Hummus Quesadillas


There aren’t many meals easier than quesadillas, they really are an excellent “quick, I’m in a rush” meal.

They also make a great snack, appetizer and potluck-approved dish.

These Hummus Quesadillas put a fun spin on this delicious classic.

When we created this recipe we had every intention of making a traditional, cheesy, Mexican quesadillas. But then we decided we wanted something a little bit different.

From a strange craving, these Hummus Quesadillas were born.

Our Hummus Quesadillas pack a ton of protein and tons of important vitamins. As delicious as they are, they can be eaten guilt-free.

This recipe recommends using bell peppers and onions, but feel free to explore and throw in whatever you have in your kitchen – why not try adding some sun-dried tomatoes or zucchini?! We may have to try that next… Let us know what you think!

Servings: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper Diced
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper Diced
  • 1/2 Red Onion Diced
  • 4 Whole Wheat Tortillas Medium size
  • 2 Avocados Very ripe
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 batch Garlic Hummus
Instructions
  1. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a medium-sized pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Once olive oil is heated, add bell peppers and onion to the pan. Sautee for 5 minutes, or until the onions becomes translucent and the bell peppers are slightly softened.
  3. Peel avocados, remove the pit and add to a bowl. Using a fork, mash the avocados until they become spreadable.
  4. Place a medium size pan on the stove, and bring to a medium heat.
  5. On a tortilla, using a knife cover one entire side with garlic hummus. Next, on half of the hummus covered side spread ¼ of your avocado mixture onto the tortilla.
  6. On the avocado side of the tortilla sprinkle on ¼ of the bell pepper and onion mixture along with ¼ teaspoon paprika.
  7. Fold the tortillas in half, so the veggie avocado mixture is on the bottom. Lightly oil each side of the tortilla and place on the preheated pan.
  8. After a few minute check to see if the bottom is a golden brown and flip to brown the other side.
  9. Quesadillas are done when both sides are golden brown.
  10. Repeat steps 5 through 8 on the remainder of the tortillas.
  11. Serve with extra hummus for dipping & enjoy!
