Instructions

Brown the Mince
1

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 the pan is hot, add the beef mince and cook until browned, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks, then drain and discard any excess fat. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
d) Season with salt and pepper.

Build the Flavour
2

a) While the beef cooks, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
b) Add the garlic, Central American style spice mix and tomato puree to the beef, then stir-fry for 1 min.
c) Stir in the water for the sauce (see ingredients for amount) and cook until thickened, 2-3 mins. Meanwhile, grate the cheese.
d) Once thickened, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the BBQ sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.

Make your Quesadillas
3

a) Lay the tortillas onto a baking tray (2 per person) 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
4

a) While the quesadillas bake, pop the cider vinegar and olive oil for the dressing (see ingredients for amount) into a large bowl.
b) Season with salt and pepper, then mix together.
c) Chop the tomatoes into 1cm pieces and add them to the dressing.

Baby Gem Time
5

a) Trim the baby gem, halve lengthways, then thinly slice widthways.
b) Just before serving, add the baby gem to the bowl of dressing and toss to coat.

Serve
6

a) When ready, share the BBQ beef quesadillas between your plates.
b) Serve with the salad alongside.
Enjoy!
