INGREDIENTS

Made with

 Wattie's Medium Salsa Chilli Beans
i

Salsa Chilli Beans

Large and small red kidney beans are combined with corn and added to a thick and rich blend of tomatoes, onion, garlic and chilli powder. This delicious medium heat is suitable for those looking for something a little spicy! No added colours, flavours or preservatives.

 Wattie's Mexican Style Tomatoes
i

Mexican Style Tomatoes

Ripened on the vine under the Hawke's Bay sun, Wattie's Mexican StyleTomatoes are diced and blended, then seasoned for an authentic Mexican flavour.

Method

Step 1
Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan. Add onion, red capsicum and garlic and sauté over a low heat until the vegetables soften. Increase the heat and add the mince. Continue to cooking to brown the mince breaking it up with a fork if necessary. Add Gregg's Ground Cumin.
Step 2
Reduce the heat. Add Wattie's Medium Salas Chilli Beans and Wattie's Mexican Style Tomatoes. Stir to mix. Continue cooking, stirring regularly over a medium to high heat for 15 - 20 minutes, until mince is cooked and sauce is thick. Remove from the heat. The cooked mixture should be very thick - too thin and the filling will run out of the tortilla. You should have about 3 cups of mixture. Stir through parsley or coriander if wished.
Step 3
Brush a little oil on the base of a frying pan or crepe pan, large enough to fit the tortilla. Place a tortilla into the pan. Spread about ½ a cup of the hot mince and bean filling over one half of the tortilla. Sprinkle with grated cheese and fold the other half over to enclose the filling. Cook for 2-3 minutes over a medium heat and then carefully turn the quesadilla and continue cooking until the quesadilla is golden, crispy and hot. Repeat with the remaining tortilla. Cut into wedges. Serve with a fresh tomato salsa on the side and salad greens.
Step 4
Tomato Salsa:
Step 5
Mix together tomatoes, red onion, lemon juice and parsley. Set aside.

Tips

To increase the vegetables add grated carrot when adding the chilli beans and tomatoes.
The quesadillas can be cooked in a sandwich press if wished.
Add a diced avocado to the tomato salsa if wished.
Cooked filling can be cooled and frozen in an airtight container. Thaw in the refrigerator and reheat before preparing the Quesadillas. Can be frozen for up to 1 month.

Swap It Out

Replace beef mince with chicken or pork mince if wished.
Replace red capsicum with a chopped courgette if wished, adding with the chilli beans and Mexican tomatoes.
To make this vegetarian omit the meat and check that the cheese is made with vegetarian rennet. Noble which is a reduced fat cheese is suitable for vegetarians.
