Serves 12

  • 500g rotisserie chicken breast meat
  • 12 burrito tortillas
  • 3 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • ½ cup salsa
  • 2 tbs taco seasoning
  • 2 cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • Sour cream, to serve
  • Lime wedges, to serve

  • 1 tbs extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 2 avocados, roughly chopped
  • 1 white onion finely chopped
  • 3 long red chillis, seeded, finely chopped
  • 3 tbs chopped coriander, reserving a few leaves for garnish
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Salt and pepper, to season


To make the avocado salsa, place all ingredients into a large bowl and gently mix until well combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
For the quesadillas, combine chicken, taco seasoning and kidney beans in a large bowl. Lay one tortilla on a chopping board and scatter half the tortilla with 2 tablespoons of cheese. Scatter chicken mixture over the top and dollop with 2 teaspoons of tomato salsa. Top with 1 tablespoon of cheese, fold over and toast in a sandwich press until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is golden brown, about 2 minutes each side. Repeat for remaining tortillas and filling.
Cut quesadillas in half, and serve with guacamole, sour cream, fresh coriander and salsa.
