Ingredients for 4 people:
1 x quesadilla spice mix
200g cheddar cheese
1 x 198g can sweetcorn, drained
1 x 160g can tuna chunks in brine, drained
1 x red or yellow pepper, deseeded and chopped
2 tbsp oil
Guacamole and salsa to serve - you can buy this ready made or I prepared it myself:
15 cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
Salt and Pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 avocado, mashed
3 cherry tomatoes, quartered
Half a small red onion, chopped (I didn't have this)
A bunch of coriander, chopped (I didn't have this)
Juice of half a lime
Salt and Pepper
To start prepare the salsa and guacamole - basically just mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and season to taste. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the peppers for 2-3 minutes.
Preheat the oven to a low heat, this is to keep the first quesadilla warm while you cook the second.
Brush a large frying pan with the oil.
Add a tortilla and spread with half the tuna and sweetcorn mixture, salsa and cheese. Then place another tortilla on top and press down slightly.
Cook for a few minutes on each side until the tortilla browns and the cheese melts. Flipping the tortilla is not an easy process, I used a plate and a fish slice and managed not to drop it….just! Definitely don't attempt this while on the phone!
Repeat the process with the remanding ingredients.
Finally serve with a dollop of guacamole and enjoy.
I do love a quesadilla and these were fantastic, I will definitely be making them again. Arabella apparently isn't such a fan however she did polish off her plate so they can't be too bad. If you are vegetarian you can swap the tuna for courgettes and aubergine and I might even substitute the tuna for prawns next time….watch this space!
