Veggie Quesadillas

22 May

Veggie-Quesadilla-1

This week has totally gotten away from me. We’re showing our condo and it’s really hard to cook when you have people visiting your house all evening! These veggie quesadillas are a quick and delicious meal when you don’t have a lot of time to cook, wash and put away the dishes before someone comes over. I used the same spice mixture from my fajita recipe, sprinkled some chihuahua cheese on top, threw them on the Griddler and had a great meal before I knew it!

Veggie-Quesadilla-2

Ingredients:
1 large red pepper, cut into strips
1 large yellow pepper, cut into strips
1 large orange pepper, cut into strips
1 onion, cut into half moons
8 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 tbsp turmeric
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp coriander
1 tsp cayenne pepper
4 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Ezekiel 4:9 tortillas
1/2 cup shredded chihuahua cheese
Sour cream and guacamole (optional)

Directions:

  1. Combine 3 tbsp of oil with the turmeric, cumin, coriander and cayenne pepper and stir to form a paste.
  2. Add the peppers and onions to the spice mixture and toss until peppers and onion are well coated.
  3. Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the spiced peppers and onions to the pan and saute until soft. Once they are soft, add the mushrooms and saute for another 3 minutes.
  4. Turn the Griddler to high or heat a pan over medium heat.
  5. Fill half a tortilla with the vegetable mixture, sprinkle with cheese and fold in half.
  6. If using the Griddler: Place the folded tortilla on the Griddler, close the top and cook until cheese has melted.
  7. If using a pan: Place the folded tortilla on the pan (you may need to hold the top down) and cook until the tortilla is golden brown on the bottom. Flip the tortilla over and cook until the cheese has melted.
  8. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  9. As always, enjoy!

Veggie Fajitas with Homemade Guacamole

18 Mar

Guacamole

I am a fajita connoisseur. If there are fajitas on a menu, you can bet your last buck that I’m ordering them. Needless to say, this is hands down my favorite recipe. Not only is it knock your socks off delicious, but it’s incredibly easy to make. Add in some homemade guacamole and you’re good to go!

Veggie-Fajita

If you choose to add chicken to the fajitas, I used to marinate the chicken in the spice mixture instead of the veggies. I would saute the veggies, grill the marinated chicken and toss them together at the end.

For the Fajitas:
Ingredients:
1 large red pepper, cut into strips
1 large yellow pepper, cut into strips
1 large orange pepper, cut into strips
1 onion, cut into half moons
8 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 tbsp turmeric
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp coriander
1 tsp cayenne pepper
4 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Ezekiel 4:9 tortillas
Shredded monterey jack cheese
Serve with Sour cream and guacamole

Directions:

  1. Combine 3 tbsp of oil with the turmeric, cumin, coriander and cayenne pepper and stir to form a paste.
  2. Add the peppers and onions to the spice mixture and toss until peppers and onion are well coated.
  3. Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the spiced peppers and onions to the pan and saute until soft. Once they are soft, add the mushrooms and saute for another 3 minutes.
  4. Serve with sour cream, guacamole and cheese.

For the Guacamole:
Ingredients:
4 ripe avocados
1/8 cup diced tomatoes, seeded
1/8 cup diced red onion
1 tbsp lime juice
salt to taste
cilantro (optional)

Directions:

  1. Scoop out the avocados into a bowl and mash with a fork.
  2. Add the tomatoes, onions, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper and combine well.

As always, enjoy!
