The Tik-Tok Quesadilla Craze
TikTok is a video-sharing social networking service used to make a variety of short-form videos, from genres like dance, comedy, and – you guess it – food. The videos have a duration from fifteen seconds to one minute, allowing people to share bits and pieces of information, tutorials, and food recipe how-to’s. One quick search and you’ll quickly see that you can find just about anything on this platform… including recipes for any diet and taste bud.
If you don’t have TikTok, don’t worry. I’m giving you the low down on this amazing recipe down below.
How to get that perfect TikTok Fold:
Step 1: Cut the tortillas.
This is where the genius magic happens. Typically you would place ingredients on half of a tortilla, fold it once and cook. However, this recipe takes the fold to a whole new level.
- Start by laying the tortilla flat.
- Cut one slit toward the center of the tortilla.
- This cut allows you to flip one side over the other.
- The result will be a layered triangle.
Step 2: Add the fillings.
- Now that you have four quarters (because of the slit made in the previous step), add some shredded cheese on two of them (on opposite sides).
- Add some tomato over one side and some onion to the other side.
- Add some guacamole in the triangles that remain empty and place some black beans on top.
Step 3: Fold.
- Starting with the slit side, flip one triangle over the next one clockwise.
- Do this until all side have been folded onto and you have a perfect little triangle.
Step 4: Cook.
- All there is to do now is add some butter to a skillet and once melted, cook each quesadilla from both sides. Easy peasy!
- Now it’s time to enjoy your yummy guacamole quesadillas!
Helpful Cooking Tips:
- Cheese Choice: Experiment with various cheeses like cheddar, pepper jack, or goat cheese for unique flavor profiles.
- Protein Boost: Enhance the protein content by adding grilled chicken, sautéed shrimp, or seasoned tofu for a heartier meal.
- Veggie Delight: Load up on veggies by including sautéed bell peppers, mushrooms, or spinach.
- Spice It Up: For a kick of heat, sprinkle some crushed red pepper flakes or diced jalapeños into the filling mixture.
- Classic Salsa: Serve with traditional tomato salsa for a refreshing contrast to the creamy guacamole.
- Sriracha Mayo: Create a spicy sriracha mayo by mixing sriracha sauce with mayonnaise for a zesty kick.
- Avocado Ranch: Combine mashed avocado with ranch dressing for a creamy and tangy dip.
- Greek Yogurt Tzatziki: Prepare a cooling tzatziki sauce using Greek yogurt, cucumber, dill, and garlic, adding a Mediterranean flair.
- Lime-Cilantro Crema: Make a zesty lime-cilantro crema by blending sour cream, fresh lime juice, and chopped cilantro for a burst of flavor.
