This recipe was really delicious and my whole entire family enjoyed it! I changed it a little bit by using guacamole instead of avocado. I did this because it was faster prep time and I can get dinner on the table faster.

This recipe is quick and easy to prepare. The quesadillas taste delicious. Even the carnivores in the family didn't seem to notice the lack of meat! This recipe is a keeper and will be filed under "quick & easy" and subtitled "yummy."

The avocado is not overly noticeable, which is a benefit for non-avocado-lovers, but it adds a nice creaminess. I added a sprinkle of ground beef crumbles (cooked!) in each one. I would make it again.
