Plan your Cinco de Mayo feast with our tasty Mexican quesadillas. Your guests will love it!
- 3 pinches Just Spices Guacamole Seasoning
- 2 avocados
- 1 bunch coriander
- 2 cups (200 g) grated cheese
- 1 bunch spring onions
- red chili peppers (optional)
Tortillas (approx. 10 pieces):
- 1 ½ cups (225 g) wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ⅛ cup (40 g) butter
- ½ cup (110 ml) lukewarm water
- 2 cups (400 g) ripe tomatoes
- 1 jalapeño
- 1 lime
- 1 small onion
- some coriander
1. First of all, prepare the delicious salsa: Wash the tomatoes and mix half of them in a blender. You remove the core from the rest of the tomatoes. Afterwards, you add it to the other tomatoes in the blender. Mix it well. Put the mixture in a pot. Now remove the core of the jalapeño and chop together with the onions. Add the jalapeño and the onion to the tomato mixture. Season the mixture with limejuice, salt, and pepper. Now chop the coriander roughly and add it to the salsa. The salsa gets the best flavor when you let it rest for a few hours.
2. Now prepare the tortilla dough: Sift the flour and the salt in a bowl, add the butter and mix it with the flour. Slowly add the lukewarm water. The amount of water can vary according to the flour. Knead the dough until it no longer sticks. Form small dough balls of approx. 20-25g. Press them flat with a noodle wood and roll them out very thinly . Put the flat dough balls now in a very hot coated pan and fry the balls on each side for approx. 30 sec.
3. For the filling, you first need to peel the avocado. Remove the stone and cut the avocado in thin slices. Now clean the spring onions and cut them in thin rings. Chop roughly the coriander and remove the seeds from the red chili peppers. Cut the chilies in thin rings. Put one tortilla in the coated pan and add some of the cheese, the avocado slices as well as the spring onions and chilies. Season the quesadilla with our Guacamole Seasoning. Now cover the filling with a second tortilla and bake it for approx. 2 minutes and turn it around once. Be careful! The pan shouldn’t be too hot, otherwise the tortillas might burn.
