Instructions

1 Make salsa

Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan. Peel and grate the garlic into a bowl. Chop the chilli and coriander. Add the tomatoes, garlic, coriander and chilli (spicy!) to a food processor with a generous pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Blitz until chunky smooth - this is your salsa

2 Smash avocado

Cut the avocado in half and remove the stone. Scoop the avocado out of its skin using a spoon and mash it with a fork. Squeeze all of the lime juice over the avocado and season with salt. Set aside.

3 Fry chicken

Chop the chicken it into small pieces. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the chicken, chipotle powder (spicy!) and smoked paprika with a pinch of salt. Cook for 3-4 min or until cooked through. Remove the pan from the heat, set aside.

4 Stuff quesadillas

Mix the grated cheddar and the grated mozzarella with the fried chicken. Divide the cheese and chicken mixture over one half of the tortilla wraps. Fold the tortilla wraps in on themselves and press each 'tortilla sandwich' down firmly - these are your quesadillas.

5 Fry quesadillas

Wipe the chicken pan clean and re-heat it over a medium heat with another drizzle of oil. Once hot, fry one to two quesadillas at a time for 1-2 min on each side until golden. Add the fried quesadillas to a baking tray and place them in the oven to keep warm while you fry the remainder. Watch out they don't burn!

6 Serve
