Seriously Good Breakfast Quesadillas

November 11

Breakfast Quesadillas were never something I made until I moved to Los Angeles. They are now our go to breakfast when we have visitors over! Go heavy on the cheese to ensure ultimate indulgence.

  1. 1. Heat one tablespoon of the oil along with the chorizo and toss in the pan for 1-2 minutes until they pick up a little colour, set aside on a plate.
  2. 2. Remove a little of the oil then add the butter to the pan, once the butter has melted add the eggs. Season. Cook gently, folding and stirring, until just set. This will only take a minute, or less. Scoop out of the pan and set aside. Wipe the pan clean.
  3. 3. Heat a griddle pan over a medium, high heat. Place a tortilla on, scatter ¼ of the cheese over the entire tortilla. Then over one side of the tortilla scatter the jalapenos, spring onion, cooked chorizo and egg along with a ¼ of the chorizo, eggs and cheese onto one half of the tortilla, folding the other half on top. Toast for a minute on each side until golden and the cheese has melted. Repeat with the remaining three tortillas.
  4. 4. To serve, sprinkle with coriander and a drizzle of hot sauce.
