Quesadillas are a favourite weekend or holiday lunch for our family.
We were introduced to them by our beautiful American friend Sarah. She came to stay with us for a few weeks on a overseas-study home-stay and became part of the family. Quesadillas were cooked for dinner one night and quickly became a resident recipe.
Now that the kids are bigger they like to make their own (can you see me smiling!? No more “Mum, what can I have for lunch?”)- and because quesadillas are an easy, adaptable and healthy meal, they make the perfect way to get kids enthusiastic about cooking as well.
Here’s what we use:
flat wraps (we use Mission® Burrito Tortillas)
sweet chilli sauce
Other variations we’ve tried:
no avocado – not recommended. The avocado definitely adds another layer of flavour.
smoked salmon – a favourite for Daughter and myself.
cream cheese – delicious with the smoked salmon.
shredded chicked – okay, although the chicken keeps wanting to fall out.
barbeque sauce – for something a little different to sweet chilli.
