Ingredient List


  • 12 rashers smoked streaky bacon
  • 8 Old El Paso™ Super Soft Regular Flour Tortillas
  • 1/2 tin (400g) Old El Paso™ Refried Beans
  • 200g Cheddar, grated (or a mix of Cheddar and Red Leicester)
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 25g butter, melted

To Serve

  • Old El Paso™ Thick ‘N’ Chunky Salsa
  • Soured cream


  1. Cook the bacon rashers under a pre-heated grill for 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally until very crisp. Remove and drain on kitchen paper. Leave to cool then roughly chop.
  2. Spread half of each tortilla with some refried beans then top with grated cheese, chopped bacon and spring onions. Fold each tortilla over the filling with a spatula and press down gently. Lightly brush both sides of each tortilla with melted butter.
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Cook 2 quesadillas at a time, for 3-4 minutes, turning once until golden brown and heated through. Cut into wedges and serve with salsa and soured cream.
