Mozzarella Avocado Quesadillas (for my little one)

My little guy is one adventurous eater.   For lunch today I made a simple quesadilla for him.  He’s a BIG fan of avocado (it was one of his first foods) so I wanted to work it into a quesadilla for him.  I took one medium Mission flour tortilla

and placed it on a skillet on medium high.  On one half of the tortilla I  put  some shredded mozzarella cheese and on the other half I spread a bit of ripe Hass avocado.  I sprinkled the whole thing with a bit of ground cumin (for that southwest taste).  I also cut of some shelled edamame into a real small dice and put that on top of the cheese once it was melted.  Then I folded the tortilla in half and cooked until the tortilla was a little bit browned and crisp.  I cut into 4 triangles, just the right size for my toddler’s lil fingers 🙂  He gobbled it up!  And since he only ate 3 of the pieces this mama enjoyed one as well.  Simple lunch or snack for grown ups too!

With some fresh striped bass in the fridge, it was screaming to become fish tacos.  I love the texture of warm crispy beer battered fish rolled up in a soft flour tortilla.  I made a beer batter with flour, adobo, cracked black pepper, some chili powder, and a nice crisp cold beer all whisked up waiting for fish to be bathed in it.  I popped a pan of oil on the stove to get hot while I prepped the toppings.  Roma tomatoes seeded & chopped;  Hass avocado sliced with lime juice on it; shredded cabbage; and a dressing made from sour cream, juice of 1/2 lime, and chopped fresh cilantro.  Layer it up any way you like *make your own tacos are always fun*.  This time I rolled them up burrito style to contain the juiciness.
