Buffalo Sauce:

Melt butter in a small sauce pan ( or microwave)

Add in the rest of the ingredients and whisk together.

Set aside.

Quesadilla Making:

Drain and wash chickpeas

Put chickpeas in a bowl and use a fork to mash them, leaving half of them whole and half mashed for textural differences.

Chop onions and put them in a lightly oiled pan on medium heat, cook for about 4 min or until the onions have started to soften.

Add in minced garlic and bell peppers and cook for 1 min

Add in the chickpeas and buffalo sauce mixture, mix and heat for about 2-3 min until mixture is heated through.

Put the cream sauce on both tortillas, I used a generous amount of sauce to cover the entire tortilla.

Add the buffalo chickpea mixture to one of the tortillas and the lay the other tortilla on top.

Heat quesadilla on a large skillet with very light brushed on oil. Heat each side until they are slightly crispy and brown.

Serve with left over cream sauce for dipping!
