going back south

Well, dear readers, I don't have much of a post for you today (but there is something of a recipe, don't worry). This is mostly because I am trapped in a barrage of trip-planning - I'm going back South for the weekend!, among other trips this summer - and that is, well, a little stressful.

So for right now, just have this little guide to avocado quesadillas. (Because apparently two other quesadilla recipes aren't enough. Duh.)

Daniel's Avocado Quesadillas

2 large avocados (or 3 medium ones)
1 medium onion
shredded cheese - we used pepperjack and cheddar
minced garlic - as much as you desire

Prepare the avocados by basically making guacamole. (And let me amend: lime juice is key for tasty guac. It just is.)

Dice the onion, and slightly carmelize them. Throw in the garlic for about a minute and then pull off the heat.

Pour a little oil into a frying pan. Using low heat, warm the tortilla and sprinkle the cheese on top of it. When the cheese has melted a little bit, transfer to a plate. Add some of the onions, and spread the guacamole, before folding.

You will need a knife and fork to eat this. It's a little messy, but also absolutely delicious.


  1. The degree to which you dress the avocados should be proportionate to how awesome your avocados are. If they are not very good, add some salsa, maybe a little garlic. Don't go too crazy.

    The avocados we had for this meal, however, were nothing short of incredible. A splash of lime juice and a sprinkle of salt was all we needed.

  2. Or, if you are like me, you can just use garlic hot sauce and get the best of both worlds! (I need to pick up some more of that. It's so good.)
