* ½ cup (40g) grated cheddar cheese

3 Method / Steps

Step 1

Heat a non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add beef and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 5 minutes or until the mince changes colour. Add paprika and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until combined. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until combined and thickened slightly. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 120°C. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add a tortilla and spoon over one-quarter of the mince mixture. Sprinkle with one-quarter of the cheese and top with a tortilla. Use a spatula to press the tortilla down. Cook for 1 minute or until golden. Turn quesadilla over and cook for a further 1 minute or until golden. Transfer to an oven tray and place in the oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining oil, tortillas, mince and cheese.

Step 3

Meanwhile, combine the avocado and coriander leaves in a small bowl. Cut each quesadilla into wedges. Place on serving plates, dollop with sour cream and top with avocado mixture. Serve immediately.
