Chocolate Quesadilla Recipe – An easy, quick, chocolatey, warm and delicious dessert quesadillas!
What is chocolate quesadilla?
Quesadilla, a Mexican dish, is a Tortilla (Mexican corn or wheat flatbread) filled with a savory vegetable filling and cheese and cooked on a griddle. I usually make Quesadillas with different types of fillings such as black beans, vegetables, mushrooms, and lentils. Now, when I walked into a Tacobell in Madrid, I expected to see only this on the menu. Much to my surprise, I saw the dessert variation of Quesadilla and that really surprised me. At first, I thought it is one of those made-up dishes that didn’t make much sense. However, I was proved wrong immediately after I took a bite. It was irresistible and I couldn’t stop myself from making it at home the same night.
Chocolate Quesadillas are also called Chocodillas in Tacobell and they are warm, quick, delicious, rich and don’t take many ingredients like other desserts.
Moreover, dark chocolate is one of my favorite snacking additives as it is iron-rich and delicious at the same time. That’s not always the case with other iron-rich foods.
Is it vegan?
If you are vegan, simply use vegan dark chocolate and skip using butter for roasting the tortillas or use coconut oil or olive oil for roasting. This recipe is vegan as I haven’t used butter here.
Can I use chocolate chips?
Absolutely. chocolate chips would work well for this recipe.
They taste best when served warm with a cup of coffee or tea. You can also serve them as a simple dessert after a meal.
Step by step instructions:
- Chop or grate the dark chocolate and keep it aside.
- Place a tortilla over a flat surface.
- Sprinkle two tablespoons of grated dark chocolate over half of the tortilla.
- Fold the tortilla in half to cover the filling.
- Heat a pan and cook the filled tortilla or flatbread on both sides until lightly browned. Use some butter or oil to roast if needed.
- When they are browned and cholate is melted, remove from the pan and cut in half to make triangles.
- Sprinkle some powdered sugar on them and serve immediately.
