 Serves 4


Ingredients


8 x 20cm soft flour tortillas
200g Monterey Jack cheese or Gruyere, grated
300g cooked skinless chicken breast, sliced
1 small red onion, finely sliced
8 red pickled jalapeños, finely chopped
1 tbsp vegetable oil


Spicy Tomato and Mango Salsa


1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp finely chopped coriander
3 large vine tomatoes, deseeded and chopped
1 small mango, diced
1 lime, juice and zest
1 red chilli, deseeded (optional)
salt and freshly ground pepper


To serve


4 tbsp sour cream
handful salad leaves


Method



  1. To assemble the quesadillas, place 4 tortillas on a board and divide half of the cheese evenly across each one then top with a layer of chicken. Next, add the red onion and jalapeños and sprinkle over the remaining cheese. Season with salt and black pepper then place a tortilla on top of each one and press down gently. Set aside.

  2. Meanwhile to make the salsa place all of the ingredients into a small bowl, mix well and chill until required.

  3. Heat a griddle pan and brush lightly with oil then carefully place one quesadilla into the pan and cook over a moderate heat for about 2-3 minutes. Place a small plate on top of the quesadilla and turn the pan over then slide the quesadillas back into the pan from the plate. Cook the other side for a further 2 minutes until crisp and heated through. Keep warm whilst cooking the rest.

  4. Cut each quesadillas into 4 and serve with a portion of salsa, sour cream and salad leave.


Tip


Reduce the amount of red chilli if you prefer a milder salsa
