Super Quick Quesadillas

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Units Scale
  • 5 ml spray olive oil
  • 4 wholegrain wraps
  • 1 1/2 cup grated cheese
  • 400 g tin black beans
  • 400 g tin corn kernels
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 100 g roasted pepper strips
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp Mexican seasoning
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 5 ml hot sauce (optional)


  1. Heat a large fry pan on a medium heat and spray some olive oil to very lightly coat the pan.
  2. Meanwhile, assemble the quesadillas by filling half of each wrap with cheese, beans, corn kernels, avocado, peppers, red onion, a sprinkle of Mexican seasoning and squeeze of lime juice. Repeat the process so all ingredients are evenly distributed amongst your quesadillas.
  3. Fold each wrap in half and one or two at a time, place into the frypan and cook for 2-3 minutes each side until golden brown and the cheese is melted. It may help to place a small saucepan lid on top of the folded wrap to keep it together. Repeat the process with a spray of oil in between each batch until all are cooked.
  4. Serve with your favourite hot sauce, guacamole or fresh tomatoes and any remaining red onion.


  • Gluten-free option: Use gluten-free wraps.
  • This recipe is super quick as none of the ingredients really need to cook.
  • You can also add pickled jalapenos for a bit of extra spice or any other toppings you like (e.g pickled onion, chopped tomatoes).
  • If you want to make it a little fancy,  chop up some tomatoes and combine with remaining red onion and a squeeze of lime juice to make a pico de gallo. Or make a side of guacamole by combining avocado, salt and a squeeze of lime juice.
