Quesadillas are essentially the Mexican version of a cheese toastie (it translates as ‘little cheesy thing’ in Spanish), but are made using tortillas instead of bread. They are typically filled with cheese, but you can add any other ingredients you like to them.


Heat a tortilla in a pan and sprinkle over the cheese – plus anything else that takes your fancy – cover and leave long enough to melt. Then fold in half to make a calzone-style sandwich.
