For a quick tea after school, an easy meal at the weekend, or to mix-and-match a bit to suit kids with assorted fussiness, you can’t go far wrong with:
Quesadillas : Cheese Tortillas
You will need:
A pack of tortilla wraps (8 wraps makes enough for a family of 4, or for 6 kids)
A mound of grated cheese
A selection of flavours: we like finely chopped onion, peppers, sweetcorn, coriander
You need to:
Place a tortilla wrap in a frying pan (no oil needed).
Pop some cheese on top.
Let the kids choose which extras they want to customise their quesadilla and pop them on top of the cheese.
Add another tortilla wrap on top to make a sandwich.
Dry fry for a couple of minutes, then flip with a spatula and dry fry the other side for a couple of minutes.
Slice like a pizza & it’s ready to eat.
We like to serve them with soured cream and guacamole.
This is a nice recipe to use if you fancy trying some new ‘international’ food with your kids and links in very well with the book Come and Eat with Us (Discovery Flaps) which was created with Oxfam and shows families in different countries shopping for food, cooking and eating. It introduces the idea of there being many similarities and differences around the world and gives lots to talk about.
