Recipe: Chicken, Leerdammer and Salsa Tortillas

Wow, this recipe makes me so happy. So easy to make and so delicious. Tender cooked chicken, with melty leerdammer cheese and zingy salsa, sandwiched between two toasted tortillas- with some extra salsa on the side to dip in. A very adaptable recipe too- I make another version of this on the blog with cheddar, chicken, sweet chilli sauce and coriander. As long as you have the tortillas, and some sort of cheese (when cheese melts, it acts as a sort of "glue" to stop the other ingredients from falling out), you can put whatever ingredients you want in them. This salsa recipe is THE BOMB as well, one of my most earlier recipes i designed when i was about 8 years old, usually to have with lime Doritos whilst watching a movie. This recipe is fab as a quick lunch, or just perfect food for parties- they go quick, trust me!

Me and my fella had the tortillas as a sort of main course dinner the other day, so this is just a serving suggestion- i had the tortillas with some turmeric veg rice, with the salsa and a dollop of natural yogurt.
Chicken, Leerdammer and Salsa Tortillas (serves 4 as a lunch, or 6 as a party food!)

500g passata
½ red onion, finely diced
Large handful fresh coriander, finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
½ tsp lime juice
1 tsp lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

8 soft Mission Deli tortilla wraps
260g finely grated Leerdammer
260g diced cooked chicken

1)      Mix together all the salsa ingredients together and season to taste. Set aside.
2)      Put one tortilla wrap on a plate. Top with ¼ of the chicken and Leerdammer, and 2 tbsp of the salsa, spaced evenly, and put the other tortilla wrap on top. Press down firmly (to prevent ingredients from falling out).
3)      Heat a non-stick frying pan on a medium/high heat. Put the stuffed tortilla wrap onto the hot frying pan for 2 minutes. Flip over and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat this process for the other wraps. Slice tortillas into quarters and serve with ramekins of the salsa on the side.
