Fry the Beef and Chorizo

a) Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.

b) Heat a medium frying pan on medium-high heat (no oil).

c) Once hot, add the chorizo and beef mince and fry until browned, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break up the mince as it cooks, then drain and discard any excess fat.

d) Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Build the Flavour

a) While the meat cooks, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Grate the cheese.

b) Once the beef is browned, add the garlic, Central American style spice mix and tomato puree. Stir-fry for 1 min. 

c) Stir in the water for the sauce (see pantry for amount) and cook until thickened, 2-3 mins.

d) Once thickened, remove from the heat and stir in the BBQ sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.

Make your Quesadillas

a) Lay the tortillas (2 per person) onto a lightly oiled baking tray and spoon the beef filling onto one half of each one.

b) Top with the cheese, then fold the other side over to make a semi-circle. Press down to keep together.

c) Rub a little oil over the top of each one.

d) Bake your quesadillas on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 5-7 mins.

Mix the Salad Dressing

a) While the quesadillas bake, pop the cider vinegar and olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for amount) into a large bowl.

b) Season with salt and pepper, then mix together.

Bring on the Baby Leaves

a) Just before serving, add the baby leaves to the bowl of dressing and toss to coat.


a) When ready, share the BBQ beef and chorizo quesadillas between your plates.

b) Serve with the salad alongside.
