Quesadillas are simply browned tortilla wraps with cheese and a selection of your favourite ingredients. In these quesadillas, I added some Ballymaloe Jalapeño Pepper Country Relish which gives them a real kick!


  • 4 soft wheat tortillas
  • 8 slices parma ham
  • 1 sliced red onion
  • handful of sundried tomatoes
  • handful of finely grated cheddar cheese (or some soft cheese)
  • 8 tblsp ballymaloe jalapeño relish
  • drizzle of olive oil


  • Place a dry frying pan over a medium heat.
  • Place all your ingredients in a large bowl and mix.
  • Make a semi circle shape out of your tortillas and lightly fill one semi circle while folding over the other to meet & press down to seal.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side ensuring the cheese is melted and the outside is golden colour.
  • Cut the Quesadillas into triangles and serve with a dollop of jalapeño relish.
  • Serve hot & enjoy.


Do not add oil to the pan because it will just make your quesadillas oily. A dry warm pan is the best way to make your quesadillas.
