  1. Where do you find 24 inch tortillas?


  1. We had a couple of friends over and I made these delicious and different quesadillas. I had to make two batches, one for the hotties and one for the milds. I increased the Tabasco to 1 t. and added chopped jalapeno pepper for the hotties. The original recipe was perfect for the milds. Monterey Jack cheese was a great choice. Thanks a bunch.
  2. This was very good and had people asking for the recipe. I cut it into small squares and used as an appetizer. The filling would also be good as a dip w/chips. Thanks.
  3. This is a perfect light meal...Very yummy! Like many ppl recommended I used olive oil and scallions. We found it a bit watery, but it could be because I didn't seed the tomatoes...I will next time. Will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing.
  4. Wow! Is this ever good! A big hit at the dinner table and a refreshing change from the bean-filled quesadillas I usually make. Love avocado, so this is a definite keeper. Thanks for submitting it!
  5. so delicious!! the Avocado gives it a really fresh taste and is a great idea for a meat-free meal!


  1. Nice way to use avocado. I used scallions instead of onions. Added corn, chipolte pepper, feta, taco seasoning and mozzarella since I did not have MJ cheese. I found the flavor was still lacking a little. Maybe I will use MJ next time...
  2. YUM!!! This is SO good! I made only a few changes. I halved the recipe, left out the Tabasco sauce and used fresh lime juice instead of lemon juice. What a great lunch. I might have to have a repeat tomorrow.... :) Thanks!
  3. I am not a big fan of avocado but I loved these. I skipped the coriander(personal taste) and used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I had these for a brunch and they were perfect.
  4. This made a nice, tasty, light dinner for me. I love the avocado in this. I used scallions instead of red onion. Thanks!
