A great vegetarian recipe that even die-hard meat eaters will love. You could easily increase the quantities and serve this tasty Mexican treat at a party.


  • 210g vegetarian refried beans
  • 1 tbsp ready-diced red chilli or 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 orange or yellow pepper, finely diced
  • A small handful of fresh coriander leaves, roughly chopped
  • 3 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 2 soft flour tortillas
  • A handful of grated (vegetarian) Cheddar
  • Fresh guacamole, to serve


  1. In a bowl, mix the beans with the red chilli, pepper, coriander leaves and spring onions. Season and spread evenly over 2 soft flour tortillas. Top each with a handful of grated Cheddar and sandwich a second tortilla on top.
  2. Heat a large non-stick pan, lightly greased with olive oil, over a medium-high heat. Carefully fry each quesadilla, 1 at a time, for about 1½ minutes each side, until they are golden and the filling is hot (invert onto a plate to turn them over).
  3. Cut into wedges and serve with fresh guacamole, for dipping.
