Method

  1. Gently mix the grated cheese, chopped tomato and chilli, and coriander with some seasoning.
  2. Warm the tortillas for 15 secs each in the microwave to make them more flexible. Divide the filling between them, spooning it on one side of the tortilla, then fold over the other half to make 8 crescents.
  3. Cook them in batches on the barbecue grill or griddle. Cook for a couple of mins until crisp, then flip them over. Cut into quarters and pile on a platter. Serve hot, with guacamole in a bowl.
