Quesadillas (pronounced 'kaysa diya') is a delicious Mexican snack food of different fillings and cheese in a tortilla folded in half and cooked until the cheese melts.

I made mine with three different fillings, one with chicken seasoned with Mexican oregano, chilli and herbs, fried capsicum and onion, one with seasoned chicken, avacado and pinto beans, and the other one with seasoned chicken and pinto beans and of course lots of cheese in all of them.


soft tortillas
grated cheese


seasoned chicken/beef
pinto or refried beans
sour cream
shredded lettuce
chopped tomato/onion


Heat a frying pan to a medium heat. Cover half your tortilla with grated cheese and then a light layer of the fillings of your choice. Top with more cheese and fold the empty half over and press down firmly. Cook until the tortilla is toasted on both sides and lightly brown. Remove from pan and cut in half. Serve with salsas or chilli con carne or just eat by themselves.
