No Cheese Avocado Quesadilla

Are you looking for a healthier version of your favorite mexican dish of quesadillas? Or maybe you're lactose intolerant and can't eat the cheesy quesadillas that so many others love? Well, I have found the perfect solution. These No Cheese Avocado Quesadillas are my new favorite go to for lunch and dinner when I'm craving mexican. I like to pair it with some mexican yellow rice, cauliflower rice, or even a super tasty spinach salad. This recipe is Vegan and gluten-free (with gluten free tortillas). Plus you can add all kinds of different extras with the avocado to make it even tastier. 

No Cheese Avocado Quesadilla
Serves: 1


  • 1/2 Avocado (more if you prefer)
  • 1 large tortilla or 2 small tortillas
  • 1 small roma tomato, diced
  • Seasonings of choice: Paprika, Cumin, Garlic Powder, etc.
  • Optional Toppings: Spinach, Black Beans, Chicken, Green Chiles, etc.


  1. Smash avocado and spread out on one half of the tortilla. Sprinkle with any seasonings. {I like a pinch of garlic powder and cumin in mine.} 
  2. Add diced tomato and any other desired toppings.
  3. Fold over the top half of the tortilla and place on a non-stick skillet over medium heat. 
  4. Heat for 1-2 minutes per side until warmed through.
  5. Enjoy! I like to dip mine in Salsa.
