These little quesadillas from Cookin' Canuck make a great snack, side dish or even dinner. This is what Elisa and I had for dinner tonight. They are easy to throw together and taste super good! I used street taco tortillas (which are small) instead of cutting the regular-sized tortillas. They're pretty cute and make this recipe even easier, although they aren't whole wheat.
Mini Avocado and Hummus Quesadillas
4 whole wheat tortillas
¼ c. hummus
¼ t. ground cumin
1 T. minced cilantro
½ California avocado, cut into 12 slices
1 ½ oz. crumbled queso fresco
a 2½-inch circle cookie cutter (or a glass with a 3½-inch circumference
and a small knife), cut 3 circles from each tortilla.
In a small bowl, stir together the hummus, cumin and cilantro.
1 teaspoon of the hummus mixture on each tortilla circle. Divide the
avocado slices and queso fresco evenly between the quesadillas,
arranging them on one half of the tortilla circles.
a large skillet over medium heat. Place several quesadillas in the pan
and cook until the tortillas are golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Repeat with the remaining quesadillas. Serve.
