• Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. • Finely chop garlic. Roughly chop baby spinach leaves. Drain the sweetcorn. Thinly slice capsicum. • Heat a large frying pan over high heat. Cook sweetcorn until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl.

TIP: Cover the pan with a lid if the corn kernels are “popping” out. Little cooks: Under adult supervision, older kids can help drain the corn.


• Return the frying pan to high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook beef mince, breaking up with a spoon, until browned, 3-4 minutes. Drain any excess oil from pan. • Add capsicum and cook, stirring, until tender, 4-5 minutes.


• SPICY! This is a mild spice blend, but use less if you're sensitive to heat! Add garlic and Tex-Mex spice blend to the pan and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. • Add tomato paste, the brown sugar and water and cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Season to taste.


• Arrange mini flour tortillas on a lined oven tray. Divide beef filling between tortillas, spooning it onto one half of each tortilla, then top with shredded Cheddar cheese. • Fold the empty half of each tortilla over to enclose the filling and press down gently with a spatula. Brush (or spray) the tortillas with a drizzle of olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. • Bake quesadillas until cheese has melted and tortillas are golden, 10-12 minutes. Spoon any overflowing filling back into the quesadillas.

TIP: You can place a sheet of baking paper and a second oven tray on top of the quesadillas if they unfold during cooking.


• While the quesadillas are baking, add baby spinach to the bowl of charred corn, along with a drizzle of white wine vinegar and olive oil. Season, then stir to combine.

Little cooks: Take the lead and help toss the salsa.


• Divide Tex-Mex beef quesadillas between plates. • Serve with sweetcorn salsa and sour cream. Enjoy!

TIP: Cut the quesadillas into wedges if you prefer!
