Spicy chicken and feta cheese quesidillas with guacamole
April 23, 2012 in Uncategorized
Quesidillas are my go-to meal when I need something quick, tasty and filling. I love it’s versatility and the fact that you an use absolutely anything as a filling. Left-overs are given a new life when teamed with gooey cheese and toasted between two tortillas/wraps.
This is not so much a recipe as it is a list of suggestions for fillings as I don’t exactly need to teach you how to make a quesidilla. It really is just a different form of a toasted cheese sandwich. I always like to pair a protein (shredded chicken/pork, slow-cooked beef/lamb, roughly chopped prawns or beans) with vegetables (literally anything goes here, from spinach, chopped broccoli, corn, courgettes, etc.) and cheese (I like a mixture of mature cheddar and mozzarella to bind everything together and then like to add feta, goat’s cheese or Gorgonzola for flavour). For added flavour I like to add herbs (parsley, coriander, mint) and sliced chillies or pickled jalapeños. It’s very hard to go wrong and unless you try a filling that is completely strange you will have a winner every time.
To serve the quesidillas I like to make a very smooth and velvety guacamole by simply placing ripe avo’s, lemon juice, salt & pepper in my food processor and whizzing it until it’s smooth but you can of course, mash it with a potato masher/fork or even make a chunky guacamole by cubing the avo and tossing with the flavourings. I also like to make a spicy tomato & red onion salsa which I make in the food processor as well (simply because I’m too lazy to chop everything up by hand). But you can serve the quesidillas on their own or try other condiments.
I love how the crispy tortillas is complimented by the oozy cheese…doesn’t that just look like heaven on a plate?
