Quesadillas are a great snack food – kind of like a Mexican toasted cheese sandwich. In fact, queso is what they call cheese in Mexico!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 x 20cm flour tortillas
100g cheddar cheese, grated
1 medium tomato, chopped into 1 cm cubes
1 spring onion, finely sliced
50g corn kernels
2 teaspoons coriander leaves, finely chopped, plus extra to garnish
sour cream or guacamole, to serve

Method

  1. Place 1 tortilla on a chopping board and set the other aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the cheese, tomato, spring onion, corn and 2 teaspoons of coriander. Evenly spread the cheese mixture onto the tortilla on the chopping board. Place the other tortilla on top and press down lightly.
  3. With adult help: Turn on your sandwich press and let it heat up. When hot, carefully place the quesadilla in and press shut. Cook the quesadilla until the cheese has completely melted and the tortillas are lightly golden. Using a spatula, slide the quesadilla onto a platter.
  4. Using a pizza cutter (or, with adult help, a sharp knife), cut the quesadilla into 6–8 wedges. Garnish with coriander and serve immediately with sour cream or guacamole.

Note

  • If you don’t have a sandwich press at home, ask an adult to help you heat a frying pan over low heat, then slide the quesadilla into the pan using a spatula. Cook for two minutes on each side, then use a spatula to transfer the quesadilla to a plate.

Time-saving tips

  • Have all your equipment and ingredients ready. Find a kitchen hand to help you prepare the ingredients ahead of time. Use pre-grated cheese.
