This tasty Mexican food sandwiches two tortillas together and can be filled with anything you like as long as it contains some grated cheese (queso is the Spanish for cheese) to meld it all together. Quesadillas are perfect for a lovely evening on the patio. – Sheila Kiely, Gimme the Recipe
Ingredients: – serves 6 200g cheddar cheese 1 small red onion (if you don’t like raw onion leave it out) 8 large soft flour tortillas Sun-dried tomato pesto or paste 8 slices of cooked ham
Method: Grate the cheese and peel and finely chop the red onion. Spread one side of each tortilla with the sun-dried tomato pesto or paste. Place 2 slices of ham on a tortilla and top with chopped red onion and grated cheese and sandwich together with a second tortilla. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and place a quesadilla on the pan pressing it down so that the heat will begin to toast the underside of the tortilla and penetrate through to melt the cheese. Turn it over after 1 or 2 minutes and press down to lightly toast the other side until the cheese has melted. Cut into wedges and serve. Continue until all of the ingredients are gone.
Tips: Quesadillas are great served with guacamole and sour cream. Cold quesadillas are perfect for school lunchboxes.
