Potato Quesadilla


The other night it was cool outside, so I wanted something that would be filling for dinner. Something that would "stick to my ribs" as we used to say. I almost always have potatoes in the pantry and I was thinking about a baked potato for dinner. Then I saw the two perfectly ripe avocados in the bowl on the counter. Ummmm how to marry potatoes and avocado? I decided to bake the potato in the microwave. Ok, that part was done... now what? A little olive oil and butter into the frying pan. I sliced the potato into 1/4 inch slices and browned them in the pan until they were golden brown. I had some left over salsa (here is the link on my blog)


I heated a flour tortilla over the gas flame so much easier than getting out a pan, topped it with the salsa, placed the potato slices on top with Mexican grated cheeses, topped with fresh guacamole, and fresh cilantro. It was delicious. I decided that for breakfast it would be perfect with the addition of chorizo sausage or bacon and eggs included in the mix! I'll have to try it for breakfast one weekend.

Not really giving the measurements here as one medium size baking potato is more than enough for one tortilla. Also, you can use an amount of salsa to your taste as well as guacamole.
