Crammed full of gorgeously gooey cheese, creamy avocado and succulent sundried tomatoes, these quesadillas will bring a little Mexican sunshine to your plate! Give this easy vegetarian recipe a try for a simple midweek meal – just serve with a dollop of soured cream or salsa if you fancy.

  1. Preheat the grill to medium. In a large bowl, mix together the avocado, black beans, sundried tomatoes, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, coriander, lime zest and juice. Season well.
  2. Add a little olive oil to a large ovenproof frying pan. Put 1 tortilla wrap in the pan and scatter with a quarter of the black bean mix. Top with a quarter of the Cheddar, season and then place another tortilla on top.
  3. Put the pan over a low to medium heat and press down with a spatula until the tortillas stick together. Cook for 2 minutes or until the base turns golden. Place the pan under the preheated grill to finish cooking for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Carefully remove the quesadilla from the pan and keep warm while you make the remaining three. When they’re all done, cut each into 4 wedges and serve hot.
