Chorizo and Sweet Potato Quesadillas
  1. Bake your sweet potatoes either in the oven or the microwave. The time will depend on the size you use and you method of cooking. I pricked mine all over with a fork and cooked them for 6 minutes on the baked potato setting of our microwave, but they will obviously take longer in the oven
  2. Heat a large frying pan and fry the chorizo – you shouldn’t need any oil as the chorizo contains a lot of fat and as you cook it the oil will release from the chorizo. Once most of the oil has been released from the meat add the onion and chilli to the pan and fry for 4-5 minutes, until the onion is soft. Scoop out the sweet potato and add that to the pan, making sure it is well mixed in with the chorizo and the onion.
  3. Lay out each wrap and divide the potato mixture between to two wraps – only spreading the mixture over half of it. Top with the cheeses, spring onion and courgette. Fold the uncovered side of the wrap over the filling so you have a half moon and repeat this process with the other wrap
  4. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan and place both the quesadillas in the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Flip the quesadillas over and cook for another 2 minutes on the other side. If they aren’t quite crispy enough then continue to cook them for a minute on each side until they are to your liking.
  5. Plate up and enjoy with heaps of salad.
