Quesadillas are awesome. Even just saying the word makes our stomachs rumble in excitement. Looking at the pictures above and below is better still. So much so we’ve cunningly compiled a compilation of our favourite quesadillas from around the globe – and each and every one of these badasses are perfect for a quick lunch.

Of course, the wrap itself is an all-encompassing (I had to say it) part of the recipe, and you can easily make your own quickly and cheaply, or if you want to be super-healthy you can go for something ridiculously nutritious (try saying that ten times fast) like these gluten and soy free raw vegan wraps. Right on!

Course Mains
Cuisine Mexican
Time 30 minutes
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4 Quesadillas
Calories 381kcal

Ingredients

  • 8 small cherry tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • ½ bell pepper, red (your fave colour)
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 4 tbsp red pesto (check the notes, if you want to make your own)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella
  • 4 whole grain tortillas (check the notes, if you want to make them homemade)

Optional

  • sliced chillies for a kick!

Instructions

  • Wash the tomatoes and pepper, peel the onions and cut them all into thin slices – the cheese too.
  • Wash the spinach and let it drain in a sieve.
  • Grab a tortilla and spread a layer of pesto over half of it. A tablespoon works well.
  • Add a light layer of cheese on top and a quarter of the tomato, pepper and onion, followed by a few spinach leaves.
  • Top it with another layer of cheese.
  • Then fold the other half of the tortilla on top and place in a large frying pan (nonstick).
  • Heat for 2-3 minutes. Flip and heat for another 2-3 minutes until the cheese has melted – a good indicator is a little running out the side.
  • Pro Tip: place a heavy pot on top of the quesadilla so that it flattens nicely and cooks more evenly – this will also stop the insides escaping! If you don’t like the thought of putting a pot directly on your quesadillas then put a plate between the two.
