You know that feeling when you slice open an avocado and it’s utterly perfect? I can’t think of another food that gives me the same buzz! It can be super tricky to time an avocado to peak perfection, but luckily you don’t have to do that in this recipe for Spicy Avocado Vegan Quesadillas. Why? It’s actually a good thing if your avocado is a little on the ripe and mushy side! Round up your squishiest avocado and let’s make some flamin’ hot vegan quesadillas.
To be clear, I don’t want you to use a spoiled or rotten avocado for this vegan quesadilla recipe. I’m just saying it doesn’t need to be flawless! It’s going to be smashed between two tortillas and mushed together with a big spoonful of Sriracha Cheddar Cheeze Spread and you won’t know the difference once it’s all put together.
If you’re not into spicy foods, you can still make these Spicy Vegan Avocado Quesadillas. Just reduce the jalapeño, used pickled jalapeño (I think it’s less spicy), or leave it off all together. The flavor in the Sriracha Cheddar Cheeze Spread lends just a hint of heat, perfect for those with sensitive palates.
While the jalapeño is totally negotiable, two things that aren’t are a squeeze of fresh lime juice and some salsa verde for dipping. They offer so much tangy, zesty flavor. I can’t get enough! These Spicy Avocado Vegan Quesadillas make a quick and easy weekday lunch or easy breezy dinner. Let me know if you make them by tagging @plant_perks on Instagram!
