Instructions

1

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

Halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into 1cm chunks. 

Grate the cheese. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

2

Drain and rinse the kidney beans in a sieve (see ingredients for amount, but use them all if you like beans!). Pop them into a bowl and roughly mash with the back of a fork. 

Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the beef mince and chopped pepper, then season with salt and pepper. 

Fry until the mince is 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. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

3

Once the mince is browned, stir in the garlic, tomato puree and Mexican style spice mix. Fry for 1 min.

Add the crushed kidney beans, beef stock paste, sugar and water (see pantry for both amounts), then bring to the boil. 

Simmer, stirring frequently, until thickened, 2-3 mins. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed.

4

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

Fold the other side over to make a semi-circle. Press down to keep together. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

5

Rub a little oil over the top of each quesadilla, then bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 8-12 mins.

6

When everything's ready, transfer your beef and bean quesadillas to your plates.

Serve the baby leaves alongside drizzled with the balsamic glaze to finish. 

Enjoy!
