Avocado Quesadillas

Quesadillas are yummy, but they can get boring after a while.  Add a bit of color and flavor to yours by adding some avocados, which are both healthy and delicious.  Also, since the superbowl is this weekend, avocados are going to be on the best sale of the year (or darn close).  I price-matched some just last night for 39 cents each.  So buy some avocados at amazing prices and eat them up in an avocado quesadilla.

Avocado Quesadillas

*Yields 4 quesadillas

8 tortillas
1 can refried beans
2 avocados, thinly sliced or mashed (I find it's usually just easier to mash them, but it gives it a little bit of texture if you use slices instead.  Also, if you really like the avocado, use a whole avocado for each quesadilla)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or more...)
2 Tbsp cooking oil
Sour Cream & Salsa to taste (optional)

1. Grab two tortillas.  Spread one tortilla with 1/4 of the can of refried beans.  Evenly spread the 1/2 of one avocado on top of the beans.  Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheddar cheese on top, then finish it off with the second tortilla.
2. Repeat with the other tortillas to make a total of 4 quesadillas.
3. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat.  Heat one tortilla at a time, flipping once, until the cheese is melted and the tortilla begins browning.
4. Crack open the sour cream and salsa, and eat your heart out.  Then go buy more avocados while they're still on sale.
