What’s a Quesadilla you may be asking? A Quesadilla is two tortillas filled with cheese and other savoury ingredients and grilled. A bit like a toasted sandwich but using tortillas instead.

The great thing about a Quesadilla is its versatility, you can put last nights leftovers in the centre, you can have it as lunch, dinner or a snack. It’s great with plain fillings like cheese, cheese and tomato, chicken and cheese, chicken with cheese and mushrooms. The list is endless. Try anything you can think of and you’ll soon have some go to favourites.

This is a quick and easy version you can make if you have no leftovers in your fridge. Other fillings you could use are chilli con carne or my Mexican mince.

I have a sandwich press so I cook my Quesadillas in my sandwich press. If you do not have one, you can use a large frying pan and flip the Quesadilla half way through cooking.


Prep: 10 minutes

Cook: 10 minutes

Serves: 4



  • 1 quantity tortillas (already made)
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • grated cheese
  • 1 onion, diced finely
  • 1 jar taco sauce (optional)
  • sour cream (optional)
  • 1 tsp oil, for frying



  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat and cook the onions until soft. Remove from heat.
  2. Place one tortilla on the sandwich press and spread a light layer or beans, cheese, onions and a spoon of salsa around the tortilla. Top with another tortilla and cook for 1 minute until heated through. Repeat until all Quesadillas are made.
  3. Slice each Quesadilla into quarters and serve with sour cream and salad.
