Before you start

Depending on the quantity of quesadillas you wish to prepare, you may choose to cook them in a nonstick pan, or to arrange them on a baking sheet then broil them in an oven, at about 10 cm from the heat.


  1. Put half of the tortillas on a working surface. Portion out the apples, onion and ham onto the tortillas. In a small bowl, mix well the mustard, sour cream, lemon juice and curry. Spread this mixture evenly on the tortillas, then top with the cheese and cover with the remaining tortillas.
  2. Sauté each quesadilla in a nonstick pan over medium-low heat 1-2 min, then flip it over using a spatula. Cook an additional 2 min until the cheese has melted and the tortillas are golden-coloured. Pay attention not to overcook the tortillas to a crispy texture – they should remain somewhat soft and pliable. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas. (You can keep them warm in a 95°C/200°F oven for a few minutes). Alternatively, quesadillas may be broiled, about 2 min per side. Do not overcook: tortillas should not be too crisp and remain soft.
  3. Cut each quesadilla into 6 wedges then serve.
