  • 14 freshly prepared unbaked tortillas

for the filling

  • 8 oz finely chopped or grated Cheddar cheese
  • 3 jalapeno chillies seeded and cut into strips
  • salt
  • oil for shallow frying


  • Have the tortillas ready, covered with a clean cloth. Combine the grated cheese and chilli strips in a bowl.
  • Season with salt. Set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan, then holding an unbaked tortilla on your palm, put a spoonful of filling along the centre, avoiding the edges.
  • Fold the tortilla and seal the edges by pressing or crimping well together. Fry in hot oil, on both sides, until golden brown and crisp.
  • Using a fish slice, lift out the quesadilla and drain it on kitchen paper. Transfer to a plate and keep warm while frying the remaining quesadillas. Serve hot.
