Nacho Quesadilla

vegan quesadilla
Yes, I do love my cheezly....I didn't really want to do too many posts requiring specific ingredients that a lot of people probably can't buy, like this nacho flavour cheezly. However, any vegan cheese could be used here, I usually just use the super melting edam or mozza anyway. This one isn't super melting but doesn't matter - it melts beautifully. When I first got it I made nachos with it prepared to put up with un-melted cheeze on top but it did indeed melt and made very good nachos.....which got me thinking about making a nacho flavoured quesadilla. I love quesadilla's and would have them quite often in my dairy eating days, so glad cheezly works in these! No hard and fast recipe here and of course you can put whatever you like in a quesadilla but the nacho flavours work really well.

1 large wrap (I find using 2 wraps makes just too much, although I know that's more traditional!)
1/2 avocado, mashed
40g nacho flavour cheezly, grated
1 spring onion, finely chopped
1 red chilli, finely chopped
1/4 red pepper, finely chopped
10g black olives
vegan sour cream to serve - also serve with salsa, I added extra chillies in mine to make it spicier so I wouldn't need salsa as I've recently discovered just how much salt is in those jars - shocking!

Place the wrap on a non-stick frying pan and spread half with the avocado, top with everything else then heat up the pan. When the wrap is warm and softer fold over and cook until both sides are golden, crisp and the cheeze is melted. Cut into triangles and serve with sour cream and salsa.


  1. This looks so nice! We always have Cheezly Melting Gouda in the house, but I don't have an avocado! I'll buy one tomorrow and make this. But actually, I want it NOW!

  2. Mmm! I have had a roll of Cheezly mozzarella in the fridge for a few months, I should make these and use it up!

    And thanks for the well wishes :)

  3. I have just bought my first block of cheezly edam cheese yesterday! I am sooo excited to try this :)
    Thanks for sharing
