This Mushroom Quesadilla is perfect for a quick lunch, lazy dinner, snack, or any time of the day really. It’s so easy to prepare that we know you’ll find this mushroom quesadilla recipe very handy in your home.
The key for this mushroom quesadilla is to make sure to pack the mushrooms with plenty of flavour. Fry them with olive oil, a bit of butter and our bestseller and pantry favourite Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste. Add a little splash of vinegar, baby spinach, a pinch of salt and pepper and your filling is ready.
All that’s left to do is to add grated cheese and a generous spoonful of the chipotle mushroom mixture. Fold your tortillas in half and warm them up over a hot pan. Let the cheese melt, and for them to get all toasty. Make sure both sides of the quesadilla are golden brown and serve them with a good amount of Gran Luchito Tomatillo Salsa.
Heat up a frying pan over medium heat with the olive oil and butter. Once it’s hot enough add in the shallots and fry gently. Add the mushrooms, the Chipotle Paste and stir. Cook them over a high heat for a minute or two.
Once the mushrooms get a bit softer add a splash of vinegar, the baby spinach and let it wilt with the mushrooms. Simply season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and set aside.
Get your Soft Taco Wraps, the grated cheese and the mushroom mixture. Add grated cheese into each wrap, then top with a spoonful of mushrooms and finish with a bit more grated cheese on top. Fold them in half and repeat the same process with the rest of the filling and cheese.
Heat up a nonstick frying pan, and when it’s nice and warm place two quesadillas at a time into it. Let the bottom get toasty and golden brown, then flip to get the other side cooked and the cheese melted.
