Quesadillas with guacamole



I borrowed this recipe from Jamie Oliver's Valentine day menu because it looked quite easy to make and I absolutely love avocado. Another reason was that I wanted to try something with a Mexican touch and you can find tortillas at our home any time. Anyway, when Quesadillas were made, my Turkish family called them 'börek' as almost everything that has flour and is fried is called börek ( even my pancakes!)! Ok, let's say this dish is Quesadillas/ Börek with Mexican and Turkish taste...plus guacamole sauce :D

What we need:

for Quesadillas:

3-4 homemade or bought tortillas

any cheese ( I used gauda and cheddar cheese mix)

fried onion

chilli pepper

salt and pepper

a pinch of thyme and chopped parsley

( you can make any filling you like, it was just my vegetarian version)

a drizzle of oil for frying

for guacamole:

1 ripe avocado ( when you buy it may be a bit hard, so leave it in a sunny place for a few days, it will get softer)

2 tomatoes

1 onion or some spring onions

chilli pepper

dried coriander ( fresh would be even better)

salt and pepper

some parsley ( optional)

lemon or lime juice

What we have to do:

1. Spread tortillas with shredded cheese and fried onion, add salt and pepper, parsley and thyme. Cover with another tortilla or bend one tortilla in a half and fry in a pan with just a bit of oil or butter. Cut into triangles when ready and serve with a sauce.

2. Cut avocado in half, scoop the green soft part and put into food processor or a blender. Add tomatoes, onion, spieces, lemon juice and blend it. When ready put into a bowl and serve! If you like it chunky, chop some extra onion or tomato and add after blending. Enjoy!!!

    Jolita, turiu draugę, nutekėjusią į Turkiją, būtent į Istambulą. Baisiai norėtų su tavimi susisiekti. Jei turi noro, parašyk man į paštą, mielai perduočiau jai tavo e-mailą. Gal ir tau būtų įdomu su ja susirašyti. Gali man rašyti štai čia: jurgitabarda@gmail.com
