Apricot Quesadillas

Untitled

2-3 tomatoes (depending on size)
1 fresh apricot, de-stoned
1/2 green bell pepper
1 shallot
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
juice and zest of 1/2 a lime
3 tbsp grated Red Leicester or Cheddar Cheese (or cheese of your choice)
2 small tortillas
Peel, halve and finely slice the shallot.

Roughly chop up the tomatoes, bell pepper and apricot together to make a salsa.

Fry this in a small skillet with a little oil, along with the sliced shallot, cinnamon, paprika, lime zest and juice. Cook over a medium heat for about 5 minutes, until the shallot is slightly translucent.

If you’re going to use this skillet to heat the tortilla, then remove the vegetable mixture to a plate and set aside, then clean and dry the skillet. Or, if you’re just going to use a different skillet, just set the veg mixture aside.

Either way, heat a clean, dry skillet and place one tortilla into it. Sprinkle the cheese over the surface of the tortilla and heat on medium-low until the cheese melts and the underside of the tortilla is golden-brown. Quickly spoon the vegetable mixture over the cheesy tortilla, top with the second tortilla and carefully flip the whole thing over using a spatula. Cook until the underside of this second tortilla is golden brown.

Remove from the skillet and cut into wedges.
