Quesadillas with Pomegranate and Avocado (with Giveaway)

by Jennifer Sikora

You can basically stick anything between two flour tortillas and it will be a delicious snack, lunch, or dinner. I have tried everything from a BLT in a quesadilla, to pinapple and banana in a quesadilla.

Now I can say that I have tried Pom Pom Arils in my quesadilla. I found this yummy recipe on the POM website. It is full of flavor and healthy fats that your body needs.

  • 1 teaspoon sliced fresh cilantro
  • nonstick cooking spray
  1. Prepare fresh pomegranate arils, if necessary.*
  2. Spray nonstick cooking spray in a nonstick pan and heat over medium-high heat.
  3. Add tortilla to pan and sprinkle with cheese.
  4. When cheese has melted some, place second tortilla on top.
  5. Grill until the tortilla is golden brown, then flip it over.
  6. Remove from heat when cheese is melted and tortilla is crispy on the outside.
  7. Cut into eight pieces and sprinkle with arils and fresh cilantro.

I love how easy it is to fix yummy meals like this with the POM Arils that you can buy at the store. They are just as fresh as if you opened a pomegranate and whacked them all out of the flesh! Available from November through February, POM POMS are perfect for those who want to try, enjoy or cook with pomegranates but don’t want to take the time to open the fruit.
