Heat oil in frying pan on medium heat. Add onions, mushrooms, garlic and chilli when hot. After a 4-5 mins, add diced bell pepper.

Warm a quesadilla wrap on one side. Remove and place quesadilla with warm side facing up on plate or dry cutting board, add a few tablespoons of mixture to one half of it. Fold over the empty half to make a semi-circle. Prepare one more in the same way.

Spray frying pan very lightly with oil.

Place both back on the warm frying pan and cook on both sides until golden.

Remove carefully with spatula, cut each into 3 slices and enjoy.
