Avocado Quesadillas

Avocado Quesadillas
Makes 4 servings
Time: 10 minutes

2 avocados
4 teaspoons lemon or lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons butter
4 tortillas
1 cup grated white cheddar (Another cheese to try is mozzarella, whose stretchiness when melted is a great counterpoint to the creamy avocado. It’s on our list to try!)

Mash the avocados with the lemon or lime juice and the salt.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Lay the tortilla down and sprinkle the cheddar across the surface. Cook until the cheese is melted and the bottom of the tortilla is deeply golden. Quickly spread 1/4 of the avocado mixture across one half of the tortilla. Turn off the heat and fold the tortilla in half, pressing down so the melted cheese glues it together. Repeat for other tortillas.
Cut into wedges and serve immediately.
