To many it might seem a tad ridiculous how obsessed I am with cheese. When my family moved to Vancouver we discovered a tiny Dutch store that sold imported Gouda. The fact that it was a 2,5 hour drive didn’t bother us at all. We wanted cheese and we were willing to drive for 5 hours to get it. 🙂 Nostalgic memories of our time in Canada came up while photographing grated cheese, melting so beautifully down the layers of tortilla and smoked chicken salsa. Have a great weekend everyone! <3 🙂

Quesadilla Pie


  • Serving 1 Quesadilla Pie
  • 4 tortillas
  • 100 gr grated cheese (I used extra ripe Dutch cheese)
  • 2 tomatoes
  • a handful of fresh spinach
  • 1 red onion
  • 200 gr smoked chicken
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lime
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • chili pepper flakes


  1. Chop up your spinach, tomatoes and red onion finely and toss together with smoked chicken (cut in small pieces). Sprinkle the juice of 1 lime and some olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. On low-medium heat warm up a tortilla on both sides for about 20-30 seconds. Add half the grated cheese, cover with another tortilla and gently flip over to heat up the other side of your quesadilla. When the tortilla becomes crispy and the cheese has melted remove the quesadilla and place on a wooden chop board. Repeat this process for the top layer!
  3. Add some of the smoked chicken salsa on top of the first quesadilla layer and cover it with thinly sliced avocado and the second quesadilla layer.
  4. Sprinkle some chili pepper flakes and serve along with your preferred sauce (I used a mix of skim yogurt and Chipotle sauce).
