Quick quesadillas



  • 1/2 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp extra butter
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 red, 1/2 green and 1/4 yellow capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 100gm pork mince
  • 2 tbsp barbecue sauce
  • 2 wholegrain tortilla wraps
  • 2 rounds of mini Babybel cheese


Spread 1/4 tsp butter on one side of a tortilla and set aside. Repeat with second tortilla.
Put frypan onto medium-low heat, add oil and the extra butter.
Once butter has melted, add the onion and capsicum and saut̩ for about 3 minutes.
Add cumin, nutmeg and pork mince and cook for another 3 minutes until pork is cooked through and all ingredients are well combined.
Remove from heat and transfer mixture to a bowl. Stir through barbecue sauce and set aside.
Wipe the frypan clean with a paper towel and return to stove over medium-low heat.
Place tortilla in pan, buttered side down.
Slice Babybel round into three even slices and place across one half of the tortilla.
Spoon half of the pork mixture on top of the cheese slices.
Gently lift the edge of the tortilla to check colour. When tortilla is golden brown underneath, fold in half over the pork mixture. Press lightly with a spatula to seal.
Remove from heat and cut in half.
Repeat with remaining tortilla and ingredients. Serve warm.
