Method

  1. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, swirl 1 tsp of the oil around, then add a tortilla. Sprinkle a handful of the cheese over one half of the tortilla, followed by some chicken and a few tomato slices. Season with a little salt and pepper. Cook for a few moments to melt the cheese, then fold over and cook until the tortilla is crisp.
  2. Turn the tortilla out of the pan and cut into quarters. Repeat with another flour tortilla to make another child’s portion.
  3. For the adults’ version, start by making a simple guacamole. Halve, stone, peel and slice the avocado, then mash it with the lime or lemon juice and a little seasoning.
  4. Make the tortillas as before, adding a little chopped coriander. Serve two each and cut into halves rather than quarters. Serve with the guacamole and soured cream, scattered with a little more coriander.

Why is it that people think children won't eat guacamole? It just assumes the children will only eat carbs and cheese, a bit frustrating. Shouldn't we be presenting our children with as many delicious vegetables as possible?

made these today for my 3 year old, I used wafer thin ham instead of chicken as it needed using, and he thought they were lovely. he kept saying they were "special pizzas"!!! Served with carrot and cucumber sticks, and rice for me and the hubby!!!!

Personally not a great fan, it's unbelievably messy and anyway who successfully flips their tortilla without it collapsing, oozing and not all remaining in the pan has my respect. We ended up with cheesy stodgy, unrecognisable messes on our plates. Having said that, still 3 stars for yumness!
