First, the binders. Yes, you may simply bind your quesadillas with melted cheese, however refried beans, mashed candy potato, and mashed avocado are enjoyable, wholesome, vegan-friendly alternate options. Spread a skinny layer onto your tortilla earlier than including the fillings (see the images beneath).

Her Tomatillo Salsa is vibrant and tangy, and her Chipotle Tomato Salsa is wealthy and smoky. I haven’t tried her Guacamole Starter but, however I pictured it right here anyway as a result of you should purchase these three as a set at Williams Sonoma. So good, (option to go Gaby!)
