Why Katy's Barking Gecko ?!

I love to travel, I love to cook and to try new recipes...

After returning from yet another trip to South Africa I browsed one of my Food Magazin subscriptions and

we started to envision how it might be to have a small, a very small restaurant. Somewhere in Australia or

South Africa.
Maybe 4 or 5 tables.
To be in the kitchen wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops cooking for fun and nice people....

Doesn't that sound great ?!
We even came up with a name: Katy's Barking Gecko

Well there is no restaurant (so far....), but heaps of favourite recipes.

Quesadillas with Guacamole

Quesadillas, Sour Creme and Guacamole

One of my weekday quick to prepare favourites ...

Quesadillas with Guacamole


For the Quesadillas

8 small soft Tortillas

For the Filling

200g grated cheese
200g crumbled feta cheese
1 finely chopped yellow or red bell pepper
3 finely chopped spring onions
some chopped coriander leaves

For the Quacamole

2 ripe avocados
1/2 red chili
2 spring onions
lemon juice


Mix all the ingredients for the filling.
Cover one of the Tortillas with a couple of tablespoons of the filling and place a second one on top.
Repeat that with all tortillas.

Either fry the Tortillas without extra added fat in a teflon-coated pan for a short time, until the outer side is crispy and slightly brown and the cheese in the inside is melted. For even better results use a contact grill.

For the Guacamole...
Place all the ingredients in a food processor until everything is prefectly blended.

Serve together with the still warm Quesadillas and some sour creme.


  1. Oh yummmm! Two of my favourite things. I make my quesadillas a bit chunkier with sweet corn and kidney beans and use lime juice in the guacamole :)
    Have to make this again soon.

  2. Sounds great as well :-D
    will try this the next time, was thinking about mixing tuna into the filling as well....

  3. Looks yummy easy Katja....will have to give it a try :)
