This mini quesadilla recipe is perfect for after school snacking. Because, really, nothing happens until the afternoon snack is consumed. There is no homework, no room cleaning, no playtime...nothing. This is not by my design, but rather on adamant insistence of my two boys (M and T). If it's not one or two things from 50 Healthy Snacks...100 Calories or Less, then it's popcorn for T and cereal for M. The popcorn, of course, always requires a quality control check by me. It's a mother's duty, after all.

Now that we're in California avocado season (happy dance!), it's high time that we start whipping up some simple snacks using the creamy fruit. M and T would love to dive into half an avocado with nothing but a spoon each and every day, but dear old Mum thought it was time to shake things up a bit. Of course, guacamole or avocado toast are always great options, but this mini quesadilla recipe kept sneaking into my mind.

I first made mini quesadillas (with Brie and pear!) for a co*cktail party, but starting thinking that their bite-sized appeal made them perfect for snacktime.

Since there is always hummus (see more recipes) in our fridge, it only seemed right to spice it up with a little cumin and fresh cilantro, and spread it on the tortilla rounds.

For the rounds, I used a 3 ½-inch round cookie cutter, but the rim of a glass and a sharp knife would work just as well.

Queso fresco is any easy cheese to crumble over the hummus and avocado, but Monterey Jack would work just as well. As long as there's cheese, life is good!

You may need to cook the quesadillas in two batches, depending on the size of your skillet.

Each quesadilla is only 66 calories and rich with healthy fats, which means that you can dig in without guilt.

The kids loved this mini quesadilla recipe for snack time, and now I'm thinking they would be even better when washed down with a Strawberry Tom Collins co*cktail or a Kicked-Up Avocado Margarita. We'll just call that adult snack time.

    I made these for a tea party my family had for fun in quarantine and they were delicious! Everyone loved them! We even added some chicken into some of the quesadillas and that was delicious too!
