20090216 Quesadillas

(Source: Nigella Express by Nigella Lawson)

This goes really well with a Desperados (tequila-flavored beer)! I used regular ham instead of cured ham so the quesadillas taste less salty.

INGREDIENTS (per wrap)
30g thinly sliced ham
3 coin-sliced slices of jalapeno chilli peppers from a jar
50g grated cheese
1 spring onion, finely sliced
few leaves of coriander
1 tsp olive oil

1. Heat a ridged griddle.
2. Place the tortilla wrap on the counter and cover with ham.
3. Over one half only, sprinkle the jalapeno slices, grated cheese, and chopped spring onion. Scatter the coriander leaves over the top. Carefully fold the tortilla wrap in half, fold the un-cheese-topped half over the cheese.
4. Lift this up carefully and brush each side with the olive oil before putting it on the hot griddle; grill for a minute each side.
5. Use a wide spatula to transfer the tortilla to a board or plate and cute into 3 triangles. Eat with some salsa on the side.
