This recipe is a real favourite of ours for weekend lunches. It is so simple yet delicious and we never seem to tire of it. maybe because they are so versatile and you can put pretty much whatever you like in them. The recipe comes from Jamie's Dinners and is well worth a try. This time I decided to put some prawns into it and a touch of lime to jazz it up a bit.
Pack of flour tortillas
3 Spring onions
1 red (or any other colour you fancy) pepper, finely chopped
1 red or green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
zest of one lime
a small handful of raw prawns
1 clove of garlic finely chopped
1 handful of grated cheddar and 1 of red leicester (again you can experiment with different cheeses)
1 little olive oil for frying
Heat a frying pan to a high temperature and add a little olive oil. Throw in the chilli and garlic and stir for a couple of minutes before adding the prawns. Fry until the prawns are pink and completely cooked. Slice the prawns once slightly cooled and add them to all the other ingredients in a bowl. Take a flour tortilla and sprinkle a little of the mixture onto it making sure you don't add too much filling as the cheese will just drip out once cooked. Top with another tortilla and sandwich together. Warm a dry frying pan over a medium heat and put the filled tortilla onto it. Cook for a minute or so until golden on one side and then flip over to do the other side. Once cooked, remove from the pan, slice into triangles and serve with some bought or homemade guacamole.
