  • 6 - tortillas
  • 250ml - cheese sauce (ready-made or make your own)
  • 12 - slices gypsy ham
  • 2 - ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 - ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1 - small red onion, finely chopped
  • 250ml - mozzarella, grated
A stack like this is also delicious with smoked or flaked leftover chicken or even bolognaise and beans between the layers.
Preheat the oven to 200°C. Arrange the 6 tortillas on your worktop and spread a spoonful of cheese sauce on each. Arrange the ham and tomatoes on 3 of the tortillas and the avocado slices and red onion on 2 (keep 1 tortilla plain). Sprinkle cheese over all 6. Stack the tortillas carefully on top of each other (start with a ham-and-tomato tortilla and alternate with the two fillings) in an ovenproof dish. Finish with the plain tortilla. Bake the stack for about 20 minutes or until the cheese bubbles. Serve in slices
