Cheese Sandwich Week – Day 4: Melting Mexican Mini-Quesadillas

Is there anything more deliciously naughty-but-nice than oozing melted cheese?  Surely not, so I was more than excited to discover Leerdammer’s Toastie and Burger cheese – made to a richer, creamier recipe, just perfect for melting.  Of course I couldn’t just take their word for it, so tested it out with these bite-sized Melting Mexican Mini-Quesadillas.

I make quesadillas a lot, (as I’ve mentioned here and here), but thought I would have a go at something more sandwich-sized, (and easier to share with a toddler for lunch!).  Making these in a dry frying pan is super-quick and easy.  Made with avocado, red onion, salsa and fresh coriander, consider them a lovely Mexican twist on a cheese toastie.

Melting Mexican Mini-Quesadillas
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Sandwiches
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 4 quesadillas
  • 2 tortilla wraps
  • 4 slices Leerdammer Toastie & Burger cheese
  • half a red onion, finely sliced
  • half an avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 4 tsp tomato salsa
  • handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  1. Use a pastry cutter roughly 4 inches in diameter, (or cut around a large glass with a knife), to cut out 4 circles from each tortilla. Cut out one circle of the same size from each slice of cheese.
  2. Take 4 of the tortilla circles and top each with a slice of cheese, slices of red onion and avocado, a spoonful of salsa and a sprinkle of coriander.
  3. Heat up a large frying pan and place the quesadillas in carefully. Cook for 1-2 minutes until starting to turn golden brown on the bottom, then flip over and cook for a further minute on the other side.

Disclosure: I was paid to develop a recipe using Leerdammer cheese. I was not expected to write a positive review and any opinions expressed are my own.

    1. Thanks Nadia! x

  4. I’ve been meaning to try quesadillas for a while as an alternative to toasted sandwiches for the kids – I think they’d cook well in a panini press.

    1. Yes great idea about the panini press – haven’t tried it but bet it would be excellent!

  5. Oh these are just all win! Love the idea of making them mini and the creamy Swiss cheese sounds like the perfect addition.

    1. Thanks Emily – yes they were definitely family’s favourite from Leerdammer week! Loved you Leerdammer creations too – so pretty! x
