Oh yeah, we have avocado quesadillas at least once a week around here, adding other things like chicken or shredded zucchini. Kimchi is brilliant!
Yikes! Was thinking about making my own kimchi. Looked at David Lebovich’s recipe at your link. Even a half recipe would be too much to use up in the recommended 3 weeks. (It keeps on fermenting until it is not good.). Either the world’s smallest Chinese cabbage or a bottle of good commercial kimchi appears to be in my future.
We just had kimchi on eggs-in-a-frame last night! And I agree; it’s unexpectedly good with cheese.
Our family loves kimchi quesadillas. Cooking the kimchi with butter like you did here, Elise, or with some pork/pork belly the way my mom did mellows out the flavor of the kimchi and makes it a great quesadilla filling or the beginnings of a delicious fried rice too. I need to credit Joanne Choi of Weekofmenus for first giving me the idea. http://weekofmenus.blogspot.com/2009/09/kimchee-quesadillas-another-one-that.html
I always put avocado on quesadillas. (We eat at least 1/2 an avocado each day. So good!) Have never eaten kimchi, but this sounds very good. Chicken would be a terrific addition, Laura.
This week we had two separate quesadilla lunches, using up leftovers from restaurant fajitas. Meats and sauteed peppers and onions on a cheese-covered flour tortilla. Avocado was the perfect fresh addition. And some chunky salsa. And sour cream on top.
Trader Joe’s has wonderful flour tortillas – big ones, perfect for quesadillas. So flakey when used for quesadillas.
Thanks for a new idea!
This is actually great idea how to smuggle kimchi into a family meal! I am a huge fan of kimchi, and knowing that it is natural probiotic contributing health benefits in a similar way as yogurt as a dairy probiotic I keep trying to introduce it to my family diet, but usually they leave it on the plate if I offer it separately.
These dillas just popped up on my Facebook feed last night making me very hungry! You know, I have never put an avocado on a dilla before and I have no clue why. But it’s the cabbage that really surprised me. Think I might throw a bit of chicken on these but they look better than a Food Truck dinner and that’s the highest compliment I can pay, Ha.
