Guacamole Quesadillas

Easy Guacamole Quesadillas

Remember my Avocado and White Bean Baked Burritos I recently shared with you guys!? I was blown away by the extra melty, creamy and rich element that the warm avocado brought to the recipe. Well, they got me thinking about recipes to whip up using warm avocado. Up until a few weeks ago, I had been enjoying my avocado cold in the form of guac or creamy dressings.

I like using my Favorite Guacamole in these Easy Guacamole Quesadillas because of the corn, tomatoes, red onion, lime juice and fresh cilantro incorporated into the guacamole recipe. I’m guessing you can probably get away with store bough guac if you are in a pinch but using freshly made guacamole in these super ‘n quick Quesadillas really does make all the difference! (Click the photo below for the guacamole recipe!)

And by easy I mean all you got to do for this “recipe” is slather some guac onto a tortilla wrap (use gluten free tortilla wraps if necessary), toss some shredded carrots, fresh cilantro, green onion and LOTS a few drops of hot sauce on top.

The final step is grilling your Vegan Guacamole Quesadillas lightly until they are perfectly crispy on the outside and oozing with warm guacamole on the inside, YUM!

I love serving these Guacamole Quesadillas as a funny appetizer when guests come over or eating half of one alongside a veggie packed soup or salad for lunch.

Guacamole Quesadillas


  • Author: Ceara
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 8 quesadilla quarters 1x

Description

These Guacamole Quesadillas make the perfect appetizer, main or side! Serve them warm from the pan, freshly grilled and oozing with warm avocado-packed guacamole.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 serving of My Favorite Guacamole
  • 4 large tortilla wraps
  • 1 heaping cup shredded carrots
  • handful of cilantro sprigs, chopped
  • handful of green onion, chopped
  • hot sauce
  • olive oil (for lightly coating quesadillas)

Instructions

  1. Prepare 1 serving of my Favorite Guacamole Recipe.
  2. Lightly brush the tortillas with olive oil. Fill the quesadillas by placing 1 cup of guacamole in the tortilla. With the back of a spoon, spread the guacamole out towards the side of the tortilla wrap (see photo). Evenly sprinkle 1/2 cup of the shredded carrots on top. Toss a small handful of chopped cilantro and green onion on top with a few shakes of hot sauce. Place the second tortilla wrap on top.
  3. On medium heat, in a non-stick skillet, transfer the quesadilla to the pan. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes (carefully flipping the quesadilla so it doesn’t fall apart!) until warm on the inside and nice and crispy on the outside.
  4. Cook second quesadilla the same way (you will have a bit of guacamole left over).
  5. Cut into quarters. Garnish with chopped cilantro and green onion and serve with remaining guacamole.

Notes

1) Use gluten free tortilla wraps if necessary.
2) Use a non-stick pan to make these oil-free. I prefer them with a light brush of olive or avocado oil before placing them in the pan.
3) I used large tortilla wraps for this recipe. If you are using smaller wraps you will need to adjust the amount of guacamole and shredded carrots in each quesadilla.

  1. You could make these with corn tortillas too. My mom gave me a similar recipe that used mashed avocados and frozen corn. They were delicious.

  2. As a vegetarian working towards veganism, the only problem I have left is figuring out how to make my favorite type of food, Mexican, without cheese. I was actually thinking this morning, how on earth can I make quesadillas vegan? (Vegan cheese is not available in my oh-so-not progressive town).
    As fate would have it, this showed up in my news feed!
    Thank You Ceara, you are brilliant and I will surely be visiting you regularly =)

    1. Thank you SO much for for the kind words and lovely comment Gina! I am so happy that you are enjoying the recipes! I swear I don’t even miss the cheese in these quessadillas! ๐Ÿ˜€ <3 All the best to you and thanks again for the support!

  3. OMG I’m drooling Ceara! What an amazing idea! I love avocado sooo much, but never had them smashed inside a quesadilla…the closest I’ve gotten is on hot toast and in burgers. This looks amazing and I love the shredded carrots!

    1. Avocado smashed inside a warm quesadilla was such a game changer for me when I whipped this up in the kitchen, hehe! So darn yummy ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks, Brandi!

  4. I love pretty much anything stuffed inside a quesadilla! They are my go-to when I need something quick and easy. These look super creamy and delicious!

  5. Guacamole quesadillas are such a great idea! Guac is such an already flavor-packed gooey filling just waiting to be tortilla-sandwiched and grilled. Definitely the easiest and healthiest quesadillas I’ve seen, need to try this ๐Ÿ™‚
