• Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Finely chop brown onion and garlic. Grate carrot. Drain sweetcorn. • In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. Add beef mince and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until browned, 3-4 minutes. • Add onion and carrot and cook, stirring, until softened, 5-6 minutes. • SPICY! This is a mild spice blend, but use less if you're sensitive to heat. Add garlic, Tex-Mex spice blend and tomato paste. Cook until fragrant, 1 minute. • Add the water and cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.


• Microwave mini flour tortillas on a plate for 10 second bursts, until warmed through. Arrange tortillas on a lined oven tray. • Divide beef mixture among tortillas, spooning it onto one half of each tortilla. Top with shredded Cheddar cheese. • Fold the empty half of each tortilla over to enclose the filling, then press down gently with a spatula. Brush or spray with a drizzle of olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. • Bake until cheese is melted and tortillas are golden, 10-12 minutes. Spoon any overflowing filling and cheese back into the quesadillas.

TIP: You can place a sheet of baking paper and a second oven tray on top of the quesadillas if they unfold during cooking.


• Meanwhile, wipe out frying pan and return to a high heat. • Add sweetcorn to pan. Cook, tossing, until golden and lightly charred, 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool slightly. • Roughly chop coriander. Add to corn. Season, then stir to combine.


• Divide Mexican beef quesadillas between plates. • Serve with corn and tomato salsa and light sour cream.
