A quesadilla (pronounced ke-sah-dee-uh) is a Mexican dish which involves cooking ingredients most popularly cheese inside a tortilla . This sweetcorn, red onion and sweet pepper filling with melted cheese is very yummy. Its simple to prepare but a favourite with me and my three kids.
Experts recommend that we should eat 5 daily servings of fruit and vegetables . Three tablespoons of sweetcorn counts as one serving of fruit and vegetables.
1 tbs olive oil
Heat the oil in a large pan or wok and stir fry the onion and pepper for 3 minutes. Add the corn and continue to cook for another 2 minutes or until the onion and pepper are soft. Add the balsamic vinegar and honey and cook for a further minute, then remove from the heat and season to taste.
Spread each tortilla with a tablespoon of salsa. Scatter a little cheese over the salsa and divide the corn mixture between the tortillas. Top with two thirds of the remaining cheese, roll up and arrange on a baking sheet. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese. Preheat the grill to high and grill the quesellidas for 1 – 2 minutes until the filling is hot and the cheese has melted.
Serve with sour cream and guacamole (optional).
