This cheeky chicken dinner is so easy to make. For the Portuguese-style dressing, you'll use fresh lemon juice, chilli and vinegar to both marinate your chicken and spice up your mayo dip. Double whammy!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Drain and rinse the kidney beans


Heat a pot with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the garlic and cook for 1 min

Add the smoked paprika and ground cumin and cook for 30 sec more

Add the kidney beans with 100ml [150ml] cold water and bring to the boil

Cook for 4-5 min or until the beans are beginning to soften


Meanwhile, trim and finely slice the spring onion[s] and add them to a large mixing bowl

Drain the sweetcorn and add it to the bowl

Grate the cheddar cheese into the bowl, season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and mix thoroughly – this is your sweetcorn mixture


Cut the lime[s] in half

Once the kidney beans are beginning to break down, season with a generous pinch of salt and squeeze in the juice of 1/2 [1] lime

Remove the beans from the heat and mash into a semi-smooth paste – these are your refried beans


Divide the refried beans and sweetcorn mixture between the tortilla wraps, covering only half

Fold each tortilla over and press down firmly so you're left with 6 [12] half moon-shaped sandwiches – these are your quesadillas


Add the quesadillas to a baking tray (or two!)

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

Put the stacked baking trays in the oven for 12 min or until the quesadillas are slightly browned and the cheese is melted


Meanwhile, combine the juice of the remaining lime with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper – this is your salad dressing

Combine the chipotle paste and mayonnaise with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil – this is your chipotle mayo
