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.

Left out the coriander as I'm not keen, but they were such an easy and great nibble! Served them as a side dish to pea & ham soup. Have also tried with smoked cheese, which was fabulous.
Just be careful not to overstuff them or they won't stay in place.

Very tasty although I didn't add quite enough corriander. Will definitely make again as would be easy as a snack done in the oven.

I absolutely loved these! Very easy to make and ready on the barbeque very quickly. A nice dish to snack on whilst waiting for the rest of the barbeque. I added some tabasco sauce to give it an extra kick. Delicious!

Bliss! I used half a seriously hot habanero chilli which really made it happen for me.

Lovely and easy. Great when catering for a large crowd because they stay well if made in advance and are cooked within minutes.
