Ingredients
 

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large red onions, VERY thinly sliced
  • 14 slices pickled jalapeños
  • 200 g strong Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 250 g wafer thin chicken
  • 4 tbsp fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • 6 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 lime
  • 8 large soft wraps

Instructions
 

  • Gently fry the onion and chilli in the oil until soft and golden, about 15 minutes.
  • Divide the ingredients between the 4 four wraps.
  • Sprinkle a generous amount of cheese onto one half of a wrap.
  • Place the chicken and more cheese on top.
  • Blob on the mayonnaise, coriander, jalapeno and a squeeze of lime.
  • Top with the second tortilla.
  • Lay one tortilla into a non-stick frying pan and spoon a ¼ of the mix over evenly.
  • Top with a second tortilla and place the tortilla on a medium heat to start the cooking process.
  • Cut a piece of baking parchment to fit snugly on the top tortilla.
  • Gently heat a second frying pan and then place it on top of the baking parchment, so you cook from above and below. You can pop the pans into a hot oven to cook through if you want.
  • You may need to reheat the top pan a couple of times to warm through thoroughly.
  • Alternately you can cook in a quesadilla cooker.
  • Lift the cooked quesadilla, cut and eat.
