There’s nothing that I love more than a spicy aioli and this one tastes exactly like the sauce they put on the Cheesy Gordita Crunch at Taco Bell. (A guilty pleasure of mine, don’t judge.) When I made these Mini Avocado Cheese Quesadillas I was expecting them to be a big hit with Zelda. What I didn’t see coming was how much I was going to love them. Seriously, these are the most delicious little snack. Definitely get the rustic cut cheese, I’m not sure why but it makes such a big difference in how it tastes. These take about 10-15 minutes to make, which makes them an after school dream! What’s your favorite easy meal to make your babes? Tell me in the comments below.

Mini Cheese & Avocado Quesadillas

The perfect after school bite!

  • Cilantro- 1/2 tablespoon
  • Lime Juice- 2 tablespoons
  • Avocado- 1, thinly sliced
  • Mexican Cheese- 1/2 cup
  • Butter- 2 tablespoons, melted
  • Mayonnaise- 1/2 cup
  • Flour Street Taco Shells- 1 pack
  • Cayenne Pepper- 1 tablespoon
  • Chili Powder- 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt- 1/4 teaspoon
  1. To make the spicy aioli, mix together the mayo, lime juice, and spices; set aside.
  2. Brush one side of a tortilla with melted butter and brush the other side with the spicy aioli.
  3. On the side with the aioli, sprinkle cheese on one half, layer with avocado slices and then fold.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium heat and place the quesadilla in the pan. Allow to cook for about 2-3 minutes and then flip.
  5. Allow the other side to cook for 2-3 minutes and remove from the heat; set aside.
  6. Repeat this process until you have the desired number of quesadillas.
  7. Serve to your family!
