  • 1 large avocado, roughly chopped
  • 200g (7oz) tinned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 40g (1 1/2oz) sundried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 x 125g pack mozzarella, drained and chopped
  • 100g (3 1/2oz) cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • olive oil
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 100g (3 1/2oz) Cheddar, grated


  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high temperature. Combine the avocado, black beans, sundried tomatoes, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, coriander, lime zest, and juice in a large mixing basin. Season well.
  2. In a large ovenproof frying pan, drizzle a little olive oil. In the pan, place 1 tortilla wrap and a quarter of the black bean mixture. Season, then top with a quarter of the Cheddar and a second tortilla.
  3. Place the pan over a low to medium heat and push the tortillas together with a spatula until they stick together. Cook for 2 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom. Finish frying the pan under the preheated grill for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Remove the quesadilla carefully from the pan and keep it warm while you finish the other three. When they're done, cut each one into four wedges and serve immediately.
