For guacamole:
To make the guacamole, use 2 or 3 ripe avocados, 2 or 3 ripe deseeded tomatoes and a couple of deseeded red chillies, and throw all this into a food processor with a handful of peeled and chopped spring onions and a good handful of fresh coriander.

Once this has chopped up nice and fine, add a couple more chopped tomatoes, a good pinch of salt and half of another avocado, chopped, to give it a nice chunky texture.
Transfer everything into a bowl and season carefully with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and a good squeeze of lemon or lime juice.
For quesadillas:
To fill the quesadillas you will need a couple of big handfuls of chopped Cheddar and/or red Leicester cheese, some finely sliced spring onions, a couple of handfuls of chopped fresh coriander, and a red pepper and some red or green chillies all deseeded and finely chopped. Mix all this up in a bowl and then sprinkle half a handful between two layers of tortilla.
You can make up 4, 10 or even 20 quesadillas and keep them in the fridge until you need them if you want.

After sandwiched together of the tortillas, put them in a dry non-stick frying pan on a medium heat, so that after about a minute and a half on each side you are left with a really crispy outside and an oozy, stringy filling.
Serve the quesadillas cut into quarters, with the guacamole, sour cream and a beer.

Note: You can also posh them up a bit using grilled chicken or seafood, leftover pork, shellfish, or a selection of grilled vegetables.
