    Port Salut Quesadillas with Mango Salad

    Quesadillas are Mexican-style snacks consisting of wheat tortillas stuffed with a variety of fillings. Here we have selected Port Salut cheese and chorizo. The cheese has a mellow flavour and springy texture that complements the spicy sausage. Quesadillas make a delicious snack, or they can be cut into smaller pieces and served as an appetiser with drinks.

    • 2 x 150g packs Port Salut, thinly sliced
    • 110g pack Revillo Chorizo de Pueblo
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
    • The mango salad:
    • 1 large ready-to-eat mango, peeled, stoned and roughly chopped
    • 1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
    • Juice of 1 lime
    • Salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper


    1. Place four of the tortillas on a flat surface and cover with the cheese and chorizo slices. Top with the remaining tortillas and set aside while you prepare the mango salad.

    4. Cut each quesadilla into 4-6 wedges and serve warm with a portion of the mango salad.

    Cook's tips

    For added flavour you can sprinkle freshly chopped coriander over the cheese and chorizo before cooking. The rind of Port Salut is edible, but it can be removed before slicing if you prefer not to eat it.
