Cheese and ham sandwich with a Mexican twist. Ideal for quick dinners.


  • 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


  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 2
    Mix the slicked shallot, chopped plum tomatoes, chopped chilli and parsley leaves in a bowl.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 4
    Fold the tortillas in half. Press down to seal.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 6
    Cut each tortilla into three triangles, pile up on a plate and serve with tomato salsa, guacamole or vegetable salad.
