With our #newmealoftheweek series, we have challenged ourselves to try and create a new dish in the kitchen each week to expand our foodie horizons with plenty of delicious recipes.

This recipe closely follows the avocado, black bean and sundried tomato quesadillas recipe from Tesco. however instead of mozzarella and cheddar cheese I use spicy cheese and have my own hack for putting them together to avoid so much spillage when frying and nomming 🙂


  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 tin of black beans
  • 60 grams sundried tomatoes and peppers (you can use half and half or purchase a mixed jar)
  • 200 grams spicy cheese (personally I prefer Mexicana original hot but any will do)
  • 100g cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander
  • 1 lime
  • 8 tortilla wraps
  • frying pan
  • mixing bowl


Step 1) Drain and rinse the black beans, chop the avocado and quarter the cherry tomatoes. Then place them all in a mixing bowl.

Step 2) Add the grilled peppers and tomatoes, zest and juice of the lime, plus coriander.

Step 3) Mix together all ingredients then grate the spicy cheese and place one wrap ready to make. Spoon enough mixture to cover half the wrap (careful not to go too close to the edges) and top with cheese.

Step 3) Once filled, fold the wrap in half and place another on top. Repeat the process until you have made all 8.

Step 4) Heat a pan on med-low and add one quesadilla. After 1-2 minutes check the underside. Once golden, turn it over and place a fresh one next to it. In another 1-2 minutes the first quesadilla is ready and you can turn the second and place a third. Slice the first in half and repeat the process until all are cooked. Optionally you could place the cooked ones in foil to keep hot until you finish cooking the rest.

Step 5) It’s chow time – enjoy 🙂
