Easy kidney bean quesadilla
4 spring onions, thinly sliced
400g tin kidney beans in water, drained
1 tbsp chipotle paste
4 flour tortillas
100g cheddar, grated
Heat the oven to 120C/100C Fan/Gas ½.
Heat ½ tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the spring onions and cook for 2 minutes, until beginning to soften. Add the kidneybeans and the chipotle paste stir well. With a fork, crush the beans to a rough purée. Transfer the beans to a plate and wipe out the pan.
Put one tortilla in the pan and top with an even layer of grated cheese. Spoon over half the bean mixture and top with another even layer of cheese (the cheese acts as glue). Place a tortilla on top of the cheese, then press down with a spatula and cook for 3–4 minutes, or until the underside is golden. Flip over the quesadilla and cook for a further 3–4 minutes.
Place on a baking tray and transfer to the oven to keep warm. Repeat step three with the remaining ingredients.
