Quesadilla recipe

Comfort food is something that everyone wants to eat in the wintertime when it’s snowy. These super easy quesadillas are fast, easy and delicious and the ULTIMATE comfort food to chow down on.

Prep:15 mins

Cook:6 mins

Serves 8 


  • 250g strong cheddar , grated
  • 4 tomatoes , roughly chopped
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 can of black beans 
  • ½ large bunch cilantro, leaves roughly chopped*
  • 8 flour tortillas 
  • oil , for brushing
  • STEP 1
    Put the cheese, tomatoes, corn, beans and cilantro leaves (*you can leave this out if you prefer) into a bowl with some salt, pepper and cumin then mix well.
  • STEP 2
    Warm tortillas in the microwave according to pack instructions – this makes them more bendable. Divide the cheese mix over one half of each tortilla. Fold over the other half to make 8 half-moons, then press down to seal.
  • STEP 3
    Brush the tops with a little oil, then sit, oil-side down, on a hot pan. Cook for a couple of mins until crisp and golden, brush the uncooked side with oil, then flip over for another few mins. Slice into wedges, then pile onto a platter while you cook the rest.
