Oven dish
Baking Sheet with Baking Paper


Get Prepped
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Zest the lime. Juice half and cut the rest into thick wedges.
  • Roughly chop the coriander.
  • Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.
  • In a small bowl, mix the creme fraiche, lime zest and half the coriander (double for 4p). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Simmer the Sauce
  • Place a large pot over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • When the oil is hot, add the bell pepper, chopped tomatoes, ½ tsp sugar (double for 4p), chilli flakes (use less if you don't like spice) and Mexican spice mix.
  • Stir to combine then leave to simmer until thickened and slightly sticky, 6-8 mins.
Add the Beans
  • Meanwhile, drain and rinse the kidney beans in a sieve. Reserve 8 beans (double for 4p) to use as your mummy's eyes!
  • Once the sauce has reduced, add the beans to the pot along with the lime juice and remaining coriander.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar.

TIP: Loosen the sauce with a splash of water if it becomes too dry.

Make Your Mummies
  • Lay half the tortillas out and spread some of the beans over each.
  • Sprinkle with cheese. Drizzle with BBQ sauce.
  • Cut remaining tortillas into strips about 1cm thick. 
  • Carefully lay the tortilla strips over the bean mixture. Crisis cross each strip slightly to make a menacing mummy's face

TIP: If you're not into scary stuff, don't cut the tortilla into strips. Instead, place the remaining tortillas over the top of bean mix to make quesadillas.

Cook the Quesadillas
  • Carefully transfer the creepy quesadillas to a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 5-7 mins.
Finish and Serve
  • Once cooked, remove from the oven and plate up. 
  • Use reserved kidney beans to make two eyes on each mummy quesadilla.
  • Serve with zesty creme fraiche and lime wedges alongside.
