Quesadillas

After a lovely day out today I didn't want to come home and have to start cooking a full on meal. I had all the ingredients for these delicious South American sandwiches, which are one of my favourite quick fixes. If you were only going to try one recipe from this blog, I would say try these. So utterly tasty and satisfying. For the children I do just ham and cheese and serve with some sour cream. This is another recipe from "Nigella Express". Don't take the ingredients too literally, a couple of slices of parma ham and a handful of cheese then a sprinkling of the other ingredients will do. If you haven't got a griddle just fry them instead. 




For each tortilla wrap
30g parma ham
3 slices of pickled green jalapeno chilli peppers from a jar
50g grated cheese (I use cheddar)
1 spring onion finely sliced
few coriander leaves
1 teaspoon of olive oil


Method
Heat a ridged griddle.
Place the tortilla wrap on the counter in front of you and cover with the ham.
Over one one half, sprinkle the jalapeno, grated cheese and chopped spring onion. Scatter the coriander leaves over the top.
Carefully fold the tortilla wrap in half.
Lift this carefully and brush each side with the oil before putting into on the hot griddle, grill for a minute each side.
Transfer the tortilla to a board and cut into 3 triangles.


For a vegetarian option use slices of avocado instead of the parma ham.
