b) Stir the BBQ sauce into the pan.

c) Season with salt and pepper, then remove from the heat.

Make your Quesadillas

a) Lay the tortillas (3 per person) onto a lightly oiled baking tray. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

b) Spoon the beef filling onto one half of each tortilla and top with the cheese.

c) Fold the other side over to make a semi-circle. Press down to keep together.

Ready, Steady, Bake

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