We both absolutely love making and eating Mexican food so we thought we'd share our delicious and really simple Quesadilla recipe with you. It's easy to make and easy to adapt and change according to your taste! This recipe serves four people and makes four tortillas
You will need:
2 large chicken breasts or four small ones (this is optional if you don't eat meat!)
half an onion (can be red or white depending on what you like/have in)
6 fairly large mushrooms
one medium sized clove of garlic
salt + pepper
Firstly, chop the chicken into small chunks
Fry off the chicken in a small amount of oil in a preheated pan, make sure the chicken sizzles when it hits the pan! Turn the heat down to medium.
What you season your chicken with is really up to you, but we used plenty of paprika, salt and pepper on ours!
Dice an onion and throw it in the pan once the chicken is seared on both sides. Chop up your pepper and mushrooms and add to your pan once the onions have started to soften.
Crush/slice/dice/chop (however you like your garlic) and add to the mixture along with the tomato paste, ketchup, lemon and worcestershire sauce. Season to taste.
Leave your mixture on a low heat and prepare your tortillas. Spread your cream cheese onto one side of two wraps.
Spoon your filling onto the tortilla and spread around.
Try not to overfill or spread too close to the edges or it will fall out in the pan!
Place the quesadilla into a dry pan on a medium heat. Leave to crisp up for 2-3 minutes.
This part can be a little tricky but trust us this is the easiest way we've found of doing it! You'll need to flip your quesadilla over so the other side crisps up nicely. Place a plate on top of your pan.
Holding the plate on top of the pan, flip the pan over so the plate is on the bottom
Voila! Flipped quesadilla.
Then slide it back into the pan and wait another couple of minutes until the wrap is crunchy.
We served ours with a homemade salsa (recipe to come soon!) but it's also great with salad!
Other things you could include in the filling are sweetcorn, bacon, mozzerella cheese, salami, spinach and basically anything that's good in fajitas or on a pizza is good in this!
We've been asked a few times about what we're wearing so we're going to start including little outfit photos at the end.
