Quick and simple. The trick to making this recipe healthy is colour. The best way to get colour is to use a variety of veggies not necessarily a variety of cheeses. 😉 Go light on the cheese.

Ingredients for making 4 Quesadillas:

  • 1 red capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1 can sweetcorn, drained
  • ½ a red onion (optional)
  • 150g grated cheddar cheese
  • 4 x 30cm flour tortillas (whole wheat tortillas are a good healthy option)

Other filling options are:

  • 2 chopped tomatoes and/or 4 chopped mushrooms
  • 150g chopped ham or chopped cooked chicken


  • Grate the cheese
  • Chop the onion, red capsicum and any other vegetables or filling of choice.
  • Drain the sweetcorn
  • Add all the ingredients into a mixing bowl. You may choose to season with pepper, no need to add salt as the cheese will have salt in it.
  • Spread the mixture over two of the tortillas then position the other two tortillas over the mixture to make a sandwich.
  • Grill the quesadillas for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until they are golden brown
  • Diagonally slice the quesadillas into three pieces.
