How to make Mexican Quesadillas

  1. For the tortillas- Combine flour, butter, salt and baking powder together and knead into a soft dough using warm water.
  2. Divide into 6-7 portions and roll out into 6 inch diameter circles, similiar to chapatis.
  3. Heat a tawa/skillet and place the rolled dough on it. Cook till it puffs up. Stack and keep covered.
  4. For the filling- Heat a heavy pan and drizzle oil add onion, garlic and cumin. Cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Add in the tomatoes, paprika, jalapeno, corn and coriander. Now add in the shredded chicken. Season with salt and cook for a further 3-4 minutes.Add all the peppers and lemon juice in the end and take off heat.
  6. To assemble- Heat a large heavy pan and smear a bit of oil, place a single tortilla in the middle. Spread about 2-3 tbsp cheese over half of the tortilla and layer generously with the filling, add another 2 tbsp cheese on top.
  7. Flip the un-topped half over the topped half, press down lightly and cook for 2 minutes, till cheese has melted and tortilla is crispy.
  8. Continue with the rest of the tortillas and filling till it is all used up.
My Tip: Serve with sweet tomato relish/sour cream or guacamole.
