How to make Quesadillas

Obviously, you may want to leave out the jalapeño peppers if you're making these for kids. Quesadillas are delicious and simple yet quick to make.

Before you start cooking

You will need to reheat your leftover Chilli con Carne in a saucepan. Grate some cheese into a bowl so you're ready when you want to start cooking.

How do you keep Quesadillas Crispy?

Heat up a frying pan and, using kitchen paper just wipe the pan with a little oil.

'Little' is the keyword here or your tortillas will soak up the oil and be soggy. You must also have a good non-stick frying pan to avoid a quesadilla mess!

Once the pan is nice and hot, lay a flour tortilla on the bottom and sprinkle with grated cheese - leaving a little strip around the edge without the cheese.

Cook over a medium to high heat until the cheese has completely melted.

Then spread just one side of the tortilla with the heated chilli.

Making a leftover chilli quesadilla

Fold the tortilla over so you have a half-moon shape. Cook for a minute or so more (don't let it burn) and then pop it onto a plate and cut in half. Serve right away with this Simple Salsa recipe.

How to keep Quesadillas Hot?

If you're feeding a few people you can keep the quesadillas warm in a 150c/300f or Gas 2 oven on a baking sheet until ready to serve.

With that said, it's probably best you don't try to make too many as they will not be as nice as when they were first cooked.
