Today’s recipe: Crispy Quesadilla

(Sent by: Kohila Nandhakumar)

Ingredients

Diced onions

Sliced black olives

Sliced capsicum

Corn kernels 

Cheddar cheese slices or grated cheese

Dried oregano

Hot sauce or tomato ketchup (for kids)

Pepper powder

Salt

Readymade tortilla wraps 

Method

Heat a hotplate, spread some butter and toast the readymade tortillas evenly. Evenly spread some hot sauce on one half of the tortilla, then  place cheese slices or shredded cheese over it and top it up with sauted onions, olives, capsicum and corn kernels.  You may also add shredded, cooked chicken or beef slices. Fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling side and allow the cheese to melt. The tortilla turns out crispy outside and juicy inside. Now, carefully flip the tortilla and allow it to toast for 10 seconds until it gets browned and crispy. Remove from pan, cut the quesadilla into strips, and it’s ready to serve.
