  1. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
  2. While the pan is heating, place four wraps onto a clean work surface and divide the leftover mince amongst the four wraps. Spread the mince over the entire wrap and top with sliced tomato. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Scatter the grated cheese over the tomato and place a second wrap on top.
  4. Add the quesadilla to the hot pan and toast for 1-2 minutes each side, or until the cheese has melted and the wrap toasted.

Note: Substitute the mince with leftover bean curry or sautéed chicken with peppers would also be delicious as a filling.
