  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a nonstick frying pan over a high heat. Fry the onions and pepper, stirring occasionally, for 6-8 mins until softened. Transfer to a bowl and mix with the taco beans and BBQ sauce.
  2. Tip the sweetcorn into a bowl and mix with half the coriander, the tomatoes and lime juice and season well. Set aside.
  3. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat. Place 1 tortilla in the pan and top with a quarter each of the bean mix, cheese and remaining coriander. Top with a second tortilla and fry for 1-2 mins until the base is crisp. Using a spatula, carefully flip the quesadilla and fry for a further 1-2 mins until piping hot and the cheese has melted. Transfer to a plate and keep warm while you repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  4. Cut the quesadillas into triangles and serve with the sweetcorn salsa and soured cream on the side.
