Christmas Quesadilla Cut Outs

Children will love helping to fill and cut out these scrummy mini Christmas-shaped quesadillas - and have even more fun eating them!
  • Total Time 35 Minutes
  • Spice Level Mild
  • Servings 4
  • Ingredients 6


  • 4 teaspoons caramelized onion chutney or tomato chutney
  • 1 pack Old El Paso™ Regular Flour Tortillas
  • 1 x 250g pack Cheddar cheese slices (10 slices)
  • 125g pack honey roast ham slices (6 large slices)

To serve

  • 125g Old El Paso™ Soured Cream
  • 125g Old El Paso™ Chunky Guacamole


  1. Spread 1 teaspoon of the caramelized onion or tomato chutney over each of 4 of the tortillas. Top each with 2 1/2 slices of cheese, cutting the slices to roughly fit the shape of each tortilla. Place 1 1/2 slices ham on top of each layer of cheese. Don’t worry if the ham and cheese slices don’t reach right to the edge of each tortilla. Top with the remaining 4 tortillas, pressing down gently.
  2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a low-medium heat. Cook the quesadillas, in batches, for 45-60 seconds on each side until golden and the cheese just starts to melt. Remove from the pan with a spatula to a chopping board.
  3. Using Christmas-shaped cookie cutters such as stars, trees, candy canes and snowmen (see Tips) stamp out about 6 shapes from each filled tortilla. Serve warm with Old El Paso™ Soured Cream and Chunky Guacamole to dip.


Use metal cookie cutters to get a clean cut and stamp out a mix of shapes from each filled tortilla. The cutters should be between 8-9cm long and 4-7cm wide.

If cooking with kids, take care to allow quesadillas to cool 2-3 minutes, or until cool enough for children to handle safely.
