If you'd like to have some meat in the recipe, then add some cooked chicken just after you add the cheese


  1. First of all, make the salsa by mixing together the tomatoes, avocado and spring onions. Add a squeeze of lemon juice, then season the mixture with some pepper.
  2. Grease a non-stick frying pan with a few drops of vegetable oil. Place the pan over a medium-high heat.
  3. Add a tortilla to the pan and sprinkle one quarter of the cheese over the top. Heat for a few moments until the cheese starts to melt, then sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of the salsa onto one half of the tortilla. Fold in half using a wooden spatula or a fish slice, then cook for another few seconds.
  4. Slide the cooked tortilla onto a serving plate and cut in half. Continue to cook the remaining tortillas in the same way.
