Vegan Quesadillas with Chunky Salsa
There was a time I didn't like Mexican Cuisine. More like, I never really bothered trying it out unless it was nachos, molten cheese and salsa at the movies.
All that changed somehow, when I moved to Canada. It's so funny how I started discovering and appreciating various cuisines only after I moved here from Dubai. I'm not trying to say I don't like it. Let me tell you... I FRICKIN LOVE THE EXPOSURE.
In a way I feel so lucky to be able to explore and enjoy a multitude of cuisines that I probably never would've been interested in trying if I didn't move here. I think it's got to do with your mindset (externally and internally) and environment.
But anyway, I enjoy Mexican food, especially since there are quite a few similarities with Indian and Middle Eastern foods; but each has their own uniqueness and taste. I bet you agree.
So, my boyfriend and I really enjoy Mexican food (he makes fantastic tacos de pollo con pico de gallo y salsa verde). One Friday evening, where we usually watch The Originals, we decided to make some quesadillas. I was so excited!
At first I thought they would turn out a little to dry, but then we had a jar of chunky salsa in the fridge that ended up complimenting our quesadillas beautifully! I was busy enjoying the food over The Originals! :p It was sheer goodness.
You take your quesadilla, dip it in your chunky salsa and scoop some out. When you take a bite, you have a pop of flavors, along with a delicate crunch from biting into the pan cooked tortilla... and a mildly spicy aftertaste lingers around. That's sexy.
At this point, maybe I sound a little loco, but it is true! It's just something you have to eat to know.
What's even better is that it was insanely easy to make, too! This took us literally 15-20 minutes to make, and it was just SO WORTH IT. I loved it so much, I craved it the next week, and the week after. But like I've said before; I try not to make those too often because I don't want to get sick of it haha!
Now, its your turn to try it out and describe how lip smackingly delicious it was.
