  • 4 soft wheat or corn tortillas
  • 200g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 100g Serano or Parma ham
  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • 2 plum tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 red chilli pepper, deseeded and chopped
  • handful of parsley
  • olive oil


    1. Warm tortillas in the microwave according to the packet instructions, so that they are more bendable and won't break when you fold them.
    2. Mix the slicked shallot, chopped plum tomatoes, chopped chilli and parsley leaves in a bowl.
    3. Lay out the thin ham slices on one half of the tortilla, add the mixture of shallots, tomatoes and chilli. Generously sprinkle with the grated cheddar cheese.
    4. Fold the tortillas in half. Press down to seal.
    5. Heat up a griddle pan. Lightly brush the folded tortillas with a little bit of olive oil and place them one by one on the pan. Cook for a couple of minutes until crisp and golden, brush the uncooked side with oil, then flip over for another few minutes.
    6. Cut each tortilla into three triangles, pile up on a plate and serve with tomato salsa, guacamole or vegetable salad.
