healthy_eatingWe’ve been going on a bit of a Mexican kick these past few weeks at my place.
And here is yet another tasty Mexican inspired meal idea that you can easily serve up for a Friday night dinner in next to no time.
Tweak it if you need to – you may consider leaving out the chilli so that the kids can eat it too; or you could swap the prawns for some cooked chicken.
We like to use the wholegrain tortillas rather than the white ones – they are better for you and have a nice flavour too.

  • 80g light cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • Juice of ½ a lime
  • 1 small red chilli, de-seeded and finely sliced (optional)
  • 3 shallots, finely sliced
  • 2 cups cooked prawns
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Small bunch of fresh coriander leaves
  • ½ cup grated low fat cheddar
  • 6 wholegrain tortillas
  • Olive oil spray
  • Place the cream cheese, lime juice and chilli in a bowl and stir to combine.
  • Add in the shallots and the prawns; and season with salt and pepper.
  • Lay out the 6 tortillas and spread the mixture evenly over one half of each tortilla. Then add the coriander and cheese before folding over the tortilla to close.
  • Spray both sides with a little olive oil.
  • Preheat a frying pan or barbecue to medium and cook the quesadillas for 2 minutes each side. You will see they will colour as they cook, and get a little bit crisp on the outside.
  • Slice in half and serve two halves per person.
  • Optional: drizzle with balsamic vinegar
