These gooey, cheesy quesadillas make the perfect nibble to enjoy at a Christmas party. An easy Christmas canapé that can be served with margaritas for an authentic, festive Mexican fiesta.

  1. Tip the beans into a bowl. Stir in the chipotle paste, coriander and the cheese. Mash with a potato masher, leaving the mixture quite rough.
  2. Pop a baking tray into the oven and preheat to gas 1/4, 110°C, fan 90°C. Arrange 5 tortillas on a board and divide the cheesy beans between each one, then top with another tortilla and press together.
  3. Brush a griddle or frying pan with a little oil and put over a medium-high heat. Cook the tortillas, one at a time, for 1-2 mins each side, until golden and slightly charred. Pop the cooked tortillas onto the baking tray in the oven to keep warm while you cook the remainder.
  4. Remove the tortillas from the oven and allow to stand for 5 mins to let the filling set before cutting each one into 8 wedges. Mix together the soured cream and chives, spoon into a bowl and serve alongside the tortillas with the lime wedges for squeezing over.
