Tuna melt quesadillas

If you want a budget-friendly lunch ready in 10 minutes, these tuna melt quesadillas are for you - kid approved!

  1. Mix the tuna, mayonnaise and sweetcorn in a bowl with some black pepper. Lay 2 of the wraps on a board and spread over the filling, leaving a small border. Scatter over the cheese and spinach, then sandwich with the remaining tortillas.
  2. Heat 1 tsp oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat, then toast the tortillas for 2-3 mins each side until golden and the cheese has melted, adding the remaining oil for the second one. Shimmy onto a board and slice into quarters. Serve with salad, if you like.
