Mojito Beef Quesadillas Recipe

On cold nights I love being reminded of summer and the fabulous fresh limes and mint which took over so many of my recipes. A delicious dinner that packs a super punch of flavour and what I love is that there is a mojito cocktail used to cook the meat. So make a few glasses to enjoy with dinner.

Once the beef is cooked add it to a tortilla with some fresh tomatoes, red onion, more fresh mint, grated cheese and chillies if you want a bit of extra spice. Pop it into a sandwich press and cook. Enjoy the delicious taste of the mojito beef in the hot shell.
