If you are in the mood to make something different, what about trying some peanut butter quesadillas? The following recipe is one of our very easy Mexican-style desserts and there are only 4 ingredients, making it an excellent recipe for newcomers to the world of cooking. This is a child-friendly recipe and the jelly for dipping makes it fun for them to eat. It is also a crowd-pleaser of a snack, so whether you want to make it for breakfast, lunch, as a snack or dessert, it is always well received and everyone will love the warm peanut butter oozing out of the golden tortillas.
Quesadillas are very similar to sandwiches but to make the dish more Mexican, bread is replaced with flour tortillas for a Mexican recipe feel and the butter helps to crisp up the outside of the tortillas. This is one of our quick Mexican dessert recipes because you can make it from start to finish as few as 5 minutes. A quesadilla recipe is traditionally tortillas filled with cheese and then cooked on the stove until the cheese melts, but swap the cheese for peanut butter and you will have a brand new take on this beloved dish.
There are lots of different quesadilla recipes actually ranging from the classic ones like cheese and ham or cheese and onion, to meat or poultry options, ones where the cheese is teamed with apple or pear, or even fusion cuisine quesadillas like this one. Because pretty much any filling goes with a tortilla, the only limit is your imagination and you might find you prefer quesadillas to sandwiches and cannot wait to experiment further with fillings. Try a classic quesadilla with Mexican cheese or see how you like corn tortillas (although flour ones are more common in this recipe). Continue reading
Technically quesadillas are Tex-Mex instead of an authentic Mexican dish but this recipe for banana quesadillas is far too good to omit from our Mexican dessert recipes collection! You might have tried a baked quesadillas recipe but the follow recipe is made on the stove and that is a simpler way of making banana quesadillas. You can serve them with dulce de leche or another kind of caramel syrup. Banana quesadillas are the perfect Mexican dessert recipe for anyone who loves bananas. Kids also love these tasty quesadillas, either as a dessert or for breakfast or a snack.
It is much easier to convince the kids to eat one of these gorgeous hot quesadillas than to get them interested in a piece of fresh fruit, so go ahead and make this. You can even add a sliced kiwi, some pineapple or another kind of fruit. Anything goes with the banana. Peach or apricot would also do well in there. Once you have made one quesadilla recipe you will realize how simple they are to make and want to experiment with more fillings, flavors and ingredients, to come up with brand new quesadilla recipes of your own.
In the following recipe the bananas are mashed with cream cheese and sugar, and not only does this combine the flavors for an even result, but it also produces a sticky ‘paste’ which will hold the tortillas together. In the traditional quesadilla recipe the cheese melts and that is what holds the 2 halves of the tortilla together but here we are using cream cheese which is different, so mashing the ingredients is what you need to do. If you want to add other fruit or preserves, simply add those on top of the banana mixture before closing the tortillas. Continue reading
Although there will always be a place for thick, rich Mexican sauces, such as mole sauce which goes with chicken or turkey, or some kind of spicy chili sauce that is heavenly with beef or pork, there is also a place for thinner, lighter sauces, especially when you want the emphasis to be on the dish itself instead of on the sauce. Take burritos for example. If you are serving something with so many delicious ingredients and flavors inside and you just want the sauce to accompany rather than overwhelm, you will be looking for something lighter and more delicate than what you might normally opt for.
Although you can swap the chicken bouillon in the recipe for beef bouillon, that will offer a darker color and a richer taste, so we usually use chicken bouillon to keep the flavor light. A little flour is helpful for thickening up the gravy and because this one simmers for a while before serving, we use all-purpose flour instead of cornstarch. If you want to use cornstarch instead that is fine. All-purpose flour needs to be cooked else you will taste the ‘floury’ flavor and that is not what we want to happen here, we just want to thicken the sauce up very slightly. If you want it the consistency of water, leave out the flour altogether.
While the chicken bouillon and flour are the main 2 ingredients in the gravy, we still wish to give it a south of the border flavor, and we are doing that by including white wine and a touch of cumin in there. If you want you can add a little tequila and/or a few drops of hot sauce. That is optional though, so if you do not have any, do not worry about it. Black pepper is also fine but white pepper will be invisible in the finished sauce rather than looking like little black ‘specks’ in there. To keep the focus on the main dish, keep the sauce as light and simple as you can. Continue reading
