Quesadillas with a Spicy Guacamole

This is a super easy, super quick recipe for a delicious dinner. You can easily adapt this recipe, and if you want to make it even nicer, but less healthy, double the cheese so it oozes out when you eat it.

The guacamole in this recipe is more like a fresh avocado salsa. For a slightly more creamy guacamole, see our recipe here. Continue reading

The recipe is incredibly quick, and the thing that takes the longest time is waiting for it to cool once it comes out the oven. You can easily adapt the recipe as well, to suit your own tastes or to vary things a little if you make them regularly. Continue reading
