Veggies, beans and cheese sandwiched in tortillas, then fried until golden on both sides. This is a great weeknight supper, ready in a flash - make one quesadilla per person. You can also cut them like a pizza and serve as a starter or party nibble.
For a healthier meal, try baking the quesadillas in the oven rather than pan frying them. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes at 190 C / Gas mark 5, or until the tortillas are golden brown.
Something else. Made a great lunch for us this afternoon. I sprinkled some cumin and chilli powder in the mix. I baked my tortillas at 200 for about 15 minutes and they were perfect. Will make again. - 24 Jul 2008
Something else. This is a great recipe! Instead of frying, I brushed the tortillas with olive oil (and also topped with more of the cheese) and baked at 200 degrees for about 5 minutes (could go longer if you like them crunchy). - 24 Jul 2008
I halved the recipie for my boyfriend and myself - delicious! Doesn't take too much work - just chopping a few vegetables and letting them fry. As a tip, the cheese is the 'glue' of a quesadilla - so to help it stick well, don't put it all in one layer - divide it in between each ingredient so that everything 'sticks' when the cheese melts! - 16 May 2010
