Avocado Quesadilla (AIP/ Paleo/ Whole30)

Avocado Quesadilla AIP Paleo Whole30

I’m always looking for creative ways to jazz up my meal-time staples. I love avocados. They are a delicious healthy fat and are a really good source of fiber, so they are great for helping to stabilize blood sugar & promote satiety at meal time. Sometimes I get bored of eating plain mashed or sliced avocado, so I decided on Saturday afternoon to experiment with an AIP Avocado Quesadilla. Let me tell you… I was freaking out at how tasty this thing was!

I haven’t had anything that tasted like a quesadilla since my pre-AIP college days when I would gorge myself on all the free chips and salsa at our local Mexican restaurant. The mashed avocado helps to hold the quesadilla together while giving it that fatty, unctuous, creaminess that’s traditional in this cheesy-classic with a crispy, crunchy shell.

This recipe would make a great appetizer, after-school snack, or side-side to serve with this AIP Chicken Chili!

Avocado Quesadilla (AIP/ Paleo/ Whole30)

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cook Time: 8 Minutes

Serves: 1


1 Avocado

The juice of half a lime

1 TBS chopped cilantro

1 tsp salt

2 cassava flour tortillas (I like these pre-made ones by Siete Foods or for fully AIP-compliant, check out this recipe)

1 TBS coconut or avocado oil


In a small bowl, mash together the avocado, lime juice, cilantro and salt. If adding in a protein, mix that together with the avocado. Spread the mixture between the two tortillas and heat the coconut or avocado oil in a skillet to medium heat. Once hot, carefully place the quesadilla in the pan and fry for about 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. 

Allow to cool and then eat alone or serve with AIP Chicken Chili!
