. The only change I might make is to add some more seasoning. I think a little spice would make it even better. Maybe some minced garlic and a little cumin. Update: I changed these to 5 stars because I can't stop craving them! I made them with a heaping spoonful of garlic in a jar this time, and really liked that addition. They are so light and delicious! It did only make 3 or 4 quesadillas for us - even using the small size. I definitely recommend trying these! Made for My Three Chefs - Fall 09

I wasn't sure about how this was going to taste with the warm avocado but it was delicious! I substituted cooked diced red pepper for the tomato and added some green chili peppers for a bit of spice. Thanks for the recipe!
