4 Tbsp of The Friendly Food Co ‘Na’cho Problem’ spice mix
500g of lean beef mince
1x carrot grated
1x red capsicum diced
1 cup corn kernels (thawed from frozen, canned or sliced off the cob)
¼ cup tomato paste
2 large handfuls of baby spinach
12 small gluten-free tortillas
100g grated Cheese (Cheddar or Edam)
160g Sour Cream (optional)
Coriander to garnish (optional)
Preheat the oven to 200°C fan-forced.
Add a drizzle of olive oil to a large fry pan over high heat. Add the beef mince and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until just browned (3-5 minutes).
Add 4 Tbsp of Na’cho Problem, The Friendly Food Co spice mix. Cook and stir in for 1 min, add a splash of water if it starts sticking to the pan.
Add grated carrot, diced capsicum, corn and cook for 5 minutes
Add tomato paste, a splash of water and spinach and cook, stirring until combined, until spinach has wilted (1-2 minutes).
Arrange the tortillas on a lined oven tray. Divide the beef mixture between the tortillas by spooning the mixture onto one half of each tortilla and top with a sprinkle cheese. Fold the empty half of each tortilla over and lightly press down to enclose the filling. Lightly spray (or brush) the top of each tortilla with olive oil.
Bake the quesadillas for approximately 10-12 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the tortillas are golden.
Serve with a side of salad and a dollop of sour cream and garnish with coriander.
