Cheesy Quesadillas

Cheesy Quesadillas
  • Time 40 mins
  • Serves 4
  • Difficulty Easy
  • 100g / 3 ½oz of Barbers cheddar cheese, grated
  • 150g / 5oz chicken fillets
  • 4 tsp of salsa
  • 8 slices of chorizo
  • 2 tsp of oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp of thyme
  • 4 tortilla wraps
  • Approx 20g / 1oz of pineapple pieces, roughly chopped into small chunks
    1. Mix together the chilli powder, cumin, coriander, thyme, salt and pepper with the oil to create a marinade for the chicken. Rub the spices into the chicken then wrap in foil and bake at 160c for around 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes then roughly pull apart with a fork.
    2. Take a tortilla wrap and spread onto one side the chicken, two chorizo slices, a tsp of salsa, pineapple and a handful of cheddar cheese. Keep the salsa in the middle of the other ingredients to avoid leaking later on. Fold the empty side of the tortilla wrap over to create a sandwich. 
    3. Heat a non-stick frying pan or griddle pan on a medium heat then fry the quesadilla for around 3 minutes, flip over and fry for a further 2-3 minutes on the other side. 
    4. Remove from the pan and carefully cut in half.
    5. Repeat steps 2-4 with the remaining wraps then serve.
