I am a HUGE lover of fajitas and Mexican wraps. A great fajita night is in my top 5 favourite meals. These quesadillas have the flavours of a fab fajita but with a crunchy shell. Also, a great way to use up some stale tortilla or corn wraps. You can add as many vegetables as you like to these quesadillas. I have tried some butternut squash in addition to the others are that is super tasty too!

Ingredients

TORTILLA FILLING

  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Pepper
  • 1 Onion
  • 50g Cheese
  • 8 Tortilla/Corn Wraps
  • 1tsp Butter for Frying (Per Quesadilla)

FAJITA SEASONING

  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Pinch of Sugar
  • Pinch of Garlic Powder
  • Pinch of Onion Powder
  • Small Pinch of Cayenne Pepper

SALSA

  • 2 Tomatoes (Chopped)
  • 1/2 Red Onion (Diced)
  • 1tbs Coriander
  • 1tsp Garlic
  • 1tbs White Wine Vinegar

Method

  1. In a small bowl, combine the fajita seasoning ingredients. Then in a frying pan over a medium heat add the vegetables with a little oil, fry for 5 minutes stirring occasionally.

  2. Whilst they fry, make the salsa. Chop the tomatoes and red onion, and then finely chop the garlic and coriander. Add to a bowl with the vinegar and mix.

  3. Add in the fajita seasoning and combine and fry together until lovely and soft

  4. Lay out your tortilla wraps and add the mixture to the top of two of them then spread the mixture out to the edges

  5. Sprinkle your grated cheese over the vegetable mix and top with the other tortilla wrap, like a sandwich. Repeat with both.

  6. In a clean frying pan, add a knob of butter over a low/medium heat

  7. Once melted, add a quesadilla at a time and flip carefully after a couple of minutes. It should be lovely and brown. Repeat on the other side and then serve with the salsa.
