Recipes for the weekend – Quesadillas

TGIF! Hi everyone today im going to share with you one of my favourite weekend recipes. The weekend is a perfect time to experiment in the kitchen and to create some amazing home cook food! The recipe i am sharing today is one of my own recipes that i have made a few times and everyone loves it.

Hot & Spicy Mushroom and beef Quesadilla’s 

You will need –
500g minced beef
200g mushrooms – finely chopped
3 cloves – garlic finely chopped
2 tbsp of tomato puree
2 whole green chillies – finely chopped with seeds
1 Old El Paso hot & spicy taco dry mix ( i use this to save money instead of buying loads of different spices)
Cayenne pepper 1 tsp
Choloula hot sauce as much are you like i add about 3 to 4 drops
300g grated cheese
Large tortillas

Heat up a large non stick pan and add the mince cook till brown. Add the mushrooms, garlic, tomato puree, chillies, taco mix, cayenne pepper and hot source. once everything is cooked and combined place to one side.
Heat up a small about of oil in a frying pan and leave to heat up while you get your first tortilla ready.
Lay out your tortilla and sprinkle some cheese on one side of the tortilla, on the same side place a generous amount of the mince mix then op with more cheese. Once filled place the plain side on top and slightly press down. Now add to the pan.
Cook on each side for around 5 minutes or till crispy and golden brown. Then repeat.

Once there all cooked cut each one in half and serve.

What i serve with my Quesadillas…
I always serve mine with Sour Cream and Guacamole these are perfect if they are hot & spicy!!!
I also serve mine with corn on the cob! Rub each corn with lime juice the a small about of butter then place on a baking tray and grill till cooked though!
