RECIPE: Quick & Fresh Quesadilla

IMG_20150919_175322

If, like me, you’re a HUGE fan of Mexican food then this recipe should be right up your calle (that’s Spanish for ‘Street’… I tried, ok?)

This light meal is great for lunch and it actually is quick; 5 minutes quick.

Ingredients:

2 tortillas (whichever flavour you like best; I’m a huge fan of corn tortillas!)

1 large tomato

1 small handful of coriander (or however much you like)

1 medium mushroom

1/4 jalapeno chilli pepper

1 handful of cheese (I use cheddar but if you’re feeling fusion mozzarella is great too!)

Method:

Start by warming a frying pan with a little oil in it; I use a light fry spray so it’s not too greasy!

Whilst the pan is warming chop your ingredients (EXCEPT THE CHEESE) up on a chopping board; get them all mixed together; the fun thing about this is you can just mix it all up on the board, no need to add a bowl/ extra washing up!

Now your pan should be good and hot – get to making!

Place one of your tortillas in the pan and spread the tomato/chilli/mushroom/coriander mixture onto it starting in the centre and using a spoon to spread it out towards the edges.

Grab your cheese and sprinkle over the top and then place your other tortilla on top like a cute little beret.

After a few minutes CAREFULLY flip the tortilla over (this is tricky so don’t worry if you have spillage!).

All you have to do now is cook on the other side for a few minutes and then slide onto a plate to enjoy.

PRO TIP: Add some guacamole and salsa on the side because they make everything better!

ENJOY!
