Whole-wheat tortillas are filled with crispy chorizo, corn, peppers, spring onions and gooey cheese to make these quick and easy quesadillas.


  • 200g chorizo, diced
  • 150g corn
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 6 spring onions, diced
  • 1 tsp  ground pepper
  • 100g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 tomato, seeds removed and diced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 4 whole-wheat tortillas


  1. Pre-heat your grill/broiler on a high heat.
  2. Spread the chorizo, corn, bell pepper and spring onions on a baking tray and season with the ground pepper.
  3. Put the baking tray under the grill for 6-8 minutes until golden brown, turning halfway through.
  4. Remove the baking tray from the grill and leave to cool for a few minutes. Then, either on the baking tray or in a separate bowl, mix in the cheddar cheese, tomato and lime juice.
  5. Lay out your tortillas. Equally divided the filling between the tortillas, spreading it in an even layer on one half of the tortilla. Then fold the other half over.
  6. Pre-heat a frying pan to a medium heat. Pan fry the quesadillas individually for 3-4 minutes either side until the tortilla is golden brown and crisp. Keep the quesadillas warm while you cook the rest.
  7. Serve with salad and a dipping sauce like guacamole or salsa and enjoy!
