Chicken Quesadillas with Charred Corn and Smashed Avocado

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 10 minutes   Rated:

This recipe is not using a Thermomix, but is so easily converted to Thermo that you should really give it a go. (Except for the charred corn bit, and well, the cooking of the quesadillas basically, just the filling bit!)

Of course, if you like the occasional knife and a some flames, go all out and follow the recipe as is. (But I confess, I did use the Thermomix for the prep work at least!) I'm not silly after all!

Place cumin and coriander seeds into a hot dry fry pan and roast until fragrant.


Add salt, garlic, onion, chili, chicken, chorizo and capsicum and fry on a low heat until well cooked, stirring occasionally. Allow to cool.


Meanwhile, over an open gas flame or on a BBQ, char the corn on the cob, turning with tongs until the corn has charred marks and starting to turn bright yellow. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Slice kernels off the cob and set aside.


To assemble and cook the quesadillas, preheat a large frying pan on a medium high heat.


Lay out half of the tortillas and spread with grated cheese, chicken sausage mixture, finishing with the feta and another small amount of grated cheese. Top with a second tortilla.


Drizzle the hot frying pan with a little olive oil and place one entire quesadilla into the pan, and cook for around 2–3 minutes, turn over carefully and repeat.


Slice into quarters and serve with fresh lime wedges and additional coriander leaves with Smashed Avocado on the side.
