Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 2330 - Chorizo & Sweet Potato Quesadillas With Salsa

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Peel and finely slice the sweet potato[es]

Add the sweet potato slices to a baking tray with a pinch of salt and a drizzle of vegetable oil

Put the tray into the oven for 12-15 min or until softened

2 2330 - Chorizo & Sweet Potato Quesadillas With Salsa

While the sweet potato is cooking, peel and finely chop the red onion[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add most of the chopped red onion (save the rest for later!) and chorizo with a pinch of black pepper and cook for 6-7 min or until softened

3 2330 - Chorizo & Sweet Potato Quesadillas With Salsa

While the onions are softening, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Once softened, add the chopped garlic and ground cumin to the pan and cook for 2-3 min further or until fragrant

Grate the cheddar cheese

4 2330 - Chorizo & Sweet Potato Quesadillas With Salsa

Once the sweet potato slices are cooked, remove the tray from the oven and add them to the pan and give everything a good mix up – this is your chorizo & sweet potato mixture

Reserve the tray for later

5 2330 - Chorizo & Sweet Potato Quesadillas With Salsa

Divide the chorizo & sweet potato mixture between the tortillas, covering only half of the wraps

Top evenly with the grated cheese and fold each tortilla over so you're left with 6 [12] half moon-shaped sandwiches – these are your chorizo & sweet potato quesadillas

6 2330 - Chorizo & Sweet Potato Quesadillas With Salsa

Add the chorizo & sweet potato quesadillas to the reserved tray, drizzling each with a little vegetable oil

Place a second baking tray on top of the tortilla baking tray to weigh them down slightly

Put the stacked baking trays in the oven and cook for 10 min, or until the tortillas are slightly browned and the cheese has melted

7 2330 - Chorizo & Sweet Potato Quesadillas With Salsa

While the chorizo & sweet potato quesadillas are cooking, chop the tomatoes finely

Chop the coriander roughly, including the stalks

Add the chopped tomatoes and chopped coriander to a bowl with the reserved chopped red onion, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper

Add the juice of the lime[s] and stir it all together – this is your salsa
