Have you ever thought to yourself, “I think I’ll make a fry out of an avocado!” Well, I certainly did not think of the idea but it sounds delicious and the next time I run across avocados, I’ll have to bake up some avocado fries. A blog that I love, Canadian Budget Binder, posted this recently and I wanted to pass on the link to his recipe for all of you to check out. So click here to see his awesome post about the amazing Baked Avocado Fries.
Monterey Jack Cheese
Heat oil in a pan large enough to hold your tortilla flat. Place tortilla in pan and flip it about every 10 seconds. You are waiting for the tortilla to heat nicely and soften. It should have some small air bubbles form. When this happens, you can add your cheese and the rest of your ingredients. Be mindful that this shouldn’t be too thick. Turn off the heat so you don’t burn the tortilla. Some browning is good but burning just isn’t tasty. Let the cheese melt a bit then carefully fold the tortilla in half. Top with additional cheese. Cut your quesadilla into manageable pieces. Mine was cut into three pieces but if you have a very large (diameter) tortilla, you may need to cut it into more pieces.
This is a great weeknight meal that’s easy to throw together last minute. You can easily add what ever kind of meat you want but this version focuses on the non meat. If you have picky eaters, it is also super easy to leave out what they don’t like. You can also add peppers if you want some extra spice. I like serving my taco salad in a bowl so I’m not chasing ingredients all over a plate to get a taste of each on the fork.
Cook bacon on a griddle. While the bacon is cooking, make your avocado spread if you don’t have some on hand. Butter one side of each piece of bread and set it aside. Prepare the rest of your ingredients so you can assemble the sandwich when the bread is done. Once your bacon is cooked, set it aside on a few paper towels to soak up bacon grease. Wipe down your griddle and “toast” your bread. Once the bread is toasted, it’s time to assemble this monstrous sandwich.
This simple spread is delicious and can be used as either a dip, a sandwich spread, or a tasty gourmet baby food. My son tried this for the first time when he was just barely 9 months old and he absolutely loved it.
1 large Avocado
1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Lime Juice
4 Cilantro Sprigs
Cut your avocado in half. Take out the pit and scoop all the good green stuff into a food processor. Add remaining ingredients and purée until it reaches the texture you desire.
