Quesadillas with Salad and Homemade Salsa
These are so easy to make and they quickly disappear from the dinner table. With homemade salsa, it tastes heavenly. You can eat any leftovers for lunch the next day. PS: If you follow the weekly menu this dish is part of, you should set aside half of the salsa. You will use it for several dinners.


  • 100 g pork mince
  • 140 g chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp taco spice mix
  • 1 dl water
  • 300 g plum tomato
  • 1/2 x red onion

  • 1/2 tsp sriracha
  • 1 x lime
  • 4 x small tortillas
  • 100 g grated cheese
  • 1 x avocado
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 handful lettuce
  • 1 dl corn


  1. Fry pork in a pan. Rinse the chickpeas and put it in the pan together with the taco seasoning and water.
