Ingredients
 

  • 3 tbsp any oil
  • 1 small can sweetcorn
  • 300 g roughly sweet potato cut into 1cm cubes
  • 1 red pepper, again cut into 1cm cubes
  • 100 ml water or veg stock
  • ½ can refried beans
  • 6 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 3 pickled jalapeños, sliced
  • 150 g Monterey Jack cheddar, finely grated
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 8 soft tortillas

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok.
  • Add the sweetcorn and cook until it pops and has a really good colour.
  • Next, add the potatoes and peppers, water or stock, cover and cook over a high heat until the potatoes are cooked; remove the lid, boil off all the moisture, and season well.
  • Spread 4 of the tortillas with a spoon of refried beans.
  • Spoon over the hot potato mixture evenly.
  • Place on a few spring onions, jalapenos, cheese and a dusting of oregano.
  • Place into a frying pan or quesadilla press.
  • 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.
