Quesadillas strike again! You already know we love Mexican food and especially these little folded and fried parcels of goodness, and so while we enjoy pumpkin month over on Vine, we just had to give these a go. I first found the recipe which inspired this meal over on The Kitchn, and it was definitely not something I could just click past. I mean, I seriously love three things: good cheese, quesadillas, and pumpkin. What wasn’t to like?
In terms of playing around with the recipe, we didn’t include the cilantro/coriander as we just didn’t feel it was necessary. We used a red onion as we always do instead of a yellow one, and I only put the chilli pepper into J’s food (he’s actually growing his own now, which he’s fairly proud about!). We also didn’t make the yoghurt – we just wanted to try these on their own.
It has to be said that they are absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to eat them again as the way it all blends together was just beautiful. The mozzarella goes so nicely with the rest of the pumpkin flavour and I’d love to play around with this recipe some more to see what happens.
Here’s the Vine of us making these delicious quesadillas:
