I have just returned from a wonderful week in Mexico, great weather, great people and great food. One simple, healthy and very versatile dish is the Quesadilla. It literally takes 5 minutes, you can use any filling ingredients you fancy (have in stock!) and they're a winner with children too!

  • 1 spring onions
  • ¼ organic red pepper, sliced thinly
  • Sprinkle of diced organic lean ham (optional)
  • tsp deseeded chilli, diced finely (optional)
  • 2 tortillas
  • soured cream , to serve
  1. Mix the grated cheese, onion, red pepper and ,if using, the ham and chilli in a bowl
  2. Heat a dry frying pan over a high heat for approximately 1 minute or until smoking hot
  3. Add one of the tortillas and pour over the mixed ingredients, spread evenly over the tortilla place the other tortilla on top.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium and fry for ½ minutes on either side till the tortilla is crisp and browned and the cheese is fully melted.
