Recipe: Quesadillas with Guacamole & Salsa

After several people requested some recipes from me, i have decided to broaden the scope of the blog to include recipes. Initially i will focus on recipes which people have asked me about but this may grow to include others.

Now i want to state for the record that most of these recipes are from other places, however they now live in my recipe box, i have modified some of them and i have no idea where any of them came from originally.
So full credit to the original authors!

As you know we are following the Baby-Led Weaning method of eating for bub so any recipes are bub friendly, i usually just decrease the salt content and occasionally change the way i chop the veg to make it easier for bub to handle.

First up, one of bub & hubby's favourites-

 Quesadillas with Guacamole & Salsa

Salsa (or you can totally use a shop one, i prefer an Enchilada Sauce)

1/2 Chipotle Chilli
400g Tin Crushed Tomatoes (don't use supermarket brand as they are too watery)
1tsp Tomato Paste
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1 tbsp Caster Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt

Dry fry the chopped chipotle on a low heat. Add other ingredients, boil then simmer for 5mins. Season.
Place in a small bowl on the table, ready to enjoy.


5 Cherry Tomatoes, quartered
2 Avocados, smashed
Juice of 1/2 a lime

Combine in a bowl and place on the table ready to eat!


1 packet of tortillas makes 4 quesadillas
175g grated Cheddar Cheese (alter this amount if your quesadillas end up not sticking together enough)
2 Red Capsicums, finely diced
4 tbsp Fresh Coriander Leaves, chopped
5 Spring Onions, finely chopped

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.
Preheat a toasted sandwich maker (could use a frypan if you don't have one).
 Place 1 tortilla on the sandwich press, add filling to within 2cm of edge, place another tortilla on top. Press till it starts to sizzle. Remove and place on chopping board. Set up next tortilla and while it is pressing, chop into wedges. Place the wedges on a plate. Repeat till the whole packet of tortillas is gone.

Then sit down, and enjoy your quesadillas smothered with your guacamole, salsa and some sour cream.

This recipe makes enough for myself, hubby & bub to have for dinner. Enjoy!
Let me know if you like it.
