Quesadilla Tortilla Sandwich with Hot Cheese Filling

Tortilla Sandwich with Hot Cheese Filling

Mamta Gupta

This is an easy and quick snack/meal to make from tortillas or leftover Chapatties. You can buy ready made tortillas and chapatties. The quantities given are for one Quesadilla. Experiment with different fillings, leftover vegetable bhajies/sabjies, spiced up leftover roast chicken and meat, tinned fish like tuna or smoked mackerel.


  • 2 chapatties/tortillas

  • 1-1 1/2 heaped tbsp. of grated or crumbled cheese of your choice. Mature cheddar, Stilton, a mix of mozzarella and cheddar, St. Augur or any other type of cheese you have lying around in the fridge.

  • 1/2 small green chilli, thinly sliced (adjust to taste). You can use chilli flakes.

  • 1/2 tbsp. chopped onions, I prefer red ones.

  • 1 tsp. coriander leaves chopped.


  1. Mix all ingredients, except chapatties, in a bowl.

  2. Heat a frying pan to medium hot. It should not be too hot, slow cooking will allow the cheese inside to melt and onions to cook slightly.

  3. Lightly oil a tortilla/chapatti and place it on the pan oiled side down.

  4. Evenly spread the cheese mix and cover with the other chapatti.

  5. Oil the surface of the 2nd chapatti lightly. Cook pressing gently with a flat spatula, until cheese begins to melt and two tortillas stick together.

  6. Turn over once or twice gently, so that the cheese doesn't spill out.

  7. Serve immediately. You can cut it into wedges using a sharp knife or a Pizza slicer. Wedges are good for a buffet or as appetizers/h'orderves.

  8. You can experiment with other fillings.
