Quesadillas are a staple of Mexican food. Always filled with cheese, they’re warmed over a hot pan until the cheese is melted.  Quesadillas are also a great way to reinvent leftovers. Here’s our selection of easy to make Quesadilla Recipes. Perfect for a snack, lunch or light dinner. Not too sure what quesadillas are, or how to make them? Check out our blog on How To Make Quesadillas, which tells you everything you need to know.

1. Brussel Sprout and Chorizo Quesadilla

Our Brussel Sprout and Chorizo Quesadilla is so delicious it can even transform the biggest sprout hater! No wonder quesadillas are so popular these days. Besides being delicious, they are easy to prepare and satisfying for adults as well as little ones. They are very versatile as you can have a bit of fun and add a variety of fillings. They are suitable for vegetarians as well as meat eaters too. For this recipe we have seasoned chorizo, onions and sliced brussel sprouts with our Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix and Tomatillo Salsa. They’re then finished off with a bit of butter and freshly chopped coriander.

They are super simple and contain chorizo, red onion and grated cheese. Our Chipotle Honey is used to crisp up the chorizo in the pan, and everything is filled up into our Street Taco wraps. Finally our Tomatillo Salsa is dolloped on top for a zingy finish.
