    Serves: 2 

    • 4 large (about 26cm) tortillas, or 8 small tortillas
    • 2 teaspoons of Vegemite - more or less depending on preference
    • 200g grated cheddar or tasty cheese
    • 1 green chilli, deseeded and chopped (more to taste)
    • Tabasco sauce - or any Mexican hot sauce - to taste

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Preheat the griller to medium.
    2. Spread two of the tortillas with Vegemite to your desired thickness.
    3. Cover evenly with grated cheese and then sprinkle the chopped chilli across the tortillas.
    4. Sprinkle on a little Tabasco.
    5. Sandwich another tortilla on the top and place carefully under the griller.
    6. Grill both sides till they start to brown and the cheese is melted - about 5 mins each side. Flatten them with a spatula or tongs if the tortillas start to lift apart during grilling.
    7. Remove from griller and cut into quarters.

    Ha ha...I wasnt sure if this recipe was serious but its just like toasted vegemite and cheese - but on tortillas - so a lighter version.  -  27 Jan 2009


    Altered ingredient amounts. I didnt sandwich two tortillas together but spread the ingrediemts on half a single tortilla and folded it in half and then cooked each side in the frypan (no oil). Also added tomatoes for some fresh...they were very drippy in the eating and I'd suggest just sticking with the v&c and chilli!  -  27 Jan 2009


    And I thought I knew everything there was to do with vegemite and cheese! These are a great light alternative to v&c on toast...what more can I say?:-)  -  24 Jan 2009
