Pico de gallo or salsa
For the avocado mash
For the quesadillas
Put the avocado in small bowl and mash using a fork, then add a dash of kosher salt and squeeze the juice of half a lime. Keep on mashing the avocado until the consistency gets a little chunky but still spreadable, then set aside.
In a large pan, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil then set the heat to medium. Then, add the chopped red onion and stir until the onion has softened. Add the salt,cumin,oregano and coriander then stir until the onions are perfectly overspread.
Then, add bell pepper and mix, let it cook for 3 minutes. When the peppers start to soften, add the lime juice and black beans and mix together. Let it cook for another 2 minutes to warm the black beans through.
In an Airfryer oven, set the heat over medium high heat. Add 1 flour tortilla then let it heat up in Airfryer oven for a few minutes. When you see a couple of bubbles welling up in the center of the tortilla, use tongs to flip the tortilla over and repeat the process for the other side.
To assemble the quesadilla, add a layer of quesadilla to the tortilla, then add avocado and cheese. After perfectly layering, fold the tortilla over to seal the quesadilla. The cook for about 2-3 minutes per side, until the tortilla starts to be crispy and melted the cheese. Repeat the process for other quesidillas.
To serve the quesidillas, cut it into triangular portions and add on with sour cream, avocado, and pico de gallo.
