1 Make filling

Heat a pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil and fry beef mince for 5 min or until nicely browned. Add taco seasoning (see tips for fussy eaters), sugar and tomato paste. Stir for 2 min. Add sour cream and mix well. Season with salt to taste. Remove the mix from the pan and keep warm. Wash and dry the pan.

2 Make salsa

Halve the cherry tomatoes. Halve cucumbers lengthwise and, using a spoon, carve out the seeds. Slice. Chop the coriander. Combine in a bowl (see tips for fussy eaters) and season with a squeeze of lime juice and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

3 Assemble quesadillas

Lay half of the tortilla wraps on a board. Sprinkle with half of the grated cheddar cheese. Divide the warm beef filling on top and spread it into an even layer. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Press the remaining tortilla wraps on top.

4 Fry quesadillas

Heat a pan over medium low heat with a drizzle of oil. Place a quesadilla into the pan and cook for 2 min, pressing with a spatula. Flip (see pro tip) and cook the other side for 2 min further. Repeat with the rest of the quesadillas.

5 Serve

Cut the quesadillas into triangles and serve with the cherry tomato and cucumber salsa.

Tips for fussy eaters

If they can't handle the heat, just make a separate batch and reserve the taco seasoning. Serve the tomatoes and cucumbers as fresh bites.

Pro tip

If you're too scared to flip the quesadilla with a spatula, cover it with a big plate instead and hold it firmly. Then flip the pan and slide the quesadilla back to the pan from the plate.
