Chicken Quesadillas

For the salsa

Preparation method

  • For quesadilla, place four of the tortillas onto a board and cover each with the grated cheese.
  • Divide the chicken, red onion, jalapeno chillies and coriander equally over the cheese-covered tortillas.
  • Spread the sour cream onto one side of each of the remaining four tortillas and place sour cream-side down onto the filled tortillas.
  • Heat a frying pan and add the oil. Carefully place a quesadilla into the frying pan and cook over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes, until crisp and golden and the cheese filling is melting. Carefully turn the quesadilla over and cook on the other side for a further two minutes, or until crisp and golden. Remove from the pan and set aside to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas.
  • Cut the quesadillas into quarters and serve fresh and hot.
  • For the salsa, place all of the salsa ingredients into a food processor and pulse to combine. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • To serve, arrange the quesadillas serving plate and place a bowl of salsa into the middle.
