“It always makes me laugh when I hear people saying Jalapeño with 'J' and not a 'H' sound. It reminds me of days gone by when I used to say it! Whatever the case these are just gorgeous, the heat of the Jalapeno cooled by the cheese against the foil of the crisp tortilla is just perfect”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 large flour tortilla
  • 75 g grated cheese
  • 8 -12 slices of pickled green jalapeno peppers
  • cooking cooking spray (for frying)


  1. Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and spray lightly with cooking oil.
  2. Cook the tortilla until lightly browned on 1 side and take off the heat.
