Potato and Chorizo Quesadillas

July 20, 2011

Last night we had one of my favourite Boys over, one of my uni crew, who is also going to witness my marriage.

He wanted to bring a bottle of wine over to share with myself and the Boy so I decided to make something tasty to go with this wine.

Quesadillas! Yup, more mexican food, I am sorry but it might be my favourite.

You need;
350g new potatoes, thinly sliced
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 red chilli
1 orange pepper
1 clove of garlic chopped
200g chorizo chopped
sea salt and black pepper 
4 tortillas
1 ball buffalo mozzarella
150g grated cheddar cheese
olive oil

1. Fry the potatoes until cooked through, this will take about 10 minutes.
Cook the onion until softening then add the garlic, chilli and pepper, cook for another 5 minutes before adding the chorizo, then cook for another 5 minutes until the sausage begins to soften then finally add the potatoes and put the mix to one side.

Season to taste, I also added some smoked paprika here.

2. When ready to eat, place one tortilla in your frying pan, add some filling then cheese to taste top with another tortilla. These are tricky to turn over without the filling falling out so I put a plate over the top then flipped it and then slid it back into the pan.

You should need no more than 2-3 minutes on each side.

Then cut into triangle and scoff!

I also made a fresh salad with baby leaves, avocado, pepper, tomatoes and just a little olive oil and salt and pepper.

And a salsa, always serve salsa with Mexican food, check out my recipe here and lots of sour cream for dipping.

Served with bubbles and a Chambertin Grand Cru 1996 Cuvee Heritiers Latour… which was beautiful, and maybe more suited to a less spicy dinner but luckily I didn’t go too crazy with the chilli.

Thanks Baz!
