Method

  1. Put the cheese, tomatoes, chilli and coriander leaves into a bowl with some seasoning, then mix well.

  2. Warm tortillas in the microwave according to pack instructions – this makes them more bendable. Divide the cheese mix over one half of each tortilla. Fold over the other half to make 8 half-moons, then press down to seal.

  3. Brush the tops with a little oil, then sit, oil-side down, on a hot area of the barbecue. Cook for a couple of mins until crisp and golden, brush the uncooked side with oil, then flip over for another few mins. Slice into wedges, then pile onto a platter while you cook the rest.

A great alternative to a cheese sandwich. The chilli gave it a kick and the coriander kept it fresh and light. We dry fried ours and it worked well enough. Will definitely be having these again.

These were great. My daughter made them and added a jar of salsa and a fried onion to the tomato mix. They were delicious.

Didn't have any coriander so replaced with dried mixed herbs- worked great. Added a little red bell pepper too which went well. Recommend and would make again :-)

Been making these at BBQs now for the last 3 summers. Everyone loves them, it's hard keeping up with demand. Excellent :-)

The filling is yummy done in a toastie maker as an alternative to plain cheese using ordinary sliced bread!
