Despite having 1 cup of light tasty cheese they only have 3.8g of fat per 100g.

Instead of a frying pan you can place in a sandwich press. For a cheesier bite add some mozzarella.

For an even faster meal, substitute the onion and red capsicum with sliced spring onions and roasted capsicum strips from a jar and just add straight onto tortilla.

  • 2 light tortillas
  • 1/2 BBQ chicken breast shredded
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat grated tasty cheese
  • 1 tbsp. onion
  • 1 tbsp. red capsicum
  • 1/4 tomato, diced
  • 1/4 corn kernels
  • Drizzle sweet chilli sauce

Method

  1. Lay a tortilla on a large plate.
  2. Place your ingredients on the tortilla evenly.
  3. Heat your sandwich press or a non stick frypan, spray with cooking spray.
  4. Place your tortilla once heated then second tortilla ontop. If using a a sandwich press don't squash down too tightly.
  5. Cook for a approx 5 mins, if using a pan then flip over to other side.
  6. Once cooked, take out and cut into 4 wedges. Enjoy!
