Sophias Super Simple Quesadillas

I love mexican food, it's probably my favorite type of food. Quesadillas are so delicious and can be so simple, the recipe i'm writing is just something I improvised, it uses very few ingredients and doesn't take long at all! Perfect for lunch or dinner, it's also not too bad in the health department, especially if you serve it with some guacamole and salad. 

Ingredients: 
You need chilli beans, the Watties ones are great, 1 can makes enough
for 2 quesadillas, use 2 cans for 4 
 I add cumin, just a dash, it's not compulsory but it gives it a really nice
flavor 
 You need cheese in a quesadilla, it's what keeps the tortillas
together and it makes it taste amazing, I use this one because
it's always in the fridge and extremely yum
You can use tortillas or wraps, I usually use these just because 
we always have them and they're healthy, these are small wraps but big
ones are great too 

Method:
1. Pour beans into bowl and mash, you sort of know when it's enough, 
it will feel strange but then you get a fork and stir/mash it so it loosens add cumin and stir in, should look sort of like this:
2. Spread/place beans on 1 tortilla and try get the beans to cover the whole tortilla
3. Sprinkle cheese over, especially at the edges, should look like this:
4. Then place the other tortilla on top and press it down, then place it in a hot pan which has been sprayed with oil 
5. Heat tortilla until it's browned/crispy on both sides, so you flip it, it takes a little bit of practice
it should look like this:

Then just serve it with salad, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, whatever you like and enjoy!
