Ingredients

Quesadillas

  • 1/2 yellow capsicum, deseeded, cut in half and flattened
  • 1 thick slice of red onion, peeled
  • 75g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Old El Paso™ Extra Mild Super Tasty Taco Spice Mix
  • 50g goats' cheese, softened
  • 25g baby spinach
  • 2 Old El Paso™ Regular Flour Tortillas

To serve

  • 100g Old El Paso™ Mild Thick & Chunky Salsa

Instructions

  1. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the capsicum (skin-side down), onion and tomatoes. Cook, without moving, for 2-3 minutes, until blackened in spots. Turn the vegetables over and continue to cook, without moving, for a further 2-3 minutes, until blackened in spots on the second side.
  2. Transfer the vegetables to chopping board. Let cool slightly. Cut the capsicum into strips, cut the onion ring in half and carefully halve the tomatoes. Add the vegetables to small bowl with the seasoning mix and toss to coat.
  3. Top half of each tortilla with half the goats’ cheese and half the spinach. Divide the vegetables between the tortillas. Fold each tortilla over the filling and press down slightly.
  4. Clean out the frying pan. Place the tortillas in pan over a medium heat and cook for 4-5 minutes, turning once, until golden brown and crisp. Cut into wedges and serve with the salsa.

Tips

Peppery rocket leaves or shredded kale make great substitutes for the baby spinach in this recipe.

For the best charred effect, avoid using a non-stick frying pan.
