Quesadillas With Tomato Salsa

This is basically an excellent cheese sandwich with a bit of a kick.This recipe would serve 1 for a main course (Ilove this for lunch) or it would serve a few people for little bites with drinks before a meal.Or you could serve this as an accompianment to the maincourse.These are good served with and dipped into, Tomato Salsa, Guacamole, Hot Chilli Sauce, and Red Onion Raita.


  • Tomato Salsa

  • 4 ripe tomatoes chopped

  • 1 tablespoon onion chopped

  • 1-2 garlic clove crushed

  • 0.5 - 1 chilli chopped

  • 1 teaspoon heaped coriander

  • juice of 1/2 a lime

  • salt, pepper and sugar

  • Quesadilla

  • 2 corn or wheat flour tortillas

  • 30 g cheddar cheese grated

  • 1 spring onion sliced

  • 1/2 a red or green chilli sliced


  • Tomato Salsa:

  • 1.

    Mix all the ingredients together,season with salt ,pepper,and a pinch of sugar

  • Quesadilla:

  • 1.

    Heat up a frying pan (cast iron,non stick,etc) and place the tortilla on the hot pan (don’t heat it up too much).

  • 2.

    Sprinke the grated cheese over the top, keeping it a little from the edge.

  • 3.

    Next sprinkle the sliced spring onions and the chilli slices on top, and cover with the other tortilla.

  • 4.

    The cheese will have started melting at this stage and the tortilla on the bottom should be golden brown.

  • 5.

    When it is, turn it over carefully keeping it all intact, then cook until that side is golden and all the cheese melted.

  • 6.

    Transfer to a board or plate and cut in wedges.

  • 7.

    Serve immediately with tomato salsa.


* The fastest cheese sandwich ,so easy, if you have tortillas in the freezer, use them from frozen,they are fine.
