Kurkure Crunch Quesedilla

This is a simple and amazing crunchy quesedilla that could be made very quickly. This tasty, ooey gooey cheesy quesedilla with Kurkure inside gives both amazing flavor and taste that it might be hard to stop with one.

When you are in a hurry or very tired, that's when kids are going to ask for tastier meals for sure. Well, life happens. When a request for a crunch wrap came, and he had to leave very quickly (also I was out of the necessary ingredients for it), what choice do I have left! Thought to ask him to buy outside, but the open Kurkure packet left in the counter gave me the idea. In a few minutes I made the Kurkure quesedilla which became a super hit immediately. 

I make this often, now a days. I always prefer healthy nutrient profile. If you are frquent visitor to my blog, you'll know my obsession with fruits and veggies, and hence added a little veggie...I mean some bell pepper. Not every time you could win, let the kid win a couple of times! Atleast I could bargain with the addition of bell peppers. It is ok to indulge without veggies now and then, but feel free to add veggies of your choice.

I am not a big fan of kurkure, but had to accept that it was good not because I made it, the flavors were good. When kids voted for it, I tasted and liked it too. Sour cream based dip on the side can be great but I didn't want to serve it as it is more in calories. Guacamole is a healthy alternative and we love it with anything. The tomato ketchup can be increased or decreased as per preference. Any cheese can be used. I usually have grated cheddar in my freezer. Any sliced ones like pepper jack or habanero jack would work too. I love habanero jack for the spicy kick it gives. Feel free to add any cheese you like or a mixture of it to make a cheesy quesedilla.

Sometimes, I have premade uncooked roti chapathi in fridge which comes in handy when needed. The same recipe can be used with regular chapathi or store bought cooked tortillas. It works well with those too. This is similar to crunch wrap and if you are lover of those check out this Black Beans and Cheetos Crunch Wrap for an amazing one! I have used Masala Kurkura but any flavor kurkure can be added. If you are cooking in pan, I would recommend folding and cooking so that the fillings do not fall off. If you are making in a quesedilla maker, double the filling and cover with another tortilla and cook. 


Tortilla - 3
Bell pepper - 3 tbsp, diced
Cilantro - 1 tbsp, chopped
Cheddar cheese - 3/4 cup, shredded
Kurkure - 1 cup
Ketchup - 2-3 tsp


Heat the tortilla on low medium heat. Flip the side.

Spread a teaspoon of ketchup. Sprinkle 2 tbsp cheese on one half of the tortilla. break kurkure into smaller pieces and add on top of cheese, followed by bell pepper and cilantro. Sprinkle two more tablespoons of cheddar cheese.

Fold in half and cook flipping the sides till the cheese is melted and the tortilla is cooked.

Serve with optional guacamole or sourcream.
