Corn quesadillas

easy quick corn quesadillas
This is a great, quick family recipe that kids (and adults!) are sure to like. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare plus a few minutes to grill. I ate them with some homemade guacamole (mash avocado with a little garlic, lemon juice and olive oil and for extra flavour add some chopped spring onions, fresh coriander or chilli if you like).

Speaking of kids, listen out for a spring bird feed recipe, that you can prepare and hang out in the garden. I am planning on making it and posting it on the blog this week if my 2 year old can sit still for long enough..!

Ingredients (serves 4)

1 tbsp oil
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 red pepper, finely chopped
1 x 198g tin sweetcorn
1 tbsp runny honey
Jar of mild salsa
Optional – 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
150g cheese
4 – 5 flour tortillas (you can get wholemeal ones for a healthier version)

Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onion and pepper for a few minutes until softened. Add the sweetcorn, honey, balsamic vinegar if using, the salsa and fry for a few more minutes. Spread each tortilla with the mixture and sprinkle on some cheese (ensuring you keep some aside) then roll them up. Put them on a baking tray then sprinkle over the remaining cheese. Grill until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are a little brown and crispy on top. Alternatively you can cook them in the oven on the highest setting until done.
