Kids Quesadilla

Great kids lunch. Goes well served with smashed avocado and salad, and is also great cold in a packed lunch.
Total Time: 15 minutes
Course: Lunch, Main Course
Keyword: Kids
Servings: 4 kids


  • 2 wholemeal wraps
  • 400g cannellini beans (tin; 246g drained weight; mashed)
  • 145g tuna (tin; 102g drained weight)
  • 100g sweetcorn (drained or defrosted)
  • 40g red Leicester or cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1/2 tsp mixed dried herbs


  • Take one wrap and spread over the mashed beans. Sprinkle over the tuna, sweetcorn, cheese and herbs.
  • Cover with the other wrap (like a sandwich) and press down.
  • Heat a griddle pan to a medium heat and slide in the quesadilla, being careful to keep it together. Cook for around 4 minutes until the griddle lines appear and the wrap starts to crisp up.
  • Turn out the quesadilla onto a plate and then slide back onto the griddle to cook the other side for a further 4 minutes. Wait until the lines appear, and the wrap starts to crisp (the cheese should also have melted).
  • Slide onto a board and cut into eight slices.


  • Swap in black beans and feta cheese for Mexican twist.
