Cheese quesadilla

  • Servings : 4
  • Prep Time : 10m
  • Cook Time : 15m
  • Ready In : 25m

This is an easy appetizer to make when kitchen facilities are limited. No oil splashes, no mess, makes great use of leftover meats and is heavenly comforting to eat!


  • 1 packet of soft, flour tortillas (8 tortillas)
  • 100g finely sliced spring onions
  • 250g grated cheese
  • 2 finely chopped red chilies (optional)


Step 1

Place a tortilla in a dry frying pan on medium heat. Flip over the tortilla a few times so that both sides are warmed through and air pockets begin to form.

Step 2

Sprinkle cheese, green onions and chilies over the whole tortilla Reduce heat to low.

Step 3

When the cheese has melted and the bottom is golden brown, (not burnt), fold the tortilla in half. Remove from the heat and cut into wedges Serve warm.

Note: you can turn this dish into a main dish by adding meat to it – ground beef, pork, shredded cooked chicken, etc. My favorite filling is portobello mushroom and spinach with a hint of nutmeg. Yum!
