Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 4 quesadillas approx 2 serves or 4 for a snack.

1/2 red capsicum
oil spray
1 medium desiree potato (about 125 grams)
2 tbsp olive oil
1/3 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1 rasher of bacon, diced
4 x 20cm flour tortillas
salt and pepper
1 cup spinach leaves
1/2 cup grated tasty cheese

  • Preheat an oven to 200 degrees. Line oven tray with baking paper.
  • Remove seeds and pith from the capsicum and place skin side up on the lined oven tray, lightly spray with oil.
  • Roast for around 20 minutes or until the skin has blistered and started to brown.
  • Remove from oven and place in a plastic bag, allowing it to cool. Remove the skin and cut into thin slices.
  • Cut potato into 0.5 cm thick slices.

  • Bring a pot of water to the boil, place the potato slices in a steamer on top, cover and cook for approximately 10 minutes or until tender.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan and saute the onion and bacon until the onion is soft starting to brown, and the bacon is cooked.

  • Place 1 tortilla on a chopping board and place a quarter of the potato onto one half of the tortilla leaving a small space around the edge.

  • Spoon a quarter of the fried onion and bacon on top of the potato and season with salt and pepper.

  • Top with a quarter of the sliced roasted capsicum, spinach and a quarter of the grated cheese.
  • Brush the curved edge of the tortilla with water and fold the unfilled side over. Press firmly around the edges.
  • Repeat the process for the remaining tortillas.
  • Heat the remaining tbsp of oil in a clean frying pan.
  • Place the filled tortillas in the pan (this may take a few goes depending on size of pan) and cook over a medium heat for approximately 3-4 minutes or until browned underneath.
  • Turn carefully and cook the second side for 3-4 minutes until the cheese has melted and the base is brown.
  • Remove cooked quesadillas from the pan and cut into triangles. Serve warm.
