• 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of sweetcorn or 1 cup of frozen sweetcorn
  • 0.5 small red onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 cups of grated cheese
  • taco seasoning
  • 4 tortillas


2, with some to spare


  1. Mix beans, sweetcorn, chopped onion, crushed garlic, grated cheese, seasoning
  2. Place around a cup onto half of a tortilla, fold over
  3. Fry on each side until golden brown and the cheese has melted


  • Original recipe used fresh coriander; I never have any
  • Don’t skimp on the cheese, or else the fried quesadilla will come apart and they’ll be tedious to turn over
  • Fry some onion + mince and mix in too for more bulk
