How to Make Savoury Avocado Quesadillas

  • Place the flours and salt in a bowl.
  • In a blender, process the avocado, mint and jalapeno until you have a fairly fine paste.
  • Use water if needed to keep the blender blades running.
  • Make an indent in the flour and pour in the avocado puree.
  • Knead it in with your fingers.
  • Add more water if needed to get a smooth dough.
  • Place it in an airtight box and set it aside for at least half an hour.
  • Tomato Chutney: spray a skillet with oil.
  • Add the onions and the sugar and saute until they start to soften and brown spots appear.
  • Add tomatoes and the chipotle chilly and sauce.
  • Stir well and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the juice from the tomatoes evaporates completely.
  • Turn off the heat and add the chopped cilantro.
