Chorizo and Spring Onion Quesadillas

17 Sep

This recipe was so popular in my house that we eventually actually got sick of it! Recently we developed a craving for it again which I’m very happy about because it gives me an excuse to dust off the old recipe and share it with all of you! šŸ˜€ It is a fantastic dish which is literally packed with so much flavor. The chorizo and spring onion may seem an odd combination but it is well worth trying just to give your taste buds the journey of a lifetime.I like to use plenty of cheese as it acts as a binding agent but feel free to play around with the ingredient quantities.You can have this as a light dinner or substantial lunch.

Chorizo and Spring Onion Quesadillas (Serves 2)

150g chorizo, sliced into chunky rounds (You could also use pre-sliced chorizo Ā which would be thinner and less substantial)

150g cherry tomatoes, halved

1 garlic clove, minced

salt and pepper

4 wholemeal tortilla wraps (White tortilla wraps are also perfect)

75-100g cheddar cheese, grated

3 spring onions, finely sliced

  • In a dry pan, fry the chorizo until roaring red in color and slightly crisp. Drain on a plate lined with kitchen towel. Reserve the oil from the chorizo.
  • Put the chopped tomatoes in a bowel with the garlic and season with salt and pepper and mix.
  • Get 2 plates and place 1 tortilla wrap on each plate. Spread half the tomato mix on each tortilla wrap and distribute evenly.
  • Next sprinkle the chorizo, spring onionĀ andĀ cheese on in even layers. Place another tortilla wrap on top.
  • Heat the chorizo oil up, you can add some sunflower oil if needed. Fry each wrap individually for 2mins, or until crisp and golden, on both sides.
  • Serve whole or cut into wedges. You can also sprinkle some extra chorizo or spring onion on top if desired. Let the feast begin!
