Emeril's Three Cheese Quesadillas with Kicked Up Guacamole


2 avocados peeled, pitted and chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped red onions
  juice of 1 lime
1 to 2 jalapeño or Serrano peppers, seeded and minced (to taste)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
  freshly ground black pepper
Dash Emeril's Kick It Up Red Pepper Sauce
Four 10" tortillas
3/4 cup grated pepper jack cheese
3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
3/4 cup grated mild cheddar cheese
1 small can chopped green chiles, drained
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  salsa for serving (optional)

Cooking Instructions

In a mixing bowl, add the avocados. Using a fork, slightly mash the avocados. Add half of the onion, lime juice jalapeño pepper and garlic. Mix thoroughly.

Season the mixture with salt, pepper and hot sauce to taste. Sprinkle 1/2 of each cheese over the top of two individual tortillas and sprinkle with the drained chilies, remaining onion and cilantro. Top the tortillas with the remaining two tortillas.

Preheat the Emerilware Quesadilla Pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil and, when hot, gently lay a quesadilla in the hot oil and pan-fry for about two minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom.

Using a pastry brush, brush the top of the quesadilla with one teaspoon of the remaining oil then turn and cook on the second side until golden brown, about two minutes longer. Remove the quesadilla from the pan and repeat the cooking process for the remaining quesadilla.

Serve the quesadillas with salsa, sour cream and guacamole.

Serves 4.
