Mexican Cheesy Pork Quesadillas

These quesadillas are bursting with Tex-Mex-spiced pork and gooey melted Cheddar and are all wrapped up in a golden tortilla hug. As one of our most reached-for spice blends, Tex-Mex deserves all of the praise it gets.

Instructions

• Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. • Finely chop garlic. • Drain sweetcorn. • In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over high heat. Cook pork mince, breaking up with a spoon, until browned, 3-4 minutes. • Add soffritto mix 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.

• Arrange mini flour tortillas on a lined oven tray. Divide pork mixture among tortillas, spooning it onto one half of each tortilla. Top with 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.

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 high heat. • Cook corn until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool slightly.

TIP: Cover the pan with a lid if the corn kernels are 'popping' out.
