This dead simple quesadilla and guacamole combo is a great example of the power of a single spice. A lightly flavoured cheese allows the roasted cumin to stand out, while the smoky heat of chile Pasilla elegantly elevates a basic guacamole.
You can also make a full-sized quesadilla by placing the two tortillas on top of each other, but be careful for escaping melted cheese.
Slice the avocado in two, remove the seed, and squeeze the flesh into a medium bowl. Add the juice, salt, ground chile, and garlic.
Smash and blend with a fork until it is your desired consistency.
Set aside (cover in plastic if you plan to wait more than 20 minutes so it does not brown).
Place ½ of the sliced cheese on one of the tortillas. Sprinkle on 1 tsp. cumin and fold the tortilla in half.
Heat oil in a large pan on medium-high. Add the folded quesadilla and fry for about 2 minutes on each side, until crispy.
Repeat for the second tortilla.
