Ingredients

  • 1 cup taco meat use leftovers or prepare taco meat using ground beef/turkey/chicken and taco seasoning
  • 1 cup refried beans
  • 1-2 cups grated jack/cheddar cheese
  • 1 large avocado
  • 4 burrito-size flour tortillas room temperature
  • 2-3 tablespoons salted butter or vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Place a flour tortilla flat on the workspace. Use a sharp knife or kitchen shears to cut a single line from the center to the edge of the tortilla. Rotate the tortilla, if needed, so that the cut line is pointed straight down.
  • Imagine the tortilla divided into four quadrants - the first quadrant being the one directly to the left of the cut, and then moving clockwise to quadrant 2, 3, and 4.
  • In quadrant 1, spread about 1⁄4 cup of refried beans to cover the area of the quadrant.
  • In quadrant 2, place 1⁄4 cup of the taco meat (meat should cover the full quadrant in a single layer).
  • In quadrant 3, place 1⁄4 of the avocado, lightly mashed.
  • In the final quadrant (to the right of the slice line), sprinkle 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup of cheese.
  • To fold up the quesadilla, flip quadrant 1 up on to quadrant 2. Because the beans are on quadrant
  • one, they won’t spill out as you fold it up.
  • Continue folding the quesadilla in a clockwise direction until it is folded into a compact triangle.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt a dab of the butter over medium heat. Use a spatula to scoop under the
  • folded quesadilla and lift it gently into the pan, being careful not to let the cheese spill out. (The
  • cheese will be on the bottom layer of the folded quesadilla.
  • Cook the quesadilla over medium or medium-low heat until the quesadilla is browned and the
  • cheese is melty.
  • Flip the quesadilla (either add a bit more butter to the pan or spread a bit of butter on to the side that
  • is face up before you flip it over).
  • Continue cooking until the quesadilla is browned on both sides.
  • Repeat these steps to cook the remaining quesadillas.
