Avocado Quesadillas n' Dip

I had the opportunity to try out 2 new recipes that are available on the website Avocados from Mexico. They sent me the recipes and 6 perfect avocados and by "perfect" I mean DELICIOUS!! You MUST check out their website because they have so much info about avocados, great recipes and even a coloring page for the kids.

The first recipe I tried was Avocados Quesadillas n'Dip.

Avocado Quesadillas n' Dip

1 fully ripened avocado from Mexico, halved, pitted and peeled
1/3 cup prepared ranch salad dressing
4 (6-inch) flour tortillas, any flavor
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup corn kernels
Raw veggies

Chop half of the avocado.

To prepare Avocado Dip: In bowl of food processor, combine chopped avocado with ranch dressing; process until smooth; transfer to small serving bowl; set aside.

Cut remaining half of the avocado into 8 slices. Heat skillet over medium heat; place one tortilla in skillet; heat until warm, about 30 seconds. Turn tortilla over, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the cheese on half of the tortilla; heat until cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Remove from skillet.

Place 1 tablespoon corn and 2 slices avocado on top of cheese; fold other half of tortilla over avocado; press the edge together. Remove to serving plate; cut into thirds. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Serve warm with reserved Avocado Dip and raw veggies, if desired.

This recipe was super yum and SO easy to make! I made quesadillas for 3 people in under 10 minutes. I also did not have any Monterey Jack cheese so I used cheddar on a few and White American cheese on the others. It was so good!!
