* 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

* 1 onion, finely chopped

* 2 cloves garlic, minced

* 1 green pepper, chopped

* 2 tomatoes, chopped

* 140g (5 oz) frozen sweetcorn

* 12 omlette

* 1 (415g) tin Discovery Refried Beans

* 110g (4 oz) grated Cheddar cheese

* 4 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preparation method

1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a frying pan over medium heat, and sauté the onion and garlic until soft. Mix in pepper, tomatoes, and sweetcorn; cook until heated through.

2. Spread 6 omlettes with equal amounts of the refried beans, vegetable mixture, and then the Cheddar cheese, and top with the remaining omlettes to form a “sandwich”.

3. Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Place quesadillas in the frying pan and cook, turning once, until cheese is melted and both sides are lightly browned.


For a healthier meal, try baking the quesadillas in the oven rather than pan frying them. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes at 190 C / Gas mark 5, or until the tortillas are golden brown.
