About Forkful
We are friends who love making simple food look beautiful. We hope our recipes will inspire you to get into the kitchen this season. Aoife McElwain works in front of the camera writing the recipes and styling the food, while Mark Duggan works behind the camera to make sure it all looks as delicious as possible. We work with editors such as Killian Broderick and music supervisors like Nialler9 to make sure that our finished videos look and sound as smart as possible. We work with brands like Glenisk and Folláin to help them create delicious video content for their online platforms. When we're not making videos, we write a weekly column called Speedy Suppers on Thursdays in The Irish Independent. Aoife writes the recipes and styles the food while Mark takes the photographs.  

cheesy quesadillas

Inspired by the Mexican flavours I savoured in San Francisco, these cheesy quesadillas work well as part of a table filled with fish tacos, guacamole and sour cream.

Cheesy Quesadillas with Lime Sour Cream


Serves 2

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


2 large flour tortilla

Large handful of grated cheddar cheese

2 spring onions, finely sliced

Sunflower oil

For the lime sour cream

2 tablespoons of sour cream

Juice of half a lime

Half a green chilli, finely chopped

To serve

Guacamole (see our recipe above)


  1. Place one tortilla on a chopping board. Cover with the cheese and scatter with the slices of spring onion. Place the second tortilla on top. Slice into four pieces.
  1. Heat a drizzle of sunflower oil on a griddle pan (or large frying pan) over a medium heat. Carefully transfer the slices of quesadillas onto the hot pan and fry until the cheese has melted.
  1. Meanwhile, make the lime sour cream by mixing the sour cream, lime and green chilli together.
  1. Serve the quesadillas with a dollop of lime soured cream and a spoonful of guacamole on the side.
