Preheat your oven to 200°C. Halve, peel and thinly slice the red onion. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Drain the sweetcorn in a sieve and pop into a bowl. Drain and rinse the black beans in the sieve and pop half of them into another bowl, then mash with a fork until broken up. Grate the cheese.


Heat a large frying pan on high heat (no oil). When hot, add the sweetcorn and season with salt and pepper. Dry-fry until starting to char, 5-6 mins. Only stir twice in this time to allow the sweetcorn to colour. Once the sweetcorn is charred, spoon into a bowl and set aside. Wipe out your pan.


Pop your (now empty) frying pan back on medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. When hot, add the onion and fry until softened, 4-5 mins. Once soft, add the sweetcorn, black beans (whole and mashed), Central American style spice mix and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, stir well and cook for 1 min. Pour in the water for the beans (see ingredients for amount) and vegetable stock paste. Stir together, bring to a simmer and cook until the liquid has evaporated, 4-5 mins.


Remove the pan from the heat, then stir through the cheese. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Lay the tortillas onto a baking tray and spoon the filling onto one half of each one. Fold the other side over to make a semi-circle. Press down to keep together. Drizzle a little oil over the top, then bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 8-12 mins.


Meanwhile, zest and halve the lime. Halve the tomatoes. Squeeze the lime juice into a large bowl, then mix in a drizzle of oil. Halve the avocado and remove the stone. Use a tablespoon to scoop the flesh onto a board. Chop into 2cm chunks. Add the tomato and avo to the dressing, then season with salt and pepper. Mix and set aside.


Put the creme fraiche into a small bowl with the lime zest. Season with salt and pepper, then mix together. Serve your quesadillas (2 per person) on plates with the salad alongside and top with a dollop of creme fraiche. Enjoy!
