    • First of all, make the salsa by mixing together the tomatoes, avocado and spring onions. Add a squeeze of lemon juice, then season the mixture with some pepper.

    • Grease a non-stick frying pan with a few drops of vegetable oil. Place the pan over a medium-high heat.

    • Add a tortilla to the pan and sprinkle one quarter of the cheese over the top. Heat for a few moments until the cheese starts to melt, then sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of the salsa onto one half of the tortilla. Fold in half using a wooden spatula or a fish slice, then cook for another few seconds.

    • Slide the cooked tortilla onto a serving plate and cut in half. Continue to cook the remaining tortillas in the same way.
