I've had a craving for these for oh-so-long. I make this quite simplified and healthier version of a quesadilla - it takes no time and it's a great lunch or even an easy-peasy-can't-be-bothered-dinner. You can mix up your ingredients - used diced chicken thighs or even turkey mince if you like.... or even drained tinned tuna or salmon. I like to use corn tortilla but again, if you want, use another flatbread, you can. Get creative, involve the kids, make an assembly line - make it a Friday night fun feast!
Ingredients: (per tortilla stack)
2 corn tortillas
1/2 cup lean minced beef
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 cup grated tasty cheese
1 medium tomato, diced
1 stalk continental parsley, roughly chopped
Heat up a frypan around the size of your tortilla to a medium heat. Add your beef and sprinkle the paprika and a tsp water, mix it around until beef is completely brown. Move beef into a bowl and set aside.
Place your first tortilla in the frypan, and turn down to medium-low heat setting..
Sprinkle 1/2 of grated cheese on the bottom, then layer your beef. Add the rest of cheese on top.
Pile your tomato and parsley on top.
Place your other tortilla on top, With a egg flip, place underneath the bottom tortilla and flip over.
Put some pressure on top of your tortilla - you can do this by pressing down with your hand or your egg flip or you could get really 'technical' or 'lazy' and cover a small brick in 2 layers of aluminium foil and put that on top for about 3-4 minutes.
Then transfer across to cutting board and cut in quarters.
Feel virtuous and try to stop at one....
Have a lovely weekend all - what have you got planned?
