Cook the Chorizo and Veg

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

b) Drain the sweetcorn in a sieve. Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.

c) Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on high heat. 

d) Once hot, add the chorizo, onion and corn. Fry until softened and starting to char, 5-6 mins. Stir only twice during this time.

Mix the Filling

a) Meanwhile, grate the Cheddar cheese. Crumble the Greek style salad cheese. Zest and halve the lime.

b) Once the veg is cooked, remove from the heat and stir through the Central American style spice mix.

c) Add the spiced veg, both cheeses and half the lime zest to a medium bowl. Mix together well.

d) 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 cheesy veg filling onto one half of each one.

b) 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, then bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 5-7 mins.

Tomato Salad Time

a) While the quesadillas bake, cut the tomato into 1cm chunks.

b) Wipe out the (now empty) filling bowl.

c) In the clean bowl, mix the sugar and olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for both amounts) with a squeeze of lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.

d) Add the tomato to the dressing and set aside until serving.

Zest It Up

a) In a small bowl, mix together the soured cream and remaining lime zest.

b) Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.

Finish and Serve

a) When the quesadillas are ready, add the baby leaves to the tomato bowl and toss to coat in the dressing.

b) Plate up your quesadillas with the salad alongside.

c) Dollop the zesty soured cream alongside to finish.
